Mayesh Design Star: Hand-Tied Bouquet

Mayesh Design Star: Hand-tied Bouquet


For the month of May, Kaylee Young demonstrates how she designs her hand-tied bridal bouquet, featuring flowers from Holex, that has a flowing round shape, filled with interesting textures and beautiful color. Kaylee places flowers at different depths to add dimension then finishes the bouquet by cutting the stems very short and adding some gorgeous silk ribbon.

Featured flowers: lilac, Fritillaria persica, Fritillaria meleagris, Dutch ranunculus, sweet peas, Cappucino roses, spirea, butterfly ranunculus.

Bouquet recipe:

  • 8 Stems spirea
  • 4 stems ranunculus
  • 4 stems butterfly ranunculus
  • 5 Cappuccino roses
  • 2 stems Fritillaria persica
  • 5 stems white sweet pea
  • 3 stems little Fritillaria meleagris
  • 3 stems double white tulip
  • 5 stems of foraged foliage

Note: the Japanese spirea is not available now, but we do have spirea sourced from Oregon. Butterfly ranunculus also went out of season.

AIFD2012: Grace Ormonde & Ian Prosser – Wedding Bouquets

One word, BOUQUETLICIOUS!  Yes, if I had to make up a word to describe Grace Ormonde and Ian Prosser’s part of the program that showed off amazing bouquet designs, that would be it.  We snapped close to 80 pictures for just the bouquets and below you will find a few of my faves.  Some of these pics do not give the proper justice that these floral design deserve, but a glimpse is worth it.  For real, if you have been debating on whether or not to attend an AIFD Symposium, I think you should go.  My brain was on overload the whole time and I felt so inspired when I came back home, and I don’t even design flowers as a career!

I know many designers participated in creating the bouquets for this program, and unfortunately I do not know who did what, but I can tell you who designed the composite bouquets.  Can you guess??? Yes, our 2012 Mayesh Design Star, Mandy Majerik AIFD, PFCI.  Gotta love the composites that she comes up with!!



So which is your favorite wedding bouquet?
