Yesterday,I decided to work on the "filler" flowers first. First up was the tuberose flowers. They are a tropical flower that has the most fragrant scent. When you go to Hawaii, you know when you smell tuberose. I LOVE the smell.
Anyway, I thought the tuberose would be something very different seeing as Miss Pineapple is getting married in Pennsylvania and I figured they probably don't get that where they live. She wanted some cream elements in her bouquets so I decided to use tuberose and stephanotis flowers to bring that element into her arrangements.
For the good part of yesterday, I made 40 tuberose flowers. They are small... probably no more than 1 inch in diameter so the petals are pretty small and skinny. The reason it took the good part of the day to make is because the tuberose flower consists of 21 petals per flower. Am I insane you ask??? Probably, but you can see how much time and skill goes into each one of these flowers even as small as these. It just goes to show how much I LOVE what I do.
Anyway, these are some pictures I thought I would share... More to come tomorrow... back to making more flowers... Did I mention this order is 6 bouquets, 9 boutonnieres, 3 corsages and 1 cake topper??? Lots to do so back to work for me!
