Wedding Wednesday: Paper Garland

I tore a copy of this Simple Silhouettes photo from a bridal magazine last month. It's not the dress I like (although it is nice) but the paper garland in the background. I've been trying to brainstorm ideas for decorating the stage that will be a centerpiece of our reception and variety show (here are fun photos of the stage in action).

I love the idea of a paper flower, umbrella and banner swag to hang on one side of the stage. If you have a chance to see the print ad, take a closer look at the details in the paper.

I really like this idea. Sounds perfect with what you've described for your wedding so far. I guess this pircure is popular today.

Your post reminded me of the flowers they have a paper source: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/kits/flower_kits.html?cm_id=8440.190 There is even an instructional video to show you how to do it.

I love making paper flowers and if you want a patterns for several different ones I could mail them to you. They used to have the patterns on Martha's website.. her Kids Magazine editor did her wedding with all paper flowers (except the one in her hair, which was real).. her wedding was stunning. Anyway I saved the patterns if you want them. :)
