Earth Fare wanted some bouquets for giveaways during a Simply Well event they had.
I decided to play around with flower combinations and colors with Ken Stillman’s Flower Bouquet design.
I made 3 bouquets for Earth Fare and also another bouquet for a friend of mine who is recovering from a nasty cold.
I made a bouquet with pink roses, a bouquet with purple daisies and irises, and a bouquet with yellow and white daisies for Earth Fare and an all purple daisy bouquet for my friend. (Links highlighted are YouTube video tutorials by Yonaimy. Note, I just made two pinch twists for my roses but I like the three better. )
I played around with placement and I didn’t have plates on the bottom for the most part but then added some towards the end as I realized that would aid in transportation. I also added my business cards to them in a pretty way. Next time I will have black shiny plates like Ken uses.
They were a huge hit with everyone! It was interesting to see that the bouquets faired evenly as far as people’s favorites. My friend absolutely loved hers too!

For my friend,
I had come across Ken Stillman’s YouTube tutorial for a beautiful balloon flower bouquet a while ago and just now got to it,lol.
He has lot of balloon tutorials out there but this was my first time watching and learning from one. I plan on investing in some to pay for tutorials and or DVD’s he has made sometime this year. Link to his YouTube tutorial for flower bouquet, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N08fWDYtEnE.
It is just lovely. I made some modifications to it. I alternated between pink and rose colors rather than using just one color for the flowers and I made 9 stems rather then 7. I used neon balloons for bow and ribbon like trim on the bottom.
I may have used a bigger plate, I can’t remember the size he used in video but I have a feeling the one I used was bigger. I actually ended up taking it off anyhow,lol.
My bouquet turned out to be 34 inches tall.
I gave it to as awesome lady named Barb Storm who works at the MACC. She had some papers saved for me with an article about me winning the decorating contest and so when I went to get them, I wanted to bring her something and she recently had a birthday afterall. She absolutely loved it! And I loved seeing my first news article about me, how exciting is that?
