If you hopped over after visiting Rachelle at My Hubbard Home, Welcome! The first time I created fresh citrus and herb bouquets was several years ago when Dear Firstborn graduated from college. We served mimosas at her party, so I used oranges to create these mini bouquets.

Since then, I've always wanted to make the bouquets using lemons. Since we're approaching spring, now is the perfect time! 

Here's what you'll need: 

Fresh flowers, herb sprigs, and floral moss

You can choose to assemble your lemon bouquet upright or on its side. For upright bouquets, begin by cutting off just the end of the lemon so it will stand and not wobble. Next, cut a small hole in the top (or side) of the lemon and insert a mini floral tube filled with water. Last, add fresh flowers, herb sprigs, and moss as desired. Voila--a fresh, fragrant mini citrus herb bouquet!
