Video: How to add flowers to lanterns for weddings (step by step guide)

Have you read our post 'Use lanterns as wedding centrepieces' and are now wondering exactly how to add flowers to lanterns? What do I attach them with? And how do I keep them fresh? Well we thought we'd give you a quick demo, through our sister company Passion for Flowers we are often adding florals to lanterns, table plans, ladders, poles and all sorts of things. For the lanterns we have found using a small piece of Oasis is by far the easiest way and it ensures your flowers have a drink. At the bottom of this post is a video but first we thought it would be easier to show you some step by step photos of the process. It is really simple, we promise, you could ask your Mum and bridesmaids to lend a helping hand the day before the wedding to get these prepared, it's actually really fun and get's everyone excited about the big day. The lanterns we have used in this demo are our black lanterns, the same technique can be used on any lantern, browse our full collection of lanterns here

Lavender in Brown Paper Wedding Favours / Pew Ends

For all your rustic loving brides we have a super easy DIY project for you today. It couldn't be more simple, take a bunch of our dried lavender and wrap in brown paper and fasten with twine. The lavender parcels can then be used as pew ends or aisle decorations for a country church or rustic venue/ Alternatively make smaller lavender and brown paper parcels and leave on each guests place setting as a wedding favour. This will also add a lovely lavender scent to your venue. A big bonus of these is you can make these well in advance of your wedding and store in a cool dry place, ask you wedding venue staff to tie them to the ceremony chairs or place them at guests place settings leaving time for you to get ready the morning of your wedding.

Dusky Blue Wedding Ideas – Decorations & Details

We are seeing more and more couples adding a hint of dusky blue to their wedding colour palette and we love it. The soft dusky blue tone can be mixed with other shades of blue for an all blue wedding colour scheme, or perhaps mix it with other colours. We like dusky blue and grey, dusky blue and pink, dusky blue and gold or just keep to all colours in muted tones. There are lots of different areas you could bring the dusky blue colour into your wedding, how about for the bridal party outfits, dusky blue dresses for your bridesmaids and grey suits with dusky blue ties for the men, they could wear a button hole tied with dusky blue ribbon. For your decor, introducing colours in the table linen can be really effective, dusky blue table runners or table cloths would look beautiful. Or for a more subtle tone use dusky blue napkins, or ribbons on chair backs. Bring the dusky blue tones through in your choice of wedding favours, how about blue macarons, or tiny boxes tied with blue ribbon. Dusky blue candles in gold candle sticks look perfect for a blue and gold wedding and of course using blue tones in your florals and ribbons will continue the look.

Drinks Station Wedding Checklist

Are you hoping to set up a drinks station at your wedding? Wondering what exactly you need to make it happen, we have created a checklist showing what you will need. If you are just in the early planning stages of your wedding this is the perfect opportunity to pin it now, read it later!
First things first, choose a location

Outside - make sure it's in the shade.
Inside - choose somewhere easy for your guests to access.
Set up a table - either take a vintage dresser to your venue or use one of their tables.
Dress the table with a table cloth or table runner if desired.
Something to hold the drinks

We love drinks dispensers, easy to fill and for guests to help themselves and re-fill their glasses.
Depending on the number of guests and number of drinks you are offering you may need a few of these on your table.
Dispensers work best when raised up so guests can fit their glass under the tap, try a couple of tree slices for a rustic look or a pastel coloured cake stand.
Glasses and straws

You will need to supply guests with glasses to drink from, these could be supplied by your venue or caterers or you could opt for something a little different and use mason jars or bottles for your drinks.
Add a paper straw for a little fun.
Fresh Fruit

Depending on the drinks you are offering perhaps some fresh strawberries, blueberries or raspberries would be a nice touch, guests can add these themselves.
Or use fruit to introduce colour or a styling element for your drinks station as crate full of peaches or lemons and limes looks lovely.

How about making your own signs, these could label the drinks you have on offer or create a bar menu.
