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.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and today I have some stunning gift ideas that you can easily make yourself with paper flowers.  A few weeks ago, I shared some inspiring large scale flower backdrops and if you love these giant paper flowers, you can see that post – HERE

To make smaller paper flowers, you can use paper punches or metal dies to cut them in a cutting machine, such as a Sizzix Big Shot or a Cricut Cuttlebug.

However, if you don’t have a cutting machine and all the metal dies, paper and equipment – you can absolutely short cut some paper flower gifts by visiting my craft shop and order already cut flowers that you can easily assemble and add them to anything.

Stop by my shop for a variety of paper flowers here – READY SET CRAFT KITS

Below are several creative gift ideas you can make with paper flowers for your mother for Mother’s Day.

A beautiful handmade Mother’s Day card with 3-D flowers added on the front.

A paper flower wreath to hang on a door or wall inside the home.

A flower decorated birdhouse.

A flower monogram letter.

Instead of paper flowers, how about paper succulents as a table centerpiece.

A simple flower notebook and pin – perfect for a grocery list pad or a to do list notebook.

Framed wall art featuring handmade paper flowers will make your mother smile every day.

A flower bouquet that will never wilt would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift too!

Vintage Tea Party Bridal Shower

Bridal Shower In Vintage Tea Party Theme

If you are planning a bridal shower in the near future- I have the perfect shower theme to inspire you.  The vintage tea party theme is trending right now for bridal showers.  It’s classic and sophisticated.  Plus all the ladies can dress up and you can encourage all the guests to wear a big hat for the shower. Make it a true soiree with requested dress attire – you could even provide a box of vintage found hats for the guests to wear.  Today, I am featuring some amazing tea party tablescapes.

This is a fairly easy bridal shower theme to put together.  To keep it under budget- ask around to see if you can borrow a family member’s vintage china or visit a thrift store and buy a mash up of old tea cups and saucers.  Yep, a mix and match of china is absolutely fine for this set up and would even look stunning. Add in some vintage mason jars and vintage or new decorative tea pots for your flower vases.

To get the look of the vintage tea party you will want plenty of flowers and most set ups feature fresh roses in light pink and white and accents of baby’s breath.

Although, you can still pull off the look with silk flowers as well.  This shower above features silks glued around a painted decorative wood picture frame and it looks just as beautiful as fresh flowers.  Add in some elements of gold with gold candlesticks or gold plated utensils and of course don’t forget to drape pearls here and there.

Lace is a must for this theme. Use it as bunting, for your tablecloth and even draped it across frames and as a table backdrop. If you can’t find vintage lace linens- there is no shortage of new table linens in lacy patterns and designs – you can even use curtains in sheer lace fabric.  Paper doilies on all your plates will look so shabby chic too.  Most tea parties feature a sweets table but I recommend offering some healthy options too- such as strawberries and raspberries.

Ask the bride for some old photos of herself and the groom, either growing up as kids or the two of them together, and use them at the event.  Black and white is best (color photos can be professionally transitioned to black and white- or you can even photocopy color photos in black and white) and they can be added to picture frames or even hang them up as a bunting.

One last tip for the shower- bring in a bit of violet color in your flowers or shower decor.  This year’s color pick by Pantone is Ultra Violet and the tea party theme is perfect for adding in this shade of color. Be sure to spend some time asking the bride about her likes and dislikes for food and decor as well.  Add in a personal touch and surprise her.  Maybe she loves daisies or strawberry shortcake and would love that you remembered this and included it at her shower.

Come back next week to the The Party Fetti website – I will be featuring big balloons for weddings and for amazing photo shoot ideas!
