Old, New, Borrowed, Blue: A series.
Created by: Abbey Fowler-Syd Design
For the bride, bridesmaids or flower girl, you need floral bouquets. If you cannot find an organic or locally grown flower supplier, I recommend using flowers made from 100% PCW paper. With a little advance planning, your stationer can fashion custom bouquets for you that match your wedding stationery and also lasts forever. The flower girl bouquet shown here was made with Neenah's ENVIRONMENT PC100 White, ENVIRONMENT Green Tea, CLASSIC CREST Welsh Blue and Windsor Blue.
Supplies from The Paper Mill Store .com:
- Regular pearl head pins
- Floral wire, very thin
- Strong glue for metal materials
- Styrofoam cone or cylinderColorbox Ink
For the flower shapes, I use flower punches in various sizes & shapes then layer them by different sizes & colors. Using the pins, I poke a hole in the middle of each flower set and wrap the floral wire around the sharp end of the pin and gluing it to secure it in place. Once dry, I stick the other ends of the floral wire into the Styrofoam cone base, which is then wrapped in a decorative ribbon.
The solutions to any successful wedding are in the details. It's important to plan ahead. Your biggest day can become not only a celebration of the beginning of a life long marriage, but also a commemoration of a healthier future through sustainable living. Your guests will leave with memories of a love-filled day, but also a wedding that reminded them to love the earth and to cherish the occasion with a wonderful souvenir. Good Luck!
