Flowers and weddings go hand in hand—and there’s plenty of ways to incorporate blooms into your decor beyond bouquets and centerpieces. These fresh floral napkin rings will help guests find their seats at your reception by doubling as place cards!

Materials: Steel rings, scissors, floral tape, fresh flowers (we used spray roses, solidago, billy balls, aster, and greenery), string or twine, and craft glue.

Step 1: Prep your flowers by removing any excess leaves from the stem. Cut the stems down to 1 to 2 inches. Gently remove any wilting petals from the spray roses as well.

DIY: Washi Tape Favor Ties

These easy-to-make ties will leave your wedding favors feeling fresh and bright! To make these taped favor ties you will need a bright, bold pattern of washi tape, thin floral wire, and construction paper.


1. For the easiest assembly line production, start by completely covering one side of your construction paper in washi tape. Cut a 1.5″ in diameter hexagon x4 for each wedding favor you plan to have.

2. Cut a 5″ length of thin floral wire. Use glue to attach two of the hexagon endings to each tie with the wire in the middle. (Think of it like making a sandwich—the hexagon pieces are the bread slices, and the glue and the wire goes in between. Make sure you stack the hexagon pieces with the washi side facing out!)

3. Tie around your favor bags for a fun, graphic touch!
