Easy Wedding Garland Ideas
- Seeded Eucalyptus
- Silver Dollar Eucalytus (the runner is made up of 2 types of eucalyptus - any 2 would work fine)
- Baby Blue Eucalyptus (to place in bud vases along the garland)
- Roses (Esperance Used, but any variety of rose would work fine)
- Gypsophelia (Baby's Breath)
- Bud Vases to place along garland
- Candles to place along garland
Garlands can range from the very simple - as seen here - or more complex. This garland was made by cutting both the seeded eucalyptus and silver dollar eucalyptus into smaller segments and then overlapping these segments along the center of the table. Cut roses and baby's breath were then laid interspersed within the garland. Sprigs of baby blue eucalyptus were cut and placed in bud vases to accent the design down the table. Greenery garlands can easily be created and set up a day before the ceremony, but do not place the cut flowers into the garland until the day of the event. If your venue allows you to set up earlier than the day of the event, and you wish to add flowers earlier, you will need to place flowers in either a water tube or other water source that can be covered by the greens.
In getting your flowers ready for shipping, we prepare them for their journey with proper hydration methods. When the flowers arrive and they appear sleepy and thirsty it is absolutely NORMAL. Follow these simple steps to ensure your flowers have the proper care.
- When your boxes arrive, it is important to get your flowers in water as quickly as possible. Open your boxes and remove any protective packaging, such as foam or paper.
- Inspect your flowers.*
- Gather clean vases, buckets or containers for your bouquets. Ensure your vases, buckets or containers are very clean. We recommend rinsing them with warm water.
- Fill them with at least 3 inches of fresh, room temperature water
- Your flowers may or may not arrive with water tubes or sponges attached to the bouquet for hydration. If they do, gently remove them. Remove any plastic sleeves protecting the flowers.
- Holding the flowers tightly, using sharp flower shears, cut about an inch off of each stem.
- Once stems are cut you can choose to remove any rubber bands or leave them on as they may help the bouquet hold its shape.
- Place flowers in the prepared vases, buckets or containers.
- Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate, flowers may take up to 12 hours to properly hydrate. Periodically check the water levels. Flowers drink a lot of water when they first arrive and the water may need to be refilled.
- Keep flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts or extreme temperatures. Flowers should be stored in a cool dark area, until ready to use.
- Change water every 24 hours to keep flowers fresh.
