DIY wedding flowers + make your own napkins

makeourownnapkins1

We love the idea of anything DIY, makes for great photos, lovely memories and great table conversation at the wedding. Great design does not have to cost a lot, especially if you do it yourself.

Cans with colorful graphics make unexpected, offbeat vases and can be super cheap. Plus you get something to eat out of it as well. www.flowerbud.com sells Grand Boxes which include plenty of flowers to create multiple bouquets. The above peonies are from flowerbud.com.

This offbeat idea was taken from Glamour Magazine and photographed by Stuart Tyson Making your own wedding napkins might take a bit of prepping but in the end you will be so thrilled. Especially if after the wedding you have some cute napkins to remember your special day. www.purlbee.com teaches you exactly how to whip out some handmade napkins. She also has an addicting site www.purlsoho.com that has some amazing fabrics, patterns, books whatever you need. The bundle of fabric above is www.purlsoho.com

If you are wondering where the absolutely adorable fabric above is from, wonder no more it is from www.warmbiscuit.com (love that name).

    These are such fantastic projects! I love the tin can vase!! I worked in a grocery store in high school and not once while I was stacking those exact cans did I think that they could be used for something beautiful. I think that’s essentially the essence of DIY-taking something ordinary and making it extraordinary. Thanks so much for sharing!

    These are beautiful! Shame that I can’t find peonies where I’m from (North Carolina).

    I love peonies and if anyone has any information, that’d be great!

    I got flowers for my wedding at bloomsbythebox.com. Not only were they helpful, but their flowers were beautiful. I wanted Peonies as well and they ship next day to anywhere in the country! Hope that helps.

    I arranged my bouquets, boutonnieres, and vases, and I used BloomsbytheBox.com and weddingflowersofamerica.com. Both companies sent gorgeous flowers! My wedding was the Saturday after a mid-week holiday, so I split my order out of paranoia that FedEx or UPS wouldn’t deliver – both were exactly on time!

    I made my own napkins, but I used a rotary cutter with a fancy blade (Victorian cut, I think?) instead of hemming all of the sides. They looked great, and I don’t think anyone was bothered by the raw edges at all. I cut 4 napkins at a time with the rotary cutter, so I finished 100 in about an hour. It was less expensive than renting napkins too!

    I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They are rllaey convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for beginners. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post!!

    It’s an amazing paragraph in favor of all the online people; they will
    take advantage from it I am sure.
