Nothing cheers up someone more than a bouquet of flowers. We love adding our own twist to any traditional gift and turned this bouquet into a party bouquet with a few additional accents. Here's how!

how to make a party bouquet!

You'll need:

Ban.do party straw

mini honeycomb balls

glitter paper

- hot glue gun (for gold glitter circles)

- vintage pins

- flowers (we used: eucalyptus, ranunculus, protea, blue thistle, lisianthus, brunia)

how to make a party bouquet!

Here's how:

Start with greenery to add texture and fullness to your bouquet. Then, add secondary flowers which are 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. Finally, add the "party" with honey combs on skewers, a party straw, and gold circles on skewers. 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 fabric and adding a vintage brooch to finish.
