Place a whole stem of baby's breath between the lambs ear.
Place the second stem of baby's breath on top of the last and on a diagonal, again notice where I am holding it and how far up or down it is in comparison to the other two stems.
Choose your favourite and biggest bloom and place it low and at the front.
Next take another rose and thread it through the middle of the stems and have the head of your flower higher up this time.
Add two more roses to the sides of the bouquet and in between the first two creating an imperfect square shape with the roses.
Finally, add the Queen Anne's lace to the middle of the bouquet and the rose flower bud to the back level with the (bridging the gap between the two lambs ear stems). Add the green leaves, 2 at the right-hand and 1 at the back.
