how to make mini bouquets

Flowers are the easiest, yet most beautiful, thing you can give to anyone at anytime for a little pick-me-up. Today, we made a few versions of a mini bouquet to make for friends, co-workers, or sweethearts on Valentine's Day...or for really any day of the year.

To give each bouquet variety, we're showing you exactly what was used to create each version. In general, start with greenery to add texture and fullness to your bouquet, then, add secondary flowers which is usually smaller than your main flower. Finally, add one to three focal flowers—these are the bigger and more special flowers and the stars of the show. While you assemble, make sure you stagger the heights of the pieces so that they can all be seen from the front, then trim the stems evenly at the bottom before wrapping them in tissue paper. Here are a few different examples...

3. Sunshine — For a teacher or co-worker, shades of yellow evoke friendship, trust, and respect. Yellow makes a beautiful bouquet year-round.

I love these so much, I just want to make dozens and hand them out to people wherever I go!
