  • Project by Janie Miller Photos by Tori Watson of Marvelous Things Photography     Here we'll show you how to create beautiful wedding bouquets using just one type of floral! We'll start with a dusty miller bouquet, which is perfect for a winter or holiday wedding. Then we'll arrange a bouquet of fresh lavender, which is not only beautiful but smells amazing and dries out perfectly, making it a lovely keepsake for a bride and her bridesmaids. All you need is a pretty ribbon to wrap the handles and you have the perfect bouquet.   Dusty Miller Bouquet     Ingredients: Dusty Miller (I used one bunch) Ribbon Scissors Floral Pins Floral Tape   How To:   Separate the stem of the dusty miller. Now begin designing the bouquet by simply placing the stems in your hand to form the bouquet. You can make it as full as you like.      Tape the stems together.     Wrap the stems with your choice of ribbon and add a pearl pin.     There you have it!!   Fresh Lavender Bouquet     Ingredients: 1 Bundle of Fresh Lavender Ribbon Scissors Floral Pins

    How To:    The wonderful thing about fresh lavender is that it is perfectly bundled with a rubber band when you purchase it. For me, there's no need to take it apart. I love the way the stems are arranged in the bundle, if you want, you can take the bundle apart and rearrange the bouquet.         Wrap the bouquet handle with your favorite ribbon and secure it with the pearl pin.     There you have it!

    3. Press the stamp evenly onto the top of the lid.

    4. Then, pour embossing powder over the stamped area.

    5. Remove the excess embossing powder and set the design with a heat gun.

    These cute, easy beverage accoutrements are perfect for cocktail hour at your wedding, bridal shower, dinner parties...the list goes on!

    Ingredients:

    Edible Pansies (I purchased these from Terrain) Plastic Food Tray (I purchased this one from Displays2Go) Mini Ice Tray 6 Flat-Bottom Plastic Cups Designer Rocks or coins to fill the cups Beverage/Cocktail

    How To: 

    The night before the event, fill the ice trays with water and place 2-3 pansies on top and place in the freezer.

    Next, place the plastic cups on the tray. I placed three on each side and place the rocks/coins in the cups to weigh them down. 

    Fill the tray with water until it’s about ½ inch deep. Note: if you are using water tap water, you should pre-boil it to keep the water from being cloudy. I used bottled water to avoid having to boil the water.

    Next, place the pansies in the water and space them out to your liking.

    Place in the freezer overnight. When ready to use the pansy tray, remove the tray from the freezer and remove the rock/coins from the plastic cups. Pour a little hot water in the cup to remove it from the tray. Next, place the prepared drinks with the pansy ice cubes on the tray and you are ready to serve. I added a few fresh pansies to the tray as well.

    There you have it!

    Photography By: Pictilio   This 3-D heart bunting is pretty and a great project to incorporate some handmade charm into your wedding. Hang between rows of seats, behind a dessert table, vertically to stage the ceremony, or around the head table as accent décor.     For a bunting of good length, purchase a heart punch from your local craft store. The small investment (about $10) will save your wrists from cutting hundreds of hearts out! You will also need colored craft paper, glue, and string.     Stamp out hearts for the length of your bunting. Each section of the bunting will use two hearts.     Once the hearts are punched, cut a length of thin string and begin gluing on the hearts. Lay one heart down (backside up). Center a small line of glue, then quickly layer the string on top and another heart (backside down). Measure a few inches and continue the process.     Once all the hearts are laid and dried, fold the top and bottom hearts away from one another for a pretty 3D effect.     Run the lengths of garland around cardboard dividers and tape in place as you go. This will make it easier to transport without getting tangled.

  • Photos By: Mary Swenson     A super-affordable (and quite charming) alternative to a large, single centerpiece is a cluster of small containers in the center of your table. For this project, we use plain glass juice glasses, but mini vases and even votive holders can have the same effect. Simply cover the container with decorative paper or fabric, and fill them each with inexpensive flowers, and you've got a pretty centerpiece in no time. Here are some ideas to get you started!     Cheesecloth is available in most grocery stores, and is a very budget-friendly fabric that's perfect to use for your wedding - it's white, soft, and gauzy, and looks so pretty wrapped around our glasses! White affords you the ability to pair it with any color or colors, and we thought that cheery yellow and white tulips would be a happy match.     Wrap patterned fabric around your vessels and pair it with flowers in a contrasting color for a sophisticated look for your table. Even everyday, grocery-store bought flowers like mums look gorgeous when they're clustered tightly with flowers of a similar hue.     If you're using three or more mini-containers, covering each one in a variety of shades from the same color family creates a fabulous look for your table. We kept our flowers white with this arrangement so that our beautiful color palette could take center stage.     Scrapbook paper comes in an endless variety of prints and patterns; choose your favorite complimentary sheets and combine them for a funky, modern look. Fill them with flowers that mimic the colors on the paper.     These centerpiece containers can do double-duty as favors or even table numbers; here, we covered our glasses in kraft paper and used adhesive letters to spell out the table number.

    By: Danyelle Mathews   Your wedding is a special day for you and your closest friends. Why not put a bit of extra thought into how you ask your besties to be your bridesmaids?     Materials: wool felt small embroidery hoop thread  needle pencil scissors glue gun glue stick

    Step One Place the felt into the embroidery hoop and begin stitching. You can freehand the lettering, just use a lightly colored pencil to write out your message onto the felt. The thread will cover it when you're finished.     Step Two Tie off any loose thread ends on the back     Step Three Trim the felt, leaving about 1/2" around the diameter of the embroidery hoop.     Step Four Using your glue gun, secure the excess felt to the inside of the hoop.       Step Five Package up the completed project in a box with a simple "will you..." tag attached to the front.     Not only will your friends appreciate your thoughtfulness, they'll treasure the special handmade memento.
