Nautical-ish Bouquets

This past weekend I threw a nautical themed bachelorette party in Chicago for my friend Debbie. I'm still recuperating from planning and throwing the party and I'm absolutely still in the nautical themed mode, so I thought that I would share these adorable nautical-ish bouquets.
When I think of a "nautical" bouquet, it's always white. Then, its accented with green to provide a preppy nautical look or accented with a red {see below!} to provide the tried and true nautical color scheme. Both are gorgeous, in my opinion.

The striped wrap is just the icing on the cake, if you will, for these bouquets. And, it's what brings the nautical flare to these pieces.
I just had to sneak a picture in of the magenta {red} and white bouquet. Isn't it stunning!?
Janie from The Brides Cafe is the designer behind Janie Medley Flora Design and is consistently creating the most delightful bouquets which, I am sure, are even more beautiful in person!
p.s. The white bouquet contains Peonies, Scabiosa, Hypericum Berries and Scented Geranium Leaves. The red and white bouquet below contains Peonies, Dahlias {my favorite!}, Seeded Eucalyptus and Scented Geranium Leaves.
