Deanna’s Tuesday Tip
Flowers are the finishing touch for a beautiful wedding day. They add so much to the pictures and décor, they just make everything more romantic. The only problem is that they don’t last forever. So what should you do with your gorgeous bouquet once the wedding is over? While in New York for the market we came across an adorable idea to preserve your bouquet; make it into a Christmas Ornament! This bride dried her flowers (hanging them upside down works the best) and then used the flowers to fill an ornament and decorated the outside with their wedding date. Having something to remind you of your wedding day during the holiday season will just remind you of all you have to be grateful for! Another fun idea is to make potpourri out of the flowers. Save the flowers in a nice dish and put them out as a unique decoration. If you had anything special on you the day of your wedding, your something old or something blue, place it in with the flowers. Saving the little things from your wedding is a nice way to have a reminder of your and your spouse’s love every day. Your bouquet is too pretty to just throw away, so find a unique way to keep it around, you’ll be happy you did!
