I know, and have been told on numerous occasions, that I have an addiction to the website Pinterest.com. But it is ALWAYS worth it. For example, the wedding I have been planning is what I like to describe as traditional with a twist, and while surfing the many “pins” in the wedding search, I found these and just knew.
Found here, the author gives step by step instructions with great photos to keep all DIYers on the same page.
To get the full affect you really have to visit the site, but my true inspiration was this photo.
Then, all of a sudden, I could (FINALLY) see my bouquet in my minds eye. I can create these beautiful flowers (from the music score of our song, of course) and have them incorporated in a tight arrangement of ivory peonies, and deep burgundy accent flowers , with the stems wrapped in silk clasped with a cute star pin. I finally have that perfect picture that can be explained to a florist and be built into creation. I can’t wait to see the outcome, but for now it’s time to practice some paper roses!
