Summer bouquets

 Summer: Can you remember if we had one last year? Here to remind us all of some sun are some fabulous summer bouquets. All again loved by their respective brides, and all pink! There are other colours available but these all jumped out at me from my photos as typical sunny bouquets.
Above: A mix of country garden just picked blooms. Included are roses, freesia, September flowers, Ammi, Astrantia, and stocks with ferns and grasses.
 A bridesmaids bouquet of Sweet Williams, Freesia, Stallion Chrysants and germini. I know some of these flowers will be frowned upon by some but they do create a gorgeous small budget friendly bouquet.
 A hand tie neat posy of roses, bouvardia and eustoma with eucalyptus foliage.

 Another summer mix bouquet. Freesia, Roses, Stocks, Sweet peas, bupleurum and ruscus foliage.
These roses are gorgeous. Pink Colombian garden roses, very full and sweetly scented make for a very simple yet very striking bouquet.

I don't get to create many shower bouquets as you have all gone modern with the hand-ties but this is one of my personal favourites. White eustoma makes up the 'shower' with white roses and pink sweet peas filling the 'posy' part. Add in lots of wispy bear grass to make a stunning design.
