Hi, lovelies! Have you thought about what kind of backdrop you’ll use for your wedding ceremony or reception? Any blank space can benefit greatly by adding a decorative backdrop or feature wall. We’ve talked about many beautiful options, from unique door backdrops to ceremony arches to lighted tulle displays and reception backdrop ideas. And we’ve talked about giant flowers… which, to me, are one of the greatest backdrops of all time. Giant paper flowers are large to make a statement, grand enough for a wedding, yet delicate enough to blend in seamlessly with your decor. So, when Kelly wrote us about where to find a giant paper flower template so she could DIY her way to a gorgeous backdrop, we were eager to jump on board. She writes,
Hi Emmaline Bride! Do you know how to make paper flowers or where I can find a giant paper flower template to make my own? I don’t normally do many d-i-y projects but I think I could tackle this one. Thanks!
Hi Kelly, great question! I hear you on the DIY project front… sometimes it’s easier to order, but other times it’s more fun to make it yourself! Oddly enough I also think giant paper flowers would be really fun to make. The result would be beautiful and you could always re-use the giant paper flower backdrop as home decor in an office or bedroom (like a nursery!)
