One of my very favorite designs to create. I'm not sure if it's the fact I love to say "Biedermeier" in my best Arnold Shwarzenegger voice or that the bouquet looks like a delicious pastry.
Originating in Germany in the 1800's, the Biedermeire Bouquet is a round bouquet, created with concentric rings with one flower color in each layer.
Starting with the center flowers held in your hand, you twist and apply, twist and apply. You are making sure the stems are twisted as such that the bouquet can ultimately stand on it's own. At the same time, taking care to properly align the layers. Takes a bit of practice (and several broken stems) to master it, but it is well worth the time and patience to see it standing proudly as you present it "Look at my Biedermeire!"
Seriously though, doesn't it look like strawberry shortcake? Such a beautiful and fun bouquet to make. Try it some time and let me know how it goes! I'll try to make a video on the next one I create and post it, along with my Arnold impersonation.
Peace, love and flowers, y'all.
