The flowers at your wedding can really set the stage if you let them. A perfectly planned centerpiece can make your reception look more romantic, classic or even whimsical. It all just depends on what you’re going for.
I’ve recently run across a group of flowers each with distinct personality. They’re always in season, come in any color you can imagine and can cost literally just pennies a piece. These flowers, made of either fabric or paper, are anything but ordinary. I love the color and style that come from each one.
You might be wondering who in the world would have fake flowers at their wedding- especially fake flowers that they made themselves! I know what you mean. Certainly these flowers can’t be considered a replacement for the naturally grown plants they were modeled after. That is, in fact, the exactly reason why I love them so much! These flowers are not trying to be real. You look at them and automatically know that they’re not the real thing- everyone knows there’s no such thing as a pin-striped rose after all! Instead of trying to be real, they try to bring in a specific style to a reception. And, quite frankly, they do it very well.
This flower collection can be found in the project section of marthastewart.com . Along with photos of all their amazing ideas, you’ll also find step by step instructions on how to create each flower yourself.
