For our first design, we took bear grass and weaved the grass into a ring. Then we took tulips and created either a bouquet or put the piece in a small container. I added some Oasis Diamond Wire for some sparkle and this is what I came up with:
A little note on tulips: they are funny flowers that keep growing even after they are cut. If you ask for tulips in an arrangement, be aware that they typically last 3-5 days and if they are in a warm area they are likely to die sooner. If you want a long lasting bouquet to send to people, don't ask for tulips! However, in the Language of Flowers, tulips are very romantic flowers. Here's a list of tulip colors and what they mean:
Pink Tulips- Caring
Purple Tulips- Royalty
Red Tulips- A declaration of love
White Tulips- Forgiveness
Yellow Tulips- Hopelessly in love
