A trail of coral and blush silk ribbons tied around the stems completes the luxe bouquet.

Here, coned leucadendron, white O’Hara garden roses, dahlias, snapdragons, protea, clematis, sweet huck, thistle, dusty miller, Italian ruscus and ti leaves form the perfect eclectic mix.

A copper-leaf farm table from Rudy’s Event Rentals in St. Paul completes the glamorous bohemian scene.
