Wow thanks for all the lovely comments - I'm so relieved you like them! I like the idea of the beaded baby's breath, might have to experiment this weekend (although I think my boyfriend is getting a bit sick of the house looking like a florists!)

I think they look beautiful.

Maybe you could add a few pearls here an there, like in the center of the hydrangea flowers.  It might give it a little sparkle, or make it look like dew!  Otherwise, they are very beautiful!

I love them exactly as they are, but if you do want a touch of sparkle you can use crystals (beads or flat backs) in the centres of the flowers.

These are absolutely beautiful! You've done an amazing job. They look so realistic. If you wanted to add something else to the bouquet, have you thought about long-ish stemmed feathers (in cream or white)? They could add something extra, if you wanted.

Some girls were just born with glitter in their veins.

OH MY GOODNESS!!!  You *just* posted my bouquet!  I plan too in using coffee filter roses.  And you posted yours in *exactly* the colors I want!!!!  I haven't made mine yet, (just in my mind) but now I KNOW it will look gorgeous!!!  As long as mine turns out like yours!  LOL!
(I'm sure there will be variation, as it is with lovely handmade goodness, but this is exactly what I have in my head, and I agree with everyone else... GORGEOUS!)
I will post mine when it's done!  I can't wait till the wedding!  I'm trying to decide on bridesmaid dress colors.  I know for my color scheme I was originally thinking champagne, but when I saw a similar "live" bouquet in these colors, I've been wondering if dusty rose, or pale green, could work.  What are your bridesmaid dresses going to be in?

These look amazing.

I've had coffee filters for over a year with the intention of trying to make these roses but I think it'll be too hard for me but you've done a fantastic job.

Life's a garden.  Dig it.

Beautiful!!  Your roses turned out so lovely.  I recently finished making 100+ for my wedding, so I know how much work they are!  You did a great job. Smiley

Craftster needs you!

I love my husband!
