FiftyFlowers.com sent us the beautiful flowers for this Sunflower Wreath tutorial. The blooms were cut and shipped directly to our doorstep from the farm where they grow and we were amazed at just how beautiful the flowers were when they arrived.
You may have heard of FiftyFlowers or if you’re like me living under a rock…you haven’t. They are wholesale flowers and have every kind of flower you are looking for for your event. I received the Blooming Garden Spring Combo Pack that has blue, yellow and white flowers to create your centerpieces, bouquets, corsages or whatever you are making. The flower specialists will help you plan floral arrangements for your party, event, or crafts.
I chose to make a Sunflower Wreath which can also be used as a centerpiece.
Once you order the flowers, they call you to verify your order. Then you receive another text letting you know when they will shipping. It is best to have your flowers delivered approximately 3 days before your event. They are shipped directly to you from farms around the globe. It takes about that long for them to come alive and open up.
You will receive a text once they are delivered and thankfully they do because we have been in upper 90’s everyday and the delivery driver never rang the doorbell. When I received the text I went out to check and sure enough, they were sitting on my front porch.
I followed the directions they sent by email on how to care for the flowers once they arrived. I cut the zip ties that were holding them in place, cut about a half inch off and placed each different flower in their own vase of water.
I think I was a little stunned when they arrived because I wasn’t expecting that many gorgeous flowers.
Making the Sunflower Wreath is easy. I used a wire wreath form with the pipe cleaners attached.
I started with Myrtle greens and placed them on the outside ring.
I continued by alternating Creamy White Stock and Blue Delphinium.
On the inside ring, I placed the Queen Anne’s Lace and the Sunflowers.
If some of the flowers stick out too far, you can use some floral wire to hold them in place. I twisted a piece of wire and attached it to the back in order to hang it.
You can use these to hang on the entrance to the wedding reception or use them as centerpieces on the head table or all the tables. The possibilities are endless!
I also created a corsage for the groomsmen.
