Bouquet Shapes: The Arm Sheaf

Oops. It's been a while since I started the 'bouquet shape' series. So to get back on track I am going to tell you about the Arm Sheaf. Arm Sheaf bouquets are usually long stem flowers that the bride can carry cradled in the nook of her arm. It can be extremely stylish by using just one variety of flower in a simple and neat manner, or it can be more elaborate and messy with more flowers and trailing bits spilling over the arm.
The most common flower used for an Arm Sheaf is the Arum or Calla Lily. It doesn't take many stems at all and gives such a stylish and contemporary appearance. Other long stem flowers that are suitable for this style of bouquet are roses, tulips, orchids, lillies, iris, heliconia, molucca balm, delphinium and gerberas.
The Arm Sheaf can also be held hanging downwards instead of across your arm, the same way as you would hold a teardrop style bouquet.
