This white daisy cascade bouquet is close to being finished.  But wait . . . don't waste any flowers.  Use some of the smaller "bud like" heads.  Not all the flowers have to be wide open.  A contrast in size gives a little more visual interest.

I'm still tucking some in the sides, so that a lateral view is just as pretty as a frontal view is.

I see an opening at the very top, in between the two highest flowers.

Zip!  In quickly goes another flower bud, longer than the flowers in the center.

Tucking it in a little deeper and facing the flower head upwards.

I see more holes that need to be filled with flowers.

I'm even gently pulling the flower heads apart, so I can insert another bud deeper into the design.

I buried this bud deeply into the greens.  This helps give more depth perception.  Keep in mind that these smaller flowers could be replaced with a secondary flower, such as sweetheart roses!

This bridal bouquet is taking shape . . . the overall design takes less time than you think!

Here's a view from the right side, so you can see that the design has a rounded look - not flattened.

Here's a view from the left side.  Such a simple design with timeless flowers - economical - but oh, so pretty!

I'm going to show you an old trick for chrysanthemums.  They have a tougher stem than is rather hollow.

You can use your discarded stems to create a mock hand tied look, if you want to conceal the handle of your bouquet holder.

There are also times you need that flower to just be a "little bit longer".  Different varieties of chrysanthemums sometimes have very short laterals.

Take a discarded chrysanthemum stem and strip all the leaves off and clean off the bumpy places where the flowers were cut off.  Cut your attached stem off at an angle with a sharp knife.

Carefully slid the angled stem down INTO the hollow stem of the cleaned stem.

You now have a longer flower stem that can be inserted upward into the foam and it will draw water down and feed that flower head!

The lengthened stem I just created is the lowest one showing on the cascade below.

This is just a good trick to remember if you just HAVE to have one more longer bloom at the bottom of your cascade!
