In some ways, creating a bouquet isn’t that different from putting together an outfit in the morning. You need a mixture of texture, size, and color to create a look that’s truly dynamic and stands out. Monochromatic can be cool for certain occasions, but generally speaking, the best looks — in clothes, flowers, and life — come from a flow of color.

These mini bouquets were created for a birthday party, so instead of relying on volume and height to make a statement, we had to rely on the vibrancy of the flowers. To match the decor, reds and pinks were a must, but just those two hues alone screamed Valentine’s Day (and not in a cool way like our February Bouquet of the Month!) So, taking a note from today’s trendiest movement, this bouquet went ombre!

Do It!:

1. Create the center of your bouquet by gathering the bigger flowers (roses, anemone, ranunculus, hydrangea, and lisianthus) and securing the stems with a thin elastic.

2. Place this grouping in your small vase, and add eucalyptus, hanging amaranthus, strawflower, protea, and stock flower around the edges for texture, height, and diversity. Once the core color story is told with the center group of flowers it all comes down to accessorizing.

3. Feel free to mix and match the second set of flowers between mini bouquets. Have tall eucalyptus branches in one and a dramatic hanging amaranthus in another. The variety will work well since they’re small and separate!
