When it came to wedding decoration I had no idea what I wanted. As a couple we are very mix and match, so it was only right that all the bits and pieces for the big day reflected this! The ideas though, never stopped flowing.
One element I had seen and loved were bay trees. I always think these look perfect and so when I came across some small ribbon tree decorations as centrepieces, I knew I wanted to make some big ones for the start of the aisle.
Time, lots (and lots) of ribbon, lots (and lots) of pins, some floor brush handles, polystyrene balls, large buckets. Seemed simple enough……and it really was!
I started off cutting the ribbon into lengths, it made sense to cut these in bulk-and saved a lot of time in comparison to doing one at a time.
I made a hole in the middle for the brush handles (bargain at £2 each from b&q)
Hours and hours, and then some hours later….
I put the brush handle as far into the polystyrene balls as I could. And placed in the large buckets (which I bought from country baskets for about £3).
I then filled the buckets with sand to ensure the trees stayed in place.
Et voila! Some perfectly purple ribbon bay trees!
Most females commented on them throughout the day, so although they were time consuming-I must admit, they were totally worth it!
