Mothers Day has already happened for us over here in the UK but we couldn’t let our friends from over the pond’s Mother’s Day pass without a fun free printable that’s sure to make all the mothers smile! I don’t know about you but my mum absolutely loves receiving flowers but why not jazz up those flowers one step further by printing off one of our pretty flower wraps?

There are 3 different designs to choose from and I really think they bump the gift of flowers up a notch! You can either print the designs onto large A3 paper for a large bouquet or print them out onto smaller pieces of paper for cute little bunches of flowers.

YOU WILL NEED:

Fresh Flowers // Tissue Paper // String // Clear Tape // Flower Wrap Design 1 // Flower Wrap Design 2 // Flower Wrap Design 3 //

STEP 1:

First of all you’ll want to bunch your flowers together, so cut them down to their desired length and then add an elastic band or some tape to secure them all together.

STEP 2:

If you want to add in some tissue paper like we have here then now is the time to add it in! Simple a cut a square out of your favourite coloured tissue paper and wrap or fold it around the flowers. I find it works best by placing the bouquet at one corner of the tissue then wrapping the right side of it over to the left, then fold up the bottom part of the tissue paper over that and finally fold the left side over top.

shutterfly-tropical-fruity-bridal-shower-styed-shoot-table-styling-2

I hope you’re feeling the tropical vibes today because we’ve teamed up with Shutterfly to bring you a fun and fruity styled shoot that would be perfect for a bridal shower or bachelorette party! And let me reassure you that even though we are settling into Autumn now, a fruity theme is beautiful and timeless, no matter what the season! You could even choose fruit that’s notorious for the season you’re hosting in, like cranberries for winter and pumpkins and squash for Autumn!

shutterfly-tropical-fruity-bridal-shower-styed-shoot-table-styling-25

The best part about this shoot is you can personalize every single item featured here to fit your individual style, how awesome is that?! As you guys know though we absolutely love bright, bold colors and fun tropical prints so we tailored the products to match! Here’s 6 easy ways that Shutterfly can make your bridal shower just as fun…

1. USE SLOGAN WINE GLASSES

You can’t deny that slogans are having a real moment right now and when we saw these fun wine glasses we just knew they would be perfect for a girls night! We chose ours to say ‘Trust me, you can dance” (here) and “Bottoms Up!”(here), but you could choose your own quotes or even have the date of your bachelorette party! Don’t forget to complete the glassware with a cute decanter!

2. GET A STATEMENT TABLE RUNNER

We completely fell in love with the pineapple print available within Shutterfly’s Art Library and it’s quite clear how fab it looked as a table runner! We were super impressed with the quality and it made such a statement to really set the tone for the rest of the décor.

3. MAKE YOUR PLATES POP!

Patterned plates look fantastic on tables and are a super easy way to add an extra element of color or pattern to your décor, we chose a watermelon print when we were personalizing our plates to continue with our tropical, fruity theme! You could even add in some pretty placemats underneath!

THIS DIY WEDDING IS THE EPITOME OF HOMEMADE

INTIMATE DIY HANDCRAFTED WEDDING IN A BREWERY (3)

Eric and Lindsey were married at Café Brauer, a restaurant and ballroom building at the south pond in Lincoln Park. Brauer is one of the most beautiful examples of Prairie School Architecture in Chicago and was a perfect ceremony venue for Lindsey and Eric, both of whom are artists and creators in Chicagoland.

Their friends and family celebrated with them at the Aquanaut Brewing Company, which was founded by Eric in the Bowmanville/ Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago. Their reception was wonderfully personal, with details created by the couple, their family, and their friends.

In the yard of the Aquanaut Brewing Company, Lindsey started a flower farm called Avium Flowers and sourced almost all of the flowers for her wedding from that farm. Eric brewed special batches of beer to serve to guests. Lindsey’s mom spent hours hand-lettering the signs scattered around. Every part of their day was meaningful and beautiful!

STEP 3:

Pop your card onto your mat and hit go on the Cricut, do this several times, varying the colours of your card as you go until you have 8 flowers stencils.

STEP 4:

This step is a little tricky to describe but you’ll need to roll up the flowers tightly then let them spring out and uncoil until a flower shape has formed! Glue this in place then allow to dry and repeat with your other flowers.
