Large Yellow, Gray and White Victorian Detailed Beaded Cascading Bridal Bouquet
Gorgeous in pale yellow and light gray, the large cascading bouquet will absolutely delight you making you feel like a queen with its soft textures and amazing details. This bouquet features faux silk flowers of yellow and white Wisteria, creamy white orchids, pale yellow large real touch Calla Lilies, faux gray and yellow roses, a light gray dahlia, white open roses, fluffy light yellow flower sprays, soft velvet gray Lamb's Ear, and super soft light gray velvet Eucalyptus leaves. Dripping in Victorian styling and extra details include a white pearl and clear crystal silver brooch, white pearl lace appliques on some of the orchid petals, extra pearl and crystal rhinestone details in the bouquet with an exquisite beaded back and handle.
The bottom of the bouquet is outlined in 5 inch hand sewn double sided light gray bridal satin ruffle. The padded handle is covered with the same light gray satin fabric and covered with pale yellow and white sequined appliques, enhanced with light gray embroidered appliques to which have been added crystals and pearls by Swarovski along with Czech glass 3mm melon beads and glass seed beads. The beaded appliques actually travel up into the satin ruffle above it in several places and the gray leaves resemble feathers and move as you will move. It is almost magical. A matching light gray satin flower enhances the end of the handle and the bottom is trimmed in pale yellow organza rosette trim with white pearls.
Bridal double sided satin ribbons in white and pale yellow satin create a bow that cascades just beneath the front of the bouquet behind the orchids. The bow has been enhanced with a stand of white pearls and the ribbon ends are finished with beaded fringe and pale yellow organza rosette trim with some white pearls in the center of every other rosette. The widest 2.5 inch white ribbon is finished with white pearl and crystal AB long beaded 4 inch fringe topped with pale yellow and light gray quality acrylic 3 inch beaded fringe. The ends of the 1.25 inch pale yellow ribbons are enhanced with the light gray and pale yellow 3 inch beaded fringe, then topped with a white pearl scalloped beaded fringe that has a scalloped edge of clear aurora borealis glass seed beads. This same scalloped white pearl trim finishes the ends of the 1 inch white satin ribbon ends as well. All ribbon ends are also finished with a pale yellow and white pearl organza rosette trim.
This bouquet is one of the more elaborate ones I have ever made. Finished size is 13 inches wide and deep and 23 inches long. It weighs about 1.75 pounds by itself so it is not heavy and the handle has been padded for extra comfort and is 5 inches long for stability with crystals placed in areas that make it comfortable to hold. Additional bouquets and boutonnieres, corsages and hair accessories will be coming soon.
Yellow and gray are the 2021 Pantone colors of the year. he Ultimate Gray represents the gray the world is coming out of 2020. The Illuminating yellow represents the light the world is going into. They are healing and soothing colors with the brightness and warmth of a new dawn. I love the color combination and hope that you do too. I have truly enjoyed creating my new Yellow and Gray Collection. Stay tuned for more pieces.
