Jennifer Reed, Floral Designer and owner of Jennifer Designs Events, joins PHS’s “Grow Together” series to show everyone how to make a stunning bouquet by hand. As background, Jennifer was the floral designer for the new “Bloomin’ Brunch” at the 2020 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show.

Jennifer encourages gardeners to use flowers from local flower farmers or growing your own flowers to make beautiful bouquets at home. These bouquets can be used as a bridal bouquet, as a unique floral gift for someone, or as a beautiful display in a vase.

Create Your Own Bouquet

If you’d like to replicate Jennifer’s bouquet from the video, the list of flowers used are below:

  • Buxus sp. (Boxwood)
