White Box with Flower
This place-card favor blooms with tiny paper flowers.
Elegant White Box Favor
The box gets a new silhouette from a sheer paper band that's folded at the top and secured with a ribbon -- the couple's names and wedding date were rubber-stamped on the band before it was wrapped around the box.
Love Poetry Favor Box
A beaded message and a few lines of Shakespearean verse photocopied onto newsprint paper spell out pure romance.
For a twist on the fancy chandelier, hang these fluffy pom-poms instead. Each one is made up of several separately made rosettes; just combine two or three, sew or tie together at the center with white pipe cleaner, and fluff into pom-poms. Suspended almost invisibly from the ceiling by monofilament, these soft orbs recall clouds sailing across a blue sky; they also recall in color and shape the white peonies in the centerpieces.
Whether you plan to dine at a sweetheart table or with your loved ones at a head table, this paper table skirt ensures you and your groom will be sitting pretty. To make it, open tissue fans halfway and attach with double-sided tape to the underside of the table. Drape a sheer tablecloth over the table to soften the look.
Paper ribbon printed with a poem binds a stack of boxes.
With their whispery petals and luminous silver centers, the tissue-paper flowers that bloom on this wintry wreath look as if they were plucked from a fairy tale.
Tissue Paper Centerpieces
In winter, when fresh blossoms may be harder to come by, these lush tissue-paper flowers are in full bloom. Their silver centers are actually Christmas balls, a nod to the season. Arranged at different heights in silver trumpet vases and mint julep cups, they bring whimsy to a formal reception table set in all white.
White Floral Boxes
These groovy favors are made using just four different flower punches.
Perfect as a centerpiece for the party or as individual guest favors (perhaps at a shower), stunning orchids emerge from terra-cotta pots painted white and arranged on saucers; a butterfly-shaped tag on a thin wire holder hovers over each plant.
Paper Lantern Centerpieces
The easy way to get a super-elegant look? Adorn your tables with crystal everything. The easy and inexpensive way? Dress up your tables with our paper lanterns fashioned from white honeycomb tissue ornaments. (Underneath are tall, flame-safe glass cylinders.)
Fragrant Lily Garland
Perfume your ceremony or reception site with a garland of sweetly scented lilies, most abundant in springtime.
Ruffly Boxed Favors
Scan and print art from a monogram book onto adhesive paper; cut out with a large scallop craft punch, and affix to lid. Fold a 1-inch piece of narrow ribbon in half; glue to underside of lid at center front. Fill and close the box, then wrap pleated ribbon around it, and secure in back with double-sided tape.
Establish a gentle ambience with centerpieces that glow like moonlight. Enchanting for an evening reception, these votives are made with clear glass cylinders (we used several sizes), white lace, and white candles.
Boxed Groom's Cake
Assembled in the shape of a three-tier layer cake, store-bought boxes hold individual slices of the groom's cake, ready for the guests to take home; tucked between the white boxes are ranunculuses, sweet peas, hyancinths, and lilies of the valley.
Personalize the entrance to the ceremony in an instant with wooden initials, whose warm color scheme welcomes guests.
We're pretty sure "cloud nine" was coined for a moment like this. Imagine saying "I do" under a fluttering canopy of honeycomb garlands. Leaf garlands, bulkpartysupplies.com
