I love a pretty ombré and with Valentine’s Day still lingering on my mind with all the red and pink colors, I thought it would be fun to share how easy it is to put together a pink ombré bridal bouquet!
The “ingredients” to this bouquet:
- 1-2 stems of magenta red hydrangea (order by request)
- 3-4 pink garden roses (I used a variety called “Joyce”)
- 2-3 light pink peonies
- 2-3 white peonies
The beauty of creating a pink ombré bridal bouquet like this is that you don’t need to use the exact same mix of flowers. You could use white roses or white hydrangeas instead of peonies and use dark red roses or burgundy red peonies instead of magenta hydrangea.
Before you begin arranging, you’ll want to prep the flowers. That means removing any foliage from the stems and trimming off any thorns from the roses.
Start with the darkest color bloom. I used 2 stems of the magenta hydrangea, but depending on the bloom size and also how big you want your bouquet, you may only need 1 stem.
Next, arrange the garden roses in a line right next to the hydrangea.
Then place the light pink peonies next to the garden roses, creating another line of color.
Last, arrange the white peonies next to the pink peonies creating the last line of color in the bouquet.
If the blooms move around as you’re creating the bouquet, just loosen your hold on the stems and carefully move them around to line up the ombré colors. You may also need to gently pull up stems or push them down to adjust their height in order to create a nice rounded bouquet shape.
Once everything is in place, use floral tape to wrap the stems and secure everything together. Then give the stems an even trim.
Wrap the stems with ribbon of your choice and I used a mix of matching pink ombré ribbons to create a trail.
That’s all there is to it to create a pink ombré bridal bouquet! And if you’re not planning a wedding, this bouquet is perfect as a centerpiece bouquet for a bridal shower, baby shower or as a luxe gift for a friend! Just use a similar mix of flowers and arrange them in the same way in a vase.
