April Showers bring May flowers… so I guess you can say we’re jumping the gun a little bit over here! This Rainbow Paper Flower Tablescape is the perfect way to welcome in Spring! It also involves two of our favorite things: rainbows and flowers. We created layered 2-D paper flowers in different shades of pink, orange, yellow, blue, and purple to create a rainbow of flowers down the center of the table. Paper, wire, and floral foam and then only materials you need to make this stunner. It would be perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch, a spring bridal or baby shower, or a rainbow themed birthday party!

We set our Rainbow Paper Flower Tablescape with coordinating paper plates, cups, napkins, and even straws to really send home the rainbow theme! You can find a variety of colors at your local craft store. Pro tip: It always pays off to have a good supply of paper goods on hand.

- Cut out all the flowers provided in the template in each different color paper.
- Layer the flowers, overlapping colors in similar families and gluing them together with a dab of hot glue.
- Once you have all your completed blooms, glue a piece of floral wire onto the back of each flower. Cut the wires to various lengths
- Arrange 5 foam blocks down the length of the table, setting them side by side.
- Stick your floral stems into the blocks, filling each block with one of the 5 shades of flowers, varying the heights of the blossoms.
- Using the additional paper, cut pieces of paper to cover the exposed sides of the foam blocks and secure with tape.
- Cut small scraps of colored paper with the remaining paper to cover the tops of the foam blocks
