Succulents are just one of those things that never fail to make us smile. Peonies too! So when thinking about which bouquet design to make next with silk flowers from Afloral, we decided to use all our summertime favorites. Ranunculus, roses, gypsophila to name a few more. Whether you’re a summer bride or simply like the idea of flower arrangements to brighten up your home, this is the perfect bouquet recipe to whip up in a flash.

We’ll spare you the succulent puns – except to say these faux plants had us at aloe. C’mon, we had to! There’s beauty in the simplicity of the design (and even more relief!) because it means you don’t have to come from a design background to get this arrangement out the door.

Plus, this bouquet has a more polished look for those who aren’t sold on the unruly bouquets.

What You’ll Need:

The secret sauce is in the stems. Begin with a couple of your biggest blooms to act as your anchor in the center, then fill with the others throughout, moving in a circular pattern. Snip some of the stems down to add varying height, and thus, dimension. You can tie a couple stems together with floral tape as you go to eliminate bulkiness in the finished project.

As you place each bloom in your hand one at a time, pay attention to the way the bouquet is filling out and tweak as necessary. We suggest going at an angle so the blooms face out rather than up! Once you’re pleased with your final design, tape it all together (you can even use clear shipping tape) and wrap with a complementary ribbon.
