Country Wedding Bouquet with Decorative Trimmings















This month the Designer Craft Connection is hosting a blog hop featuring the fabulous product line from Decorative Trimmings.   They have colorful trims, sparkling trims, and great neutral trims.  Something for almost any project.   I ordered 3 different trims.  One I'm featuring today as part of this Wedding Themed hop, the others I'll be sharing soon in another post.   Be sure to follow the DCC link in the column on the right so you can see what other creative projects the participants are sharing!

This wedding bouquet is perfect for a simple country wedding.  It's mix of flowers, ferns, and twisting vines & twigs, combined with burlap ribbon wrapping, and a touch of pretty ivory trim with a crochet feel is casual, yet elegant at the same time.

Materials:

Decorative Trimmings 1 1/8" INCH COTTON DRAGONLOOP TRIM 
06282-8-011Y-008

Flowers of choice
Vintage Mason Jar - Optional 

Instructions: 

Arrange flowers as desired.  Cut all stems to uniform length.

Wrap stems of bouquet with burlap ribbon, pin in place to hold.

Cut 1 yard of burlap ribbon.  Use Fabri-Tac to mount ivory crochet "dragon loop" trim to center of burlap ribbon.

Tie bow around base of flowers.   The addition of the ivory crochet trim adds a beautiful feminine touch to this country style bouquet and will coordinate with  the bride's crochet style wedding dress beautifully.

After the big day, the bouquet would be beautiful displayed in a vintage Mason jar.  Either leave the pretty burlap & crochet bow on the bouquet, or tie it to the jar itself.  This second option would also make lovely centerpieces for the reception tables.

Decorative Trimmings has a vast assortment of beautiful trims - perfect for any wedding accessory or decoration - whether your theme is bright and bold colors, subtle tones, or country style - they have something for almost everyone's style!

Lovely, it would seem that you and I were thinking along the same lines. Your bouquet fits in perfectly with my wedding tablescape. Great minds think alike perhaps!

Their staff was amazing, lovely and truly professional. I could go on and on about these guys. All of the wait staff at this Las Vegas Weddings place were great at their jobs but very warm and nice people. There is no better place in the city to get married and no better guide than their manager.
