Test and Success

You know what's super easy?  Making a bouquet! 

Last week, I accepted a new job, so Michael had some congratulatory flowers waiting for me when I got home from work.  By the time the flowers were on the decline this week, I figured that it was a perfect opportunity to try my hand at making a bouquet. 

After stripping the stems of their leaves, I bundled the flowers together at a similar height and wound the stems with some beading wire (I didn't have a floral wire on hand). 

Then, I cut all of the stems to a uniform length.

Finally, I wrapped the stems in a ribbon and tied a bow.  How easy?!  This certainly bolsters my confidence on moving forward with my DIY flowers plan for my wedding.
