Tea Cup Flower Arrangements

These darling, candy-striped flower arrangements could be used as favors for a bridal shower or at a bridesmaid's luncheon. We filled vintage teacups with yellow and pink roses and then placed a cheery flag in each arrangement! The best part is that the tea cups can be used forever after the flowers fade away. 


 


You will need:


 -Old tea cups (we found ours at a thrift store for less than $5)


-2 small roses, 1 large rose, 1 dahlia bud, 1 stem of sedum per arrangement


-Cardstock


-Calligraphy pen


-Long toothpicks


Instructions


1. Fill tea cups with cold water.


2. Cut stems of roses about 1 inch short and placed them in the teacup.


3. Fill in the space between the roses with sedum and then added a dahlia bud poking up out of the side.


4. Cut a piece of cardstock about 1.5 inches wide and 8 inches long.


5. Fold the cardstock in half and cut a v in the end so it looks like a ribbon.


6. Tape a long toothpick to the inside of the flag and then wrote in a calligraphy pen on each flag.


7. Display the teacups at the entrance to your event. We chose a candy-striped cotton to echo the colors of the teacups and roses.
