Materials Overview

You don't need much to arrange flowers is it's really easy? Actually, so clippers, which you can get for ten dollars at the hardware store it's they make them very expensive too, but you can just get a pair of clippers. You won't want to use scissors for everything because you'll see a lot of things have very woody stems here, so this wouldn't it would kill yourself to try to, like, try to do this right? So which is probably going to do it now for me, even though he's a really sharp we just got so you want some shears really cheap this's wire cutter? Because if you use your shears or clippers to cut, why where it will, but it will wear them down a lot quicker and you don't want to do that. So, um so wire cutters, this's the wire. What age is this? So that gauge is about a twenty two gauge wire. They come in all different gauges and the bigger the wire, the smaller the number. So a twelve gauge wire is going to be a lot thicker than a twenty two gauge wire, so we want to use something t...

hat's, pretty universal toe go into roses and things, but also not be too rigid for this, yeah, some of the really thick wire you can't really bend with your bare hands it's so make sure it's something that you can easily bend for what we're using it for here today as well if you're doing big huge installations you'll probably need some thicker wire but not for this and we have two types of floral tape here so this is the standards flower tape I'm sure you've seen this I didn't realize that so first so this is you guys probably have but I didn't when I first started this company that you actually have to stretch it to get it to work that's what makes it sticky I couldn't figure out why it wasn't sticking so that's why on day this is waterproof floral tapes so I think we're going to use this for the boat near today in this for the bouquet exactly get awesome and then blue dots glued huh? How did we not think of this? They're like the most amazing things ever ray and they didn't pay me to say that but so he's glued up a lot for just about everything so it's always great to have a zillion of those around and then this is something that's really important to not forget is that your pins? I can't say how many times I'm going to deliver a boot nears and then forgot the pins and had to try to find someplace in that town where however just try to find junior open so, and a little trick, which will tell you to do two pins. So you always see those pictures, probably like my mic issues, you know that have created, but where they're like, falling over, you know, that's, because there's not to pin so two pins is really ideal, and then ribbon. So whatever color ribbon you like, way a lot of ivory for weddings. Of course, we like it a little bit deeper colors, and since this is the pantone color of the year, we thought we should use that as well on dh, then flowers. When you talked about sourcing that and that's all you need for this it's pretty oh more ribbon for the boot near just different types of different types of ribbon and that's it.
