I just made 2 bouquets for Mother's Day. I can't post pictures yet because we haven't developed the film. I know we're still in the dark ages with no digital camera.
I made a 12 regular sized bouquet with a 5 inch pot and a 12 mini bouquet with a 3 1/2 inch pot. I have an Otis Spunkemeyer plastic container that held frozen cookie dough and is slightly larger than the 5 inch pot. I placed some shelf liner on the bottom, put the pot in and placed tissue paper around it to hold it in place. I put the smaller bouquet in a rectangular shaped tupperware that was slightly larger than the pot with shelf liner underneath and the packs of sandwich picks and plastic picks on either side to hold it snugly. Then I put both containers in a large rubbermaid container-58 qt. with shelf liner underneath. (Can you tell that I don't want anything moving.)
I taped a basket bag over the entire rubbermaid container.
We put the container in the trunk and headed to church this morning. It's a 45 minute drive on highway and city streets. My husband thankfully is a good driver and both bouquets were fine when we got to church. I took the container in so it could sit in AC until church was over. We only had a minor problem on the way to mom's (15 min.) The trunk got too hot and 2 cupcakes had the icing slip off. I put the bouquets in the fridge and subbed 2 fresh ones that I brought.
They both turned out great and were a hit at our party.
