I am a MASSIVE fan of Paper Flowers.

I love that they can be created by anyone,
at any time of year
and any place on Earth.

Roses in the middle of winter?
No probs!
Chrysanthemums in summer?
Absolutely!
Tropical orchids for a snowy winter wedding?
Can do!
Succulents and eucalyptus for equatorial nuptials?
Totes!

But even more wonderfully,
if you have a turquoise or plum or tangerine colour theme,
but really want to have peonies in your floral displays,
then just make them.

Oh the possibilities!

I will make the effort to post some of my own Paper Flower tutorials here soon
(I’m trying to learn how to make & post a video),
but for now,
let me introduce you to Lia Griffiths.

Lia is one of my all-time-favourite paper crafters.
I genuinely adore her work and believe that she is one of
the most generous Craft Bloggers out in the Interweb.

I’m a bit of a Pinterest addict.

I guess you can’t be a bride or be involved in the Wedding Industry
and not be totally in love with Pinterest.

It’s AWESOME!!!

My current little dabble into the wonderful world that is Pinterest,
brought into the divine and imaginative world of Bridal Bouquets.

There is so much variety and colour and originality.
Succulents, fruit, broaches, herbs, vines, vegetables and so much more.

.

Here is an example of just four amazing Pinterest Boards highlighting Bridal Bouquets.

1.  Pretty Wedding Bouquets by Coast To Country Weddings
2.  Wedding Bouquets by The Knot
3.  Bouquets by Janet Siemsen
4.  Bouquets by Julianne Smith

And here is my own meagre board.
I have to admit, I’m pretty fussy about what I ‘pin’ onto it.

All my ‘pins’ are of bouquets
that I would be happy to carry as I walk down the aisle.
