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.

Plan Your Party or Wedding Early

JUMP START YOUR PARTY AND WEDDING PLANNING TODAY

Today, I want to help you start planning your party with a FREE printable party planner that you can print out and start getting ready for this year’s birthday party!  Scroll down for the FREE printable planner.

First, let’s talk about what is trending for birthday parties and baby showers for 2017.  Custom prints and personalized party decor is hot!

Oh sure, you could shop at that big box retail party store, but why? If you are planning ahead by at least 6 to 8 full weeks for an upcoming birthday party, baby shower, wedding, or any celebration- why not order in custom or personalized party decorations to coordinate to your party theme?!

Oh whoa!  Did that planning timeline throw you off? It’s actually smart and less stressful to start planning your children’s birthdays right now.  Why not?  At least start thinking of your theme and/or color scheme and ask them for some input! Even if their birthday is not until August, you can start shopping for custom made to order items on Etsy now.  In fact, you should!  

Sadly, I have to turn so many custom order requests away in the spring and summer months because mothers and brides wait until the last minute to plan and organize their birthday party for their little one’s special day.  I think Etsy shoppers sometimes forget that much of what is offered on Etsy is made to order, after checkout and many seller’s on Etsy have a full-time job.  Mine just happens to be my full-time business as a direct vendor for event planners all over the United States.

Yes, in most cases- I can ship many items from THE PARTY FETTI SHOP right away!  Ready to ship inventory is no problem but for my custom made items, I need my full 14 business day production time, so I can schedule orders out.  During my busiest time of year, spring and summer, I generally have 5 to 8 custom orders a day to get done and shipping out by customer deadlines.

However if you plan ahead, as early as now, custom party decor is the way to go!

Did you know that PINWHEEL PRETTIES offers prints in every party theme to coordinate to your event?

 Every party you can dream up, I’ve got you covered!  Prints in every style are available for a Circus party, Under The Sea, Finding Dora, Rainbow, Polka Dots, and we’ll even help out with Disney themes too!  Some of our top requested design are previewed below –

Pinwheels At A Local Festival

PINWHEELS AT A LOCAL FESTIVAL 

Pinwheel Bunting

Today I am sharing some photos of a small public festival where my handmade pinwheels were featured recently.

Paper Pinwheels

While I have worked with many marketing firms and event planners helping with decorations for promo events- one of my favorite event planning companies is, KLIK Parties, and I have worked with them a few times to help them create stunning events for their clients.  I just love Klee and Nikki’s party styling.  They really take it to the next level!

Pinwheel Table Centerpiece

This was a local small public festival that the KLIK style gurus decorated for the annual Pops Concert and Picnic on the lawn of The Street Chestnut Hill featuring a 50-piece philharmonic orchestra.  My fun pinwheels swirled in the breeze as the music played.

You can visit their Facebook page to see some of their other amazing party, wedding, and event designs – https://www.facebook.com/Klikparties

They are located in the Boston, MA area so if live in the area and need help with a wedding or event, I highly recommend KLIK as your event styling team!

If you need a set of custom twirling paper pinwheels for your next promo event, party or wedding, visit my shop – PINWHEEL PRETTIES
