State Flower Escort Cards

We loved the way Minnesota bride Meghan Greenfield incorporated her state flower, the lady slipper orchid, into her bouquet. Extending that inspiration to the reception, our associate crafts editor, Erin Furey, illustrated the 50 nifty’s official buds to correspond to each guest’s hometown, and then featured them on framed prints that act as escort cards. For a not-too-large wedding, it serves as a gorgeous display, a lovely favor, and a sweet way to get everyone feeling right at home.
