Tissue Paper Flowers

June 4, 2011

I am absolutely in love with these tissue paper dahlias!  Use them for place settings, centerpieces, bouquets, napkin rings, flower pins, and more.   They can also be made out of a light fabric such as chiffon.

Glassware at an antique shop

Shop antique stores for vintage glassware of various shapes and sizes.

In a single antique and collectibles store, I found nearly 75 vintage bottles and vases to use as single-bud vases.   These vases can be scattered throughout the room and on the dining tables to create an eclectic and vintage feel.   Fill the vases with small flowers and cluster them together to create a beautiful centerpiece that’s inexpensive and creative!  The vases can also double as favors if you let guests take them home.

Tip: decide on clear glass or colored glass and stick with it.  Otherwise, the mixture can become unorganized or messy.
