Shell Bouquet

Martha Stewart Weddings, Summer 2000

Some may consider seashells the flowers of the ocean. Use them with a welter of floral blossoms to create a remarkable terrestrial bouquet. First, give the shells stems, made from 22-gauge cloth-wrapped white floral wire. To attach wire to shells with cavities, partially fill cavity with hot glue and insert wire stem. Flat shells and starfish require that the wire be curled or looped at the end and then pressed into a dab of glue. Arrange both flowers and stemmed shells together; wrap stems with a wide ribbon held firm with pearl-head pins.
