Hey DIYers! I'm looking for advice about making my own bouquets. It's just me and my sister (MOH), and I have been envisioning a wildflower bouquet. I just got a quote from a florist, and while the bouquet photos she showed me are all perfectly lovely, I'm having a hard time reconciling the price when what I really want are the kinds of flowers that grow in my mother's garden.
Mom has all the flowers I like, they're all perennials, and they all bloom at the right time. So, that being said:
1. Are there things I should know about making a nice bouquet that might dissuade me from trying to do it on my own? (I am not crafty, but sister-MOH is, and while I will not voluntell her, I imagine she'll be into it).
2. If you all think it's doable, what are your tips?
Thanks, everyone. I so rarely feel the itch to do anything artistic that I am at a bit of a loss about the logistics here, so I appreciate any advice you have!
