      I think CUTE especially as it is in Mexico. The bright colors really look fabulous with the brides maid dresses.

            call me crazy but I really like this idea - the kits are like $15.00 and that would be great if you could make your centerpieces and not have to spend a ton on flowers! I think I am going to order one...Sarah are you ordereding one too - if so which one so that we can get different ones and try 2 out?

              Hey Sarah- this looks so cool doesn't it? I think I want to order the giant magnolia kit (did you notice that was what the bride carried as her bouquet on that know slideshow?) because I'm thinking they would be really cool centerpieces. Also, I want to order the fringe paper kit just because they look so cool.
              I'm thinking that we may be able to use them as a pattern and just buy the paper to keep making multiples instead of orderig a kit for every centerpiece we need? What are your thoughts?

                I am going to order this one and try it out. I think the kit just teaches you how to make the flowers and then you can buy your own paper and make as many as you want. THIS IS EXCITING! Order your kit too and we will see how us "Sarah's" do! Click the image to open in full size.

                  Love all of those. and I really love the giant magnolia the Knottie bride was carrying! Maybe after you try out the kit you can post the template? for other brides?

                    I really like that one too.
                    Sounds like a good plan! I'm off to work now, so I'll order mine tomorrow...

                      OK I couldn't wait....I saw some tissue paper in my grocery store and had to buy some. They didn't have a wide variety of colors but here is what I was able to do on my first try. I was going for a "peony" look. The first flower took me 2 hours because I got the bright idea that each petal had to be attached individually! After that one I was able to do 3 in about 1 hour. I think with thi spractice definitely makes perfect> I also think that using several shades of the same color will make for a more "realistic" look. Let me know what you think!
