Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Wedding season is in full swing! Yes, we’re still riding that royal wedding wave and we’re not ashamed (clearly!). The flowers had to be my favorite part of the royal wedding of Harry and Meghan. Those flower arches were absolutely dreamy outside of St. George’s Chapel. We loved the lush and overflowing greenery and the all-white color palette. Meghan’s bouquet, in contrast, was much more restrained. She held a very petite and lovely bouquet of flowers in an all-white color scheme. Though I tend to agree with the ‘more is more’ mantra, the simplicity of this bouquet is so stunning! We researched each flower in her bouquet in order to create a very similar paper replica. Did you know it’s tradition for royals to include a sprig of Myrtle in their bouquets? It represents love and started with the wedding of the eldest daughter of Prince Albert and Queen Victoria.

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!Rainbow Paper Flower Tablescape

Rose Parade Tablescape

DIY Rose Parade tablescape

Are you familiar with the Rose Parade? Every year my family would watch the Rose Parade in all its glory. Never mind the Rose Bowl which happens on the same day. Who needs football when you’ve got a magical festival of flowers? The floats have to be completely covered with flowers or natural materials like leaves, seeds, or bark. In addition to floats, there are marching bands, equestrian units, and a royal court. Guys, this is an American pastime! Naturally, we had to create a Rose Parade tablescape since we did one for the Macy’s Day Parade!

Rose Parade Tablescape

Gather your girlfriends together to make mini floats covered with brightly colored flowers! The floats line the center of an otherwise all-white tablescape in honor of the “White Suitors” aka: all the men and women who volunteer and make the parade possible wear crisp white uniforms. This is a classy occasion, folks! It’d be great as a New Year’s Eve dinner or a brunch on the day of.

FTD was kind enough to provide all the beautiful flowers (like this bouquet!)  to transform our floats with! So start prepping for the new year, because a Rose Parade Tablescape is the best way!

Get the full how-to for the Rose Parade Tablescape!
