Wedding flowers

When it comes to wedding flowers, fresh flowers are always great – from the way they feel to the way they smell. But I’ve always felt guilty when a ton of fresh flowers have to be thrown away or left to wither after a huge event. And it’s always sad to see flowers die.

For our wedding, my fiancé and I decided to use synthetic flowers for the table on stage for the signing of the register. We wanted to keep the same flowers in our new home as a nice reminder of the day we took a vow to be each other’s partners for life.

Flowers for weddings can sometimes cost a bomb. And it also feels like a waste to be tossing so many flowers after the ceremony if no one wants to take them home.

I’ve been quite keen on making paper flowers for our wedding but we’ll see how many I can whip up in time. I had thoughts of mixing paper flowers with real flowers but wasn’t really sure how they’d look.

Make potpourri from flowers

Have you ever gotten flowers from a loved one but aren’t too sure what to do with them after? (Perfect for valentines day or any other special occasion…)

This time, I was determined to do something more with the flowers that Dan proposed with (find out more here). I’m not a fan of dried flowers lying around the room collecting dust, but I’m a huge fan of rooms smelling nice. So what better than to make potpourri! :)

I decided to use the rose petals only instead of the eustomas as they dry better and my fave potpourri scent is rose. I tried searching for directions but most required a lot more work and items I didn’t have, so here goes a simpler version that I concocted:

Flower series

Things have been pretty crazy recently but flowers from a loved one always makes my day! There’s just something about the gentle folds of the petals and the beautiful colors. Adds a little bit of magic to the room…

Each time I receive flowers I can’t help but snap photos of them. I’ve decided to turn them into a series of images – for memories and to share with you! If you’ve had a hectic week too, hopefully these will help make your day too :)
