Add the medium roses and smaller flowers, baby's breath and sweetheart roses, between the other flowers, filling in any gaps. Try to keep it even and symmetrical. Lastly, add in some greenery, like eucalyptus.

When you’ve got everything in place, wrap the entire bouquet again, very tightly, in floral tape.  Finish your bouquet by covering the tape with a beautiful ribbon.  Secure the ribbon to the stems with pearl headed pins.
