When using large flowers like hydrangeas with smaller flowers like roses, threading is an effective technique to create and even patterned bouquet. Insert the very end of the stem through the florets of the hydrangea and thread the stem through just like you are sewing.
Grab the stem and pull it through the space in the hydrangeas, just like putting a needle and thread through fabric. This will allow you to have roses poking out of the hydrangeas which will help you make a more consistent color pattern.
Continue to add to your pattern and secure the flowers with stem wrap. Once you have created the size you desire, use stem wrap to secure all the flowers together tightly. Next, cut all the stems so they are the same length.
There are many ways to secure ribbon and create your bouquet wrap. You can use corsage pins to create a beautiful corseted look or you can use floral adhesive to hide all mechanics. When using corsage pins make sure you are pushing the pins into the stems vertically so the ends do not poke out the other side and injure the bride or bridesmaids.
