You guys took to the Flickr Pool this week armed with photos of your bouquets and I'm LOVING it. So we're showing a few of those, plus some bonus socks, engagement rings, and save-the-dates. The lovely paper flower bouquet above from Andrea took “all of Firefly and a few replays of Grey's Anatomy.” Well worth the effort!

Yes! Someone else measures time for doing wedding stuff by seasons of TV shows!
I’m having a dilemma with my paper flowers. What do I do about the empty spaces between the flowers? I have 7 large paper flowers arranged together…but because of their size there are gaps around the flowers that let you see in to the green “stems”. Should I just leave it plain, add some kind of filler (if so, what?) or put something inside the bouquet to disquise the stems a little? Thoughts?
You can always make smaller flowers to fill in those gaps… or grab live fillers like baby’s breath or fern fronds at Trader Joe’s or Costco on the day of (or day before).
Does Andrea have a tutorial or source for that AHH-mazing bouquet? Pretty please??? Love it and want to recreate it!
I second that. I would gladly spend a night or 2 making something this beautiful.
Here’s a tutorial for very similar paper flowers: http://jonesdesigncompany.com/flowers/rolled-paper-flowers-tutorial/
That’s the tutorial I used! I experimented and found that I preferred a more uniform look, so I kept my spirals smooth instead of bumpy. Thank you all so much for the lovely comments!
I used the same one for our centrepieces- out of sheet music! Awesome tutorial, isn’t it! Here they are: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/6930234757/in/set-72157629450056777
PS- LOVE your bouquet!
I feel it’s worth sharing this shot that shows all the bridesminions (sans socks) because of reasons*.
*And by reasons I mean, making Ariel squee over the tattoos…
