Not your Typical Bridesmaid Bouquet

Thursday, November 10, 2011

I have a new brother-in-law named Noah. He makes the best pizza in all of Austin (might I suggest stopping by East Side Pies sometime). He is also a very patient man. Anyone who will let their new bride adorn their wedding with Vegas style showgirls, tiger masks and polka dotted giraffes is alright by me. He also did not bat an eye when she wanted to carry a brooch bouquet and her Matron of Honor (me!) wanted to carry one made of plastic flowers. We are just not live flowers kind of sisters I guess.

Bouquet Form
Foamtastic Glue
Head Pins
Small Beads
Plastic Flower Petals
Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue

It takes a lot of flowers to fill a bouquet form. With each flower I used a dab of Aleene's Foamtastic to make sure the flowers stayed in place as I walked down the aisle herding two toddler flower girls.

After I covered the entire foam part in glorious plastic flowers I covered the base handle with zebra print ribbon using Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue.

I wish them many years of happiness together. I hope their days are filled with rainbows, unicorns and plastic flower bouquets.
