This lovely floral wall makes perfect décor for a wedding reception, bridal shower, dinner parties — you name it!
- 4 Bunches of Carnations (I used 4 different color palettes)
- Washi Tape
Note: Carnations are “hardy” flowers. They do quite well out of water. If you are going to have your carnation wall outside (and if it is a warm day), I would fill a spray bottle with water and mist the carnations.
Step One: Purchase the carnations a couple of days before the event. Once you get them home, give the stems a trim with the floral scissors and place them in a bucket of cool water.
On the day of the event, cut the stems of the carnations. (There are 25 carnations in a pack, so depending on how full or how large you want the flower wall to be, use your judgment on how many you need to use).
Step Two: Cut a strip of the washi tape and secure the carnation to the wall. Place the carnations on the wall in whatever pattern you desire.
Step Three: I used some of the leftover stems and placed them in bud vases and I cut the blooms off the stems to place around the vases!
