Hayfever bride - paper bouquet...

I've finished off the bridal bouquet for the bride with hay fever.
This forever bouquet flowers have been made with designer papers, card, buttons and beads in shades of purple.
 




 
Finished with a tightly bound ribbon handle and vintage brooch which is removable to be worn at future anniversary dinners etc.
 
 
I will be publishing a video tutorial of how to make your own - but if you don't feel confident at this, then please visit my Folksy shop or web page at www.anniefloribunda where you can buy one very similar.

Rosenations - cross between roses and carnations...

I was asked to make a wedding posy for a bride who suffers dreadfully with hayfever. She is getting married in May and wants something quite simple.
She's not really into bling - so the heirloom vintage brooch posies I make are out of the question, so I have been busy making several differenct kinds of flowers from paper and fabric to see what I come up with...
 
Paper roses and carnations - I might put these together and call them "Rosenations"!
Here are some I've been making and am going to add buttons and beads to and assemble into a posy...
 

 
I'll post a picture of the posy and a tutorial on how to make your own when I'm done x

Videa Tutorial for Kasudamu Flowers

A few of you have asked me for a worksheet on how to make Kasudamu flowers - a Japanese paper folding technique -
but I have gone one better than that
and have, at last, got round to doing my first ever video tutorial!!
Lol - Be gentle with me...
So here goes - I hope you enjoy it ... I need to do a follow up one to show how to add the stem and buttons - so watch this space ...

Mad as a hatter!

I had a photo shoot today with a couple of freinds.
We designed a Mad Hatters Table for photographs that we could all use...
Here are the results...
 
 
Bunting was from Heartfelt & Homely and The Cake Hole, Sleaford made us the amazing cake!
Happy (real) roses that had been dyed carnival colours were by Bouquet Centre, Sleaford.
 
 
The "Drink Me" labels and all other stationery was made by Lyndsey Glover
 
 
 
 The Vintage China was loaned to us by Bites to Banquets, Sleaford
 
 
 
I decorated the candelabra (which are available to hire, as is the birdcage. Sorry about this photo' - dont know why but several of my photos are loading sideways for some reason!!!
Most annoying!!!
 
Anyway... I made some napkin holders from playing cards...
 
 
We also set up a gold and cadburys purple table and a lovely vintage table...
photo's of those to follow shortly, for now I will leave you with this one because "We're all mad 'round here"!!!!

We're all mad in Wonderland

Table layout photo shoot on Sunday, so I am busy trying out new ideas for our "mad hatters tea party table"...
Wanted to create something a little different as a centre piece...
This is as far as I've got so far...
 
 
Hung a children's china tea set and assorted keys, etc from the candelabra with thin ribbons...
 
 
Using this broken clock as my prop of "I'm late...I'm late... for a very important date!!" - Just need to add some labels to that effect and have found some great free printables on pinterest that I'm going to use...



 
The lovely big red swirly lollipops (like the Cheshire Cats eyes!!) will go into a vintage milk jug as will all the flowers... vintage... vintage...vintage!!!
 

This would be perfect for an Alice in Wonderland party/wedding.
 
Cant wait to see it all laid out with labels, invites, place names, vintage china etc etc - come back and have a look next week for our photo's.
