I haven’t abandoned this blog, despite my lack of posts recently! It’s just that sometimes wedding planning goes through a lull period, and we are in one right now. And I’ve become busy doing other things … like opening an Etsy shop. Because, ya know, planning a wedding and working full-time and running or contributing to four websites and just living life isn’t hectic enough!
So, I’ve mentioned a couple times on this blog that we are making paper flowers to use for decoration at our reception. (And I do mean “we”: Mr. Rosie has made just as many, if not more, flowers than I have for the wedding.) The flowers are really lovely, and there are so many uses for them that I decided to make a bunch of different arrangements and bouquets and sell them on Etsy. My shop is called The Sunday Flower, and I’m hoping people will be interested in using these paper flower for their own weddings. The best part about them is how completely customizable they are. And they can be used for centerpieces (like we’re doing), bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, decoration, place card holders, cupcake toppers, and really anything you can think of. Plus they will last a long time, giving you great keepsakes from the wedding, and they’re perfect for anyone who has allergies! Of course, they can be used in any setting — I have vases of them all over our house, and they’re really perfect for home decor. They look great on an office desk, too. I’d love if anyone would check out the site, give me feedback on it, and if you like what you see, spread the word!
