Wedding Trends: Hand Painted Paper Lanterns

I was so inspired by these hand painted lanterns Mindy Weiss, debuted at one of her events, I just knew I had to do a post.  We have seen lanterns at events over the last few years and this new innovative way to add this punch of color and pattern is just genius. 

You can completely carry your brand pattern throughout your event by adding a pattern, or just infuse two colors that you are using at the event to keep everything cohesive.  This can easy be a DIY project with stencil that can be fond at your local craft store.

Decor Ideas: Recycled Paper Flowers

It is ideas like these flowers below that makes your event memorable. Guests will know you took a few extra hours to incorporate something that is unique and chic and made for your wedding early.  If you are having real flowers at your event make sure both sets of flowers are not competing for attention.

Think about using the paper flowers during cocktail hour or on your accent tables such as your guestbook or gift table. If you really love the idea but have no clue where you would place them, think about creating an arrangement of the paper flowers and place them in the restrooms or other common areas.
