Giant Paper Flowers Trend For Summer Events

Happy Friday!  The weather is so perfect now for outdoor events and weddings.  It is almost summer and with mother nature in full bloom in gardens everywhere this time of year, I want to revisit the popularity of paper flowers as one of the biggest event and party trends of this year.

Giant paper flowers are popping up at all kinds of celebrations and events and the paper flower backgrounds are so easy to create on your own from my Etsy shop flower kits available – HERE

All my flower kits come entirely cut for you!  No need to buy digital templates, print them, cut templates, trace and then cut your actual flowers and finally assemble them – that is way too many steps!! My kits are already cut for you and come with full visual step-by-step instructions! Super easy!

The ideas are endless for where to add paper flowers as decorations at a celebration. While they are trending at weddings for photo backdrops – they are now popping up at baby showers, birthday parties, fundraising events, bridal showers and even has home decor.

I offer numerous options in my Etsy craft shop for the smaller flowers too, available – HERE

The smaller three dimensional layered and rolled flowers or rolled roses can be added to just about anything.  Top off favor boxes or guest gift boxes with flowers in your event or wedding color scheme.  Create flower garlands and hang them in rows for backdrop streamer or drape them horizontally as bunting across the front of a party table or behind your table.

 

Add some rolled flowers around electric string lights to make a big statement at your next evening or low lighted event.  Lighting is always a great way to create a mood and ambiance at a wedding reception.

I will be adding many more styles of paper flowers, including crepe paper flowers over the next few weeks in the shop for more summer options too.  Be sure to stop by the shop – Ready Set Craft Kits and favorite my shop (click the heart under my shop name) to get new updates in your Etsy feed recommendations!

 

Each of the smaller flower kits also come with visual instructions as well.

The crepe paper streamer table backdrop at this party is so easy to create. Just cut and hang in straight strips.

Anchors and sailboats are the dominate decor at this nautical first birthday party!

This is a great set up with lots of stripes and sand dollars and don’t forget the straws.  Don’t forget if you have some beach decor around the home, those make perfect props at a nautical party table- like the giant anchor, lifesaver, and lighthouse at this party above.

This ahoy party features great balloon styling!  Those columns of balloons flanking the table make a stunning statement.

Be sure to visit my Pinterest balloon board for more balloon diy ideas.

This adorable nautical baby shower in a “Welcome Aboard” theme in soft pastel blues is perfect for a little baby boy on the way!

Hope these nautical parties have inspired you to start planning your next event!
