Paper Flowers for the Wedding Cake

Paper Flowers for the Wedding Cake


Posted on Mar 10, 2011

My cousin and I had originally talked about having paper flowers on the wedding cake.  We had talked about the cake looking something like this one and using paper flowers would be an inexpensive way to spruce up a plain cake. Their wedding cakes ended up looking like their wedding invitation and weren't plain at all! There was really no way for the wedding cake guru to fit my paper flowers on these extraordinary...

I made 14 paper flower boutonnieres for the wedding. My cousin had asked that his and his husband's be red since they were going to wear white tuxes.  The rest of the wedding party's were done in white to offset the festive colors we were wearing.   I used the same technique I did for the flowers in the paper wreath.  These flowers were to be more like lilies, so I cut the crepe paper into tear drop shapes....

One of the most challenging things I made for my cousin's wedding was this wreath.  It started as kind of an offhand thing that I thought would look pretty somewhere.  I was so in love with this paper flower wreath that I really wanted to make one for the wedding.

Zinnia Seed Wedding Favors


Posted on Mar 2, 2011

For my cousin's wedding, I made these Zinnia Seed wedding favors.  I used this Martha Stewart tutorial and it worked great!  I followed the directions exactly and had no trouble making these.   The only trouble was working with international rules and plants.  The original idea was to have tulip bulbs for favors.  This became quite the headache because I could easily get tulip bulbs in the states...
