Carmel Antique Garden Roses and Olive Foliage

From Living Fresh Studio: Select flowers that are used in other arrangements for your wedding for cohesion and a tied together look. For a mixed topper arrangement have a few larger focal flowers with smaller buds and fleurets and bits of greenery. Use pins to hold larger flowers in place, place other flowers directly on the cake loose and layer blooms on top of each other.

For greenery garland on cake tiers or at the base use short pieces and layer on top of each other to hide the end of the stems. Don't be afraid to push stems into the cake to keep the flower or greenery in place. Keep it simple, a few blooms with greenery is easy to place and looks amazing. For a showy and fully look use flowers that are fully open. Purchase loose flower stems and greenery from your florist.
