In this detailed design demonstration, Vonda LaFever AIFD, PFCI, CFD builds a beautiful bridal bouquet – or attendant’s bouquet – using wholesale silk flowers and permanent botanicals from Pioneer Imports & Wholesale. 

This bouquet features silk hydrangea, silk calla lilies, silk cherry blossom, and silk miniature ivy. 

Vonda begins with two stems of silk hydrangea, bending the stem just a little toward the front and back so it looks like one larger blossom. To form the cascade, Vonda uses part of a silk cherry blossom garland that has been cut to size and trimmed to reduce visual weight. 

Bringing the cherry blossom toward the front of the design creates the cascading line that defines this type of bouquet. Vonda then adds another piece of cherry blossom on the other side to continue the line upward and through the top, a smart way to balance the composition. A few more sprigs around the edges completes the outline.

Next, Vonda adds silk calla lilies through the hydrangea blossom. She notes that the beauty of permanent botanicals is that you can move and adjust them however you want – much easier than working with fresh flowers. Vonda even bends one of the calla lilies to complete the downward cascading line. 

The final addition to this bouquet is a selection of realistic silk ivy. Vonda begins by using the elegant ivy to continue the cascade, then brings a few cuttings toward the top for balance. She takes care to use the ivy conservatively to ensure it does not take away from the cherry blossom, hydrangea, or calla lilies. 

A clear zip tie secures the arrangement, but you can use floral tape or a variety of other solutions if desired. 

Complete the design by fluffing and adjusting as needed. Here, you’ll see that Vonda decides to add a little bit of cherry blossom to the center of the design using hot glue so that it appears to come through the blossoms rather than just collaring the bouquet. 

The result is a spectacular bouquet that can bring springtime charm to any wedding. Perfect for brides or attendants alike, this piece is sure to capture the attention of bridal show attendees.
