Mayesh Design Star: Cascading Bouquet
In her third & final Design Star video, Sue demonstrates how to create a cascade bouquet using sustainable mechanics, or without the use of tape, wire, or foam bouquet holders. She designs two different bouquets: a more modern, minimal take and a more traditional style cascade.
She begins by creating her simple, handheld armature using curly willow, but any flexible, branchy material will work. This armature is purely functional and structural and will disappear once the flowers have been added. The base of the bouquets is created using a hand tied spiraled bouquet, something that seems simple but takes a lot of practice. She even recommends taking a class or workshop on spiral bouquets (ahem, we have one right now!)
To add a little artfulness & whimsy, Sue shows us a few of her favorite sustainable techniques to add unique & interesting elements to her cascade bouquets. Watch the video below to discover all of her tips & tricks for the traditional cascade bouquet that is currently making a big comeback!
