Quite possibly the largest bouquet we have ever featured, Butterfly Petals created this lovely bougainvillea bouquet with just three ingredients! Learn more about the recipe for this behemoth bouquet below!
succulents, bougainvillea and paper flowers From Butterfly Petals This bouquet proved a challenge. I knew I wanted to use the giant succulent; however, it was huge and heavy and I soon had to reinforce the stem with little piece of wood to provide a handle.
Then I knew the scale would be off if I tried to tuck a few flowers around it so I grabbed the entire potted bougainvillea bush and turned it into a massive/over-the-top cascade bouquet. I uprooted the entire plant and cleaned the stem of dirt and soil before attaching it to my giant succulent and wrapping in ribbon.
The paper flowers were the last thing added. (Find a step by step tutorial on how paper dahlias here) The bouquet was heavy and the model was so tiny but I loved the end result.
