Making-a-silver-glittered-blumebox-centerpiece

When I spotted this two tone gold glittered mason jar on Pinterest, I immediately tagged it to my pinspiration board to try out on a blumebox.

On hand, I had silver glittery ribbon that I figured might just work as easily and with less mess than glitter. And easy it was. I cut the ribbon in strips that fit around the circumference of the 4″ cube blumebox and started gluing from the bottom and worked my way up. I stopped 1/3 of the way up the box, but you could cover to whatever your preference.

If you choose to use glitter, follow the instructions here on lilyshop.

We absolutely loved the results and know this would be stunning at a winter wedding, formal event and sparkling for a New Years party!

Bridal-Bouquet-Transport-Boxes

How are you transporting your bridal flowers? Likely in glass vases that are clustered inside used long cardboard flower boxes rigged tight with tissue and newspaper. Am I close?

Well, we here at blumebox offer a pretty slick, personalized and eco-friendly option of transporting bridal bouquets as well as boutonnieres.

For this shoot, we paired up with the talented Hailey Bernstein of Zest Floral & Event Design to provide the florals. If you are not familiar with Hailey and Zest Floral & Event Design, pop on over to the website to see what these girls can do! I promise you will not be disappointed!

What size blumebox works best for transporting bridal bouquets?
The 8″ blumebox is definitely the most popular shape and size. If your bouquets err on the shorter side, the 6″ blumebox will work well.

What size blumebox works best for delivering boutonnieres?
The 5.5″ blumebox cube is the largest opening we sell and can fit up to 3 boutonnieres, depending on their size.
The 4″ blumebox cube fits 1-2 boutonnieres, depending on their size. This is a great option for small weddings, proms and Bar Mitzvahs.

There are so many ways to personalize the blumeboxes for bridal bouquet delivery . . . check out the ways!

make-your-own-tissue-vases

The inspiration for our “how to make a shabby chic container with tissue paper”, came to us after seeing this DIY Favor Box Ideas from Tulle Box Designs over on Wedding Chicks.

Using a few supplies, (4″ white blumebox cube, cut up 2″ squares of white tissue paper, double stick tape and the end of a pencil) this tissue clad blumebox flower vase began to takes its poofy shape in no time at all.

1) Line each side of the blumebox with strips double stick tape, leaving about a 1/4″ between each strip.

2) Take a piece of tissue paper and wrap round eraser side of pencil. This will help you stick the tissue to the blumebox. Continue along the path of the double stick tape to you reach the end. Repeat till each panel is covered with tissue. To mix it up a bit use various colored tissue to get an ombre effect!

3) Fill with flowers, candy or cake pops!

Moss-Centerpieces-DIY

Moss-Centerpieces-DIY-2

If you have not worked much with the blumebox product line, you will quickly discover that the cardboard material in which the flower container is made from, allows for endless possibilities. This tutorial on making a moss centerpiece is no exception.

With four supplies (4″ blumebox cube, floral foam, bag of moss, and a glue gun) you can have a moss adorned vase in no time. I used our 4″ sage chain link blumebox cube to blend in with the color of the moss and wouldn’t you know it, it is on sale for $2.50.  All in you, are creating a moss centerpiece for $3.50 each, not including flowers.

Let’s get started, why don’t we…Start on one panel of the blumebox and begin gluing in small patches and adhere moss to glue. Avoid spreading hot glue over whole panel as it dries rapidly and wont adhere the moss to the box. Work your way around the blumebox until all the panels are covered with moss.

Onto filling this rustic beauty. Size your floral foam and place into the plastic bag (included in the blumebox) then insert into the moss covered blumebox cube. Push down as much plastic as possible so that it is not visible, but not too much to where the water will leak between the bag and box. Carefully (I recommend a watering can) begin watering the floral foam so that it begins absorbing. Water until foam is well soaked up with water. The box will be quite heavy, which is what you want.

For the flowers, we used ranunculus and simply placed into the floral foam. Once we finished designing the flowers, we filled the base with more moss to cover the plastic and top off that country chic look we love. And there you have it! This DIY moss centerpiece would be suitable for a country chic wedding, rustic farm rehearsal dinner or Easter brunch!

Easter-2013-With-Burlap

Has anyone else been thrown off with the early arrival of Easter this year? Well, I certainly have!!! For those of you who still are not sure how that table is going to look this Sunday, we have a super easy and gorgeous idea to send your way.

Burlap people. . . is a great material that can add a nice touch of rustic elegance and country chic to anything. For the blumebox bouquet, I started with my current favorite size blumebox, the 5.5″ cube, in white.

Start by decorating the blumebox. Glue desired length burlap to suit circumference of box. I happened upon some awesome burlap ribbon one Michael’s outing, that was great for this project. Layer the burlap with your color choice of raffia and tie off.  Now for the flowers. . . I used an assortment of tulips, ranunculus, craspedia and assorted greens and arranged to my liking. And there you have it!

I love everything about this project and believe that it would be simply gorgeous for a country or farm wedding or garden party.

A post is not a post without other inspiration. For the burlap bunny bag check out Bloom Designs and for the burlap bunny banner and many more burlap ideas hop on over to Uncommon Designs Online.

Happy Easter!
