Tissue Paper Flowers and Painted Frames Food Table Decor

I still have one more thing from Valentine’s week to share before February is over and that is some decorations I did for a conference at church. I always feel very happy when I am able to use my passions to help and bless others, even if it is just in a creating some decorations. Since it was Valentine’s Day and all, I went with more of a girly theme. This type of decor would be great for a wedding. I made a ton of tissue paper flowers and cut out leaves from cardstock, found some frames at a thrift store and spray painted them white, and then learned a few lessons from trying to put this together.

I knew I wouldn’t be able to put nails in the wall, so I tried gluing/tying the frames together to stand upright while leaning on a wall. While that kind of worked, they were so fragile I was afraid it might fall and I didn’t want it to fall on a person or food. Fortunately we had a pallet in our garage I could attach them too that. If I had given myself more time before putting it all together I would have done something to create more contrast between the pallet and the frames/sign, but I am still happy with how it turned out.

The decorations are now waiting to be used at a bridal shower and whatever survives I hope to reuse in some fun way. I love that decorations can be inexpensive and yet look so wonderful!

Flowers: From the Side

Flowers: From The Side

I adore flowers. Especially the “wild” flower style that is so popular now. In college, I would help out at a florist every now and then and I seriously considered even going into that business. It was fun and I got to create something beautiful. This summer I planted a lot of flowers and am patiently waiting for them to bloom.

Flowers: From the Side

I want to have flowers on my kitchen table all the time. In the meantime, I found some flowers. These all came from the side of a road. Some are even from the ditch by our house. It made me happy to have my first summer flower arrangement. I’m looking forward to even more as things continue to blossom.
