Crochet Floral Bouquet

I am so excited about how this crochet floral bouquet turned out.  I had the idea and then struggled to find any photos online that looked anything like my idea in my head.   I just forged ahead, crocheting various flowers and trusting between my husband and I that we would come up with a great end result.  And we did!!  

It was intended to be for Mother's Day, but I did not realize how long it would take to get fully created.   She received it over a week late, which is why there was a delay in posting online.    People were wondering why I was creating so many flowers....

First, I started with the flowers.

Peony, Spring Rose, Large Purple/Pink Flower, Marigold, Daffodil and Carnation.



And here is the final result:










My mom has been recently decorating her office area with her favorite color - turquoise and blue.  I am hoping this fits right in and brightens her day!
