This Ol’ Heart of Pine: A Winter Wedding Bouquet How-To

It’s no secret we love weddings here at ModCloth. Add nature and the whimsy of winter to our love list and you’ve got the inspiration for our next bouquet how-to!

In this bouquet, cedar and juniper branches treat your nose to the sweet scents of a coniferous forest. Rich jewel tones and earthy hues, like emerald, ruby, tawny, and sage make for an enchanting winter palette. Dried plants, tree clippings, and feathers are at once rustic and elegant. The best part? By using dried flora, this bouquet will last as long as your love. 


What You’ll Need

Berry-red foxtails
White stardust baby’s breath
Spiral eucalyptus
Pheasant feathers
Burlap ribbon

Step One 

20161201_165692_72016Start with your large pine branches and spiral eucalyptus. The flat, yet full, cedar branches and tall, sturdy spiral eucalyptus provide the perfect support for your bouquet-to-be. 

Step Two

20161201_165692_72021Rich red flowers or plants, such as berry-dyed foxtail, offer a striking contrast atop the cool tones of your leafy base.

Step Three 

20161201_165692_72022Next, add shorter clusters of juniper branches to fill out the bottom of your bouquet. The dusty blue berries bring the wintry teal hues of the cedar and eucalyptus into the foreground of your display.

Step Four

Step Five 

20161201_165692_72033Next, tie your arrangement together with the ribbon. A pale sage burlap ribbon is ideal for its neutral, earthy hue and natural material. Note: Because this bouquet is meant to be cradled instead of held, the ribbon can be simply knotted together instead of pinned into place. 

Step Six 

20161201_165692_72040For the finishing touches, accent your arrangement with a few pheasant feathers. Their tan and brown hues and striped pattern provide an eye-catching contrast, while their long, narrow shape mirror the tall foxtails and eucalyptus. A stunning display of nature, perfect for the rustic winter wedding of your dreams.

About Jordyn

When she's not yell-singing how she feels à la Linda Belcher, you can catch Jordyn obsessing over birds, bolo ties, and anything Sailor Moon. At her chillest, she’s watching David Attenborough documentaries or reorganizing her plants and tchotchkes for the 57th time.
