We have ALWAYS been huge fans of Savannah, GA vendor, Colonial House of Flowers. The Statesboro-based crew brings an effortless style to any wedding blooms they touch and we can never get enough of their wonderful creations. Today, they're stopping by the blog for a DIY Easy Bouquet Delivery with the help of The Happy Bloom, so dive in and check it out!
Adding a handmade bouquet and centerpieces to your wedding is the perfect touch. And who doesn't love an easy way to transport it all! Take it from us, sometimes delivery can be tricky. Carry your flowers with this easy DIY Bouquet Box. Use the super easy steps here, or have a sweet family member make and bring the bouquets. Grab a box, a knife, and a glass of wine to celebrate. Viola! Your flowers will arrive in a style that's a whole new level of fresh and pretty!
Centerpiece or bouquet you've made
ONE - Gather you supplies. To prepare the bouquet for transport select your ribbon to finish the bouquet. Tie it. And, give the flower one last trim before their debut. If the delivery is the day of the event the bouquet will be fine without a water source. In fact, it will help the blooms open up for a natural, organic look.
TWO - Use the knife to cut an X in the box. It's helpful to push in one side (looks like a triangle), but not necessary. We did here to show you what we mean. Cut as many X's as needed to hold the bridesmaids and bridal bouquets and centerpieces. The only tip is to make sure the X's are far enough apart the blooms from each arrangement won't touch one another. It's simple!
THREE - Delicately push the bouquet into the box. A vase can be used if you do this ahead of time. However, for a day-of delivery you can simply put the bouquet in the box without a water source. Vases fit snugly in the X, too.
FOUR - Love on your flowers and tell them to have the best day! We suggest celebrating with a glass of wine, of course. Get ready, it's wedding day!
Note: In the case, you hired a professional to make your bouquet this is a trick that is easy on the wallet. It is easy and saves the expense of a professional florist delivery. Plus, it's always sweet to have a family member deliver something so special.
The doors of Colonial House of Flowers opened in 1968. We've been making deliveries ever since! We love nothing more than helping brides and families and friends create and deliver their own flowers.
