I have always loved beautiful, perfectly round flower balls or ‘lollipop’ centerpieces. There’s something playful and fun about the classically elegant design and they’re super easy to put together.
I did a diy project a while back for a colorful dessert table with carnations and floral foam, and for our wedding created hanging floral versions above the pool out of hot glue and fake flowers plucked from their stems.
The tutorial from start to finish can be found here. It’s amazing what can be made with a bit of paper and some creative time!
Beautiful! Perfect for a little girl’s room, dinner party, wedding or shower. Danielle has done a fantastic job and I can’t wait to try it out.

This idea is so clever! I can’t wait for my next shabby chic tea party opportunity to try it out. It’s a bit similar to these DIY cakestands but with teacups for beautiful votive holders.
Disney of Ruffles & Stuff, who to my sadness wrote her last post just recently, shared this creative idea in June. I will miss her beautiful talent! But the blog is still alive so we can continue to meander through it every once in a while for inspiration. Hope she’s enjoying much more mummyhood time now.
Candlesticks are great thrift finds and it would be easy to adhere a teacup to each with a bit of epoxy or super glue. I fill my teacup votives (shown here in this vintage shower scape) with rice to keep the wax from settling at the bottom of the cup.

This shower is full of so many fun ideas I don’t know where to start. But what I love most is that it’s a shower completely inspired by and dedicated to knitting – and a wonderful, colorful example of how you can showcase yours (or your bride-to-be’s) hobbies and talents to use as a personalized party theme.
City Cradle Design put together this beautiful spread using yarn and knots for nearly every detail – from the custom table backdrop to the centerpieces to adorable L-O-V-E letters. My favorite is the handmade chandelier fashioned from yarn balls and ribbon!
Inspiration from the creators: “Knotted in love was the name we gave to a recent bridal shower celebrating the bond of love that is leading the couple into marriage. We took cues in designing the shower from knotted yarn and created a homespun afternoon to celebrate a lovely new marriage.”
