31 Days: Phalaenopsis Orchid Bouquet {Day 19}

by Lynn on October 19, 2011

phalaenopsis orchid and Swarovski crystal bouquetWelcome to day 19 of my 31 Days of Inspiring Bouquet Ideas! This design is quite different from most of the others featured in this series, in that the bouquet is made almost entirely of phalaenopsis orchids. Each flower is individually hand-wired and then arranged in a cascade design. The wires are fashioned into a handle and wrapped in a satin ribbon. A bit of green plumosa was added for contrast.

Following a private home ceremony, the reception was held at the Royal Vista Golf Club in Walnut, CA. Silver luster bowls held flowers similar to those in the maids’ bouquets, to which white stock and bear grass were also added. Lavender rose petals surrounded the reception arrangements.
