DIY Pink and Purple Bouquet Recipe

Happy Monday morning! Here in Ottawa, we have our first snowy day of the season and frankly, I'm miserable. I'm not a winter person, so I figured that featuring Vancouver-based Kirill Bordon and Limelight Floral Design's DIY spring bouquet recipe would be a perfect way to forget the winter blahs and add some fun colour to the day. There's nothing that brightens up my day up more than flowers. 

The Recipe

10 purple fringed tulips
10 pink fringed tulips
5 green hypericum berries
9 blue fragrant hyacinth
5 green viburnum
5 purple mokara orchid blooms
5 pink peonies
3 eryngium thistles

From Limelight Floral Design:

“I created the pink and purple toned bouquet in a posy style, bound the stems with satin ribbon and finished with pearl pins. A mix of blue eryngium thistles, green viburnum, pink peonies, blue hyacinth, fringed tulips and purple mokara orchids made for a bouquet full of texture and interest.

The budget for such a bouquet would vary widely depending on the season. If a bride is on a strict floral budget, it is best that she ask her florist to create something beautiful in her colors using local, in season flowers. Peonies, for example, can range in price from a few dollars a stem for local, in season blooms and up to twelve dollars per stem if they are not in season and need to be imported. It is not uncommon for Brides to choose their wedding dates based on the availability of their favorite flowers! We are always happy to work with our brides to help them choose colours and blooms that reflect their personal style.”
