Dressing the Bouquet: Exposed Stems

Martha Stewart Weddings, Fall 1999

Arrange bouquet; tape stems just below blooms. For bridal arrangement (left, right bouquet in picture), cut length of ribbon 3 inches longer than circumference of stem cluster. Wrap ribbon around stems; fold edge under; secure with decorative pins (below). Finish with crisscross of thinner velvet ribbon; secure with pin. For bridesmaid bouquet (left, left bouquet in picture), wrap three times with thin ribbon, knot, and secure with a pin.
