your flowers look great!!!!! I haven't starting working on my flowers yet, but when I did my bridesmaids I used a twist tie to hold the flowers tight at the top the shaped them making round as possible.
Then I tape the middle of the stems together since some of the stems were not the same lenght, my Mom found me some Styrofoams from her bag of arts & crafts tricks for me put the flower stems in so all the flowers would have them same fullness at the bottom ,then I just wrapped the styrofoam with ribbon. I hope this helps... Happy DIYing

I'm using wooden stakes and using floral tape to tape on the blooms at the top, so the problem arises with the stakes not being flexible. Going to head to Michael's (they know me by my first name now, hahaha) to see about getting some small styrofoam to put at the top to space out the flowers to make the round shape bigger.
The good news is that I LOVE the colors, and that it's turning out exactly how I want there. AND the smaller shape here is going to work well for the bridesmaids bouquets I'll make (which will just be the white and green flowers). I'm going to put some pearls and swav. crystals inside some of the blooms and do a ribbon wrap at the bottom.
Wish me luck!! Hope I can solve this today ---- been wanting to check this off my list for ages!!!
