Floral hoops are one of the most exciting trends transforming the landscape of wedding décor. They make fantastic centerpieces, brilliant hanging decorations, and serve as an on-trend alternative to traditional bouquets for brides and bridal attendants. 

Learn how to create a gorgeous yet super easy hoop-shaped bouquet with this quick video demonstration lead by Vonda LaFever AIFD, PFCI, CFD. This design uses permanent botanicals readily available from Pioneer Imports & Wholesale – a versatile faux silver dollar eucalyptus bush and realistic silk rose in a soft cream tone – but you could adapt this design to use any faux flowers or foliage from Pioneer. 

This design starts with an ordinary embroidery hoop that you can purchase at any craft store. These are especially useful because they are available in such a wide variety of sizes, suitable for any purpose. 

Vonda begins by layering sprigs of faux eucalyptus around the hoop, starting at the hoop screw and radiating outward. Matching green floral wire secures the faux eucalyptus on both sides. Vonda takes a moment to fluff up the eucalyptus for a fuller and more realistic appearance before moving on.

Silk roses are the next addition. She starts with the largest silk flowers near the center and continues with progressively smaller ones along one side, with each stem trimmed accordingly. More floral wire secures these silk roses in place. 

To finish the piece, Vonda wraps a bit of cream white ribbon around the hoop screw, coordinating with the silk roses and giving the entire composition a clean and professional appearance. If used as a bouquet rather than a decoration, the ribbon also gives the bride or bridal attendant something comfortable to use as a handle. 

The result is a sleek and stylish permanent botanical bouquet with a contemporary twist. The power of this design is its simplicity – easy to create with just a few ingredients, and easy to customize to suit any style of event or occasion.
