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!

With Fall days away, we have been meaning to blog about autumn inspiration. But with the heat wave we have had in Portland, I was not inspired and motivated to speak of such a thing while wearing flip flops, tanks and sundresses!

So as we speak it is cool, overcast and misting…so now is my chance to share this fall wedding bouquet by the talented Mews Floral Designers. How lovely is the accent of the leaves, acorns and flower to the front of the blumebox, tying into the bouquet itself.

Blumeboxes are made out of cardboard making it an easy “canvas” to decorate. Whether it be ribbon, fabric, paper, adhesives, flowers. . . with the help of a glue gun, a blumebox can be customized in minutes.

Elements in Bloom out of Seattle does a fabulous job of presenting their bridal bouquets by branding their business with their shop sticker adhered to our 8″ lime slice blumebox.

If you think this bouquet is stunning, be sure to check out Elements in Bloom’s website for so many more gorgeous designs!

This is a great solution for cocktail tables or bistro tables.

Start with the 4″ cube,  add contrasting colored ribbon, adhere sticker and place potted plant inside the blumebox cube and you have one very easy table decoration. Another take on this concept is to replace sticker with photos of the guests of honor,  a monogram or table numbers.

These would make for great gifts for the guests!
