    Ok ladies - it's crunch time, and I am spending this week getting all of my stuff done. First project, my 4 flowergirls bouquets. I thought it would be fun to make them myself, and use fake flowers, so they could keep them. No idea how I was going to attempt this - so here is my first try. Please let me know what you think!

    I added a Celtic knot charm just cuz they're all Irish kiddies - and thought it would be nice to add this touch. And they all have charm bracelets - they can keep these afterwards.

    Anyway - be honest! Here is my first try ... whatcha think? Sorry for the poor pictures!

      I think they look good. Did you try wrapping the pink ribbon completely across the green, so that all you see is the pink? Does this make sense? ha!

      I think they look great.. I like that you added the knot that they can keep, a very special touch. I think I agree with Martha about the pink ribbon - I would either just use it at the top to make the bow or do the whole thing in pink. Then again, it may look different IRL.

        well, there's green ribbon under the pink ribbon - so i could do without the green i guess. i was trying to incorporate the green because technically green and blue are our colors! but the flowergirls' mom decided she wanted to buy pink dresses - so i used pink and green! still playing around.

        thanks for the tips - keep 'em coming!

            I love the general idea...I'm undecided about the pink ribbon, especially the criss-cross. What about just leaving the green ribbon? Could you attach the charm with that? I like the green and I think you don't necessarily need the pink. Great idea to make something they can keep. omg Ann your wedding is so close!

              yup. but i did say i was ok with her finding something - and sent some examples of the style i liked, and said blues or greens were my colors. but she found pink dresses she loved! oh well - i don't have bridesmaids, so there's really nothing to match to - i got over it pretty quick! lol

                That's good! I am sure the flower girl dresses were the least of your worries!

                    Ann, they look great. My only suggestion is that since you can't really see the green, what about wrapping them in ivory ribbon to match your dress color? Or just use the pink.
