A dear friend asked me to do up 3 different bouquets for the mother figures in her family.
The creative freedom to do whatever I wanted felt so good and I had time to mix up my makes and try my hand at arranging without the pressure of conforming to any particular style.
That said, when I wrap bouquets, I aim for the chic looking Korean ones as they make use of several sheets and give a really minimalist effect.
Wrapped a number to date and I've had plenty of failed attempts. I even finished wrapping one and took it all off the next day because I simply wasn't satisfied with how it looked. The paper I had was too flimsy and looked too crumpled, instead of the structured look I was going for.
But I delivered the bouquets today and can say that my heart is content. Reluctant to pass them onto someone else, but content with how they look and bring joy not just to myself, but to the recipients (who seem equally reluctant to give them away).

Love them all.
