Lilac Blue Bouquet Inspiration

The arched contour of this arrangement is achieved by wiring both flowers and berries. Jewel-tone viburnum berries accentuate the fluttery lightness of the purple hybrid delphiniums and mirror their dark centers. Slender brodiaea blooms hang upside down at the edges of the bouquet. A vintage green satin ribbon covers the handle and is tied with a two-tone bow.

These plump grape-hyacinth and delicate lavender florets are dressed with a mauve silk handle; a pin adorned with a lavender glass bead secures the ribbon on top.

A traditionally shaped bouquet becomes more unexpected with a profusion of blues, including azure miniature irises, and a variety of textures. Muscari resembles small bunches of grapes; feathery scilla in the palest blue gives a sense of delicacy. The picot-edge bow reflects the flowers' wispiness.
