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!

We love the “woodsy” feel that silver birch gives off, making it the quintessential texture to incorporate in a Fall or Winter celebration. Shown here are a cluster of 4″ cube silver birch blumeboxes that served as a runner for this table.

Each silver birch cube was filled with a cluster white hydrangeas and focus yellow mini buttons.

Another take on this idea would be to move the blumeboxes together to form one long centerpiece without any space between the boxes. Leave as is or tie off with ribbon.

Lavish Flora transports their bridal bouquets in blumeboxes. For this wedding they alternated sizes and colors that coordinated beautifully with the decor of the wedding.

Gold gets a bad rap! It is often considered showy and over the top, but the blumebox gold metallic is a satin matte finish making one elegant centerpiece option.

Christine with Organic Bouquet Wedding & Events sent on this gorgeous floral design she created by incorporating hues of pale yellow and white with accents of celadon green arranged in side a gold blumebox.
