How to Choose a Flower for Bouquet

Before you start creating your simple flower bouquet, you need to answer a simple question: what kind of bouquet do you want? You can use Pinterest for this, as there are many different options. If you're not sure, look at some pictures for inspiration.

You can also ask a florist for help in choosing the right flowers. Rosaholics can help you choose the perfect rose for your bouquet. We have a wide selection of flowers, from classic red roses to unique blue or black. It all depends only on your wish for your bouquet. 

You can also choose the type of flower you want. For example, we have both long-stemmed. And, of course, our store offers roses for your DIY bouquet and others, such as alstroemerias or sunflowers.

 

Choose Only Fresh Flowers

It is one of the essential steps in creating a simple flower bouquet. After all, you want your bouquet to last as long as possible. So make sure that you choose only the freshest flowers for your arrangement.

At Rosaholics, we offer only the freshest roses from our farm. But if you can't do that, there are a few things you can look out for when choosing your flowers:

  • The petals should be firm and not wilted.
  • The leaves should be green, not yellow or brown.
  • The stem should be moist, not dry.

Decide on a Color Scheme

Decide on a Color Scheme

Now that you've chosen your flowers, it's time to decide on a colour scheme. You can choose one dominant colour or make the bouquet more variegated. Again, it all depends on your personal preferences.

If you want to make a simple bouquet, we recommend sticking with one or two colours. But if you're feeling more creative, try using different colours in your arrangement. You can even mix and match different shades of the same colour.

 

Use In-season Flowers

Remove Leaves and Thorns

Remove Leaves and Thorns

Now that you have all the materials, it's time to start making a simple flower bouquet. The first step is to remove the leaves and thorns from the stems of the roses.

To do this, take the rose in one hand and carefully tear off the leaves and thorns. 

If you like, you can also cut the flower stems at an angle. Use scissors to do this, and cut the tip of the stem at a 45-degree angle. It will help them absorb more water and stay fresh longer.

 

Start with a Focal Flower

Start with a Focal Flower

The next step is to choose a focal flower. It is the central flower in your DIY flower bouquets, so make sure it's something you like.

Once you've chosen your focal flower, cut the stem at an angle and place it in the centre of the wrapping paper. 

If you are using a box, put floral foam on the bottom before adding the flowers there.

 

Add Some Greenery

Add Some Greenery

Now, it's time to add some greenery to make your bouquet more exquisite. It will help fill in the empty spaces and make the bouquet look more voluminous. 

To do this, take some leaves and arrange them around the central flower. Make sure they are evenly distributed. But don't overdo it so that your bouquet doesn't consist of just leaves.

 

Add More Flowers

Add More Flowers

Now, it's time to add more flowers to your DIY bouquet. First, add smaller flowers. Trim the stems at an angle and insert them in wrapping paper or floral foam, ensuring they are evenly distributed around the central flower. 

You can mix different shades and types of flowers at this stage. As you add flowers, pay attention to the shape of the bouquet. You can make it round, oval or even asymmetrical. It all depends on your personal preferences.

 

More Decorations

More Decorations

 

How to make the bouquet more unique? You can add more embellishments. For example, if your bouquet consists of greenery and white roses, why don't you add more peacock feathers? Do you think that's weird? But no, such bouquets do exist! Just use your imagination and have fun.

 

Complete the Bouquet

Complete the Bouquet

Now that your bouquet is ready, it's time to add the finishing touch. You need to secure your DIY flower bouquet so that it stays firmly in place and doesn't fall apart. If you assemble the bouquet in a box, you have nothing to worry about; the bouquet will hold securely only if you do not play soccer with the box.

If the bouquet is assembled in wrapping paper, first cut a long strip of floral ribbon. Then make a loop from one end of the ribbon and pass the other end through it. You can use ribbons in different colours or patterns to make your simple bouquet even more unique.

 

PS: If your DIY bouquet is a wedding bouquet, you can use beaded ribbon for a more elegant look.
