Happy Thursday!

Today we are diving into Orchid Bouquets: How To Make Beautiful Bouquets With Cymbidium Orchids.

Cymbidium orchids are one of those blooms that demand to be the star of the show. They are the perfect choice for creating luxury style, contemporary, commercial designs. With a myriad of colours to choose from, an excellent vase life and an ability to thrive in a whole range of different environments, they come into their own when commercial luxury is the order of the day.

When you have a star bloom, it is important to structure your designs to show it off. Cymbidiums can be a little heavier than other blooms and perhaps cost a little more too, but with the right design they shine. Today I am sharing four different bouquet designs plus my personal tips to help you well on your way to basking in cymbidium glory.

 In this tutorial we’ll be covering:

  • Four different commercial designs

  • Structuring your bouquet with to showcase a feature flower

  • The spiral technique for contemporary, front-facing bouquets
