Handmade ring pillows with patterns are an easy way to incorporate a print into your decor. Traditional satin or silk pillows usually offer a large flower bloom or rhinestone brooch, but these handmade ring pillows instead feature whimsical patterns and subtle embellishments. When I planned my wedding, I selected a simple satin ring pillow in ivory. It was one of the final items on my to-buy checklist, and in hindsight (always 20×20, of course) I wish I had selected one with more personalization, a larger size + reusable functionality for my love nest. I adore my ring pillow and will cherish it forever, but it is a hint overly wedding-esque and does not mesh with any decor. Plus, it’s super-duper tiny. It is likely to sit in my drawer with mementos because it is sentimental but serves no specific purpose at this time. When I spotted these patterned ring pillows by Avenue C Bridal I thought, holy wow, these are perfect! I love their charming whimsical patterns, larger sizes and subtle decorative accent pieces.
In particular, the Noir Floral Toile pillow (above + below) has completely stolen my heart. This black and white ring pillow features a gorgeous floral backdrop, stunning embellishment, and will complement nearly any color palette.
I also adore the Cote d’Azur (inspired by the French Riviera – oui, oui!) which features an elegant floral pattern and shades of chocolate brown, mocha, sea foam and sage, with an ivory background. The lush brown satin sash and fleur de lis vintage-inspired button finishes the pillow perfectly.
And, last but not least, this beautiful something blue ring pillow named Colonial Blue Oak features a leafy print in a stunning shade of blue. Thick woven cotton and contrasting shades of ivory and colonial blue combine to create a graceful leaf design – and it’s reversible! No blue garter for you? This has you covered in the something blue department.
These handmade ring pillows are part of the Special Edition collection, so only a few remain. Check out more details + additional ring pillows here. Avenue C Bridal is a featured artisan in The Marketplace – and we love ‘em!
