Flowers are a must when it comes to spring and summer events, but the real deal can get pricey! In fact, for an average wedding, between $1,000 and $2,000 is spent on flowers for the ceremony alone. DIY paper napkin flowers are a great alternative that add color, dimension, and beauty to any event. The best part is that you save money. A package of 50 cocktail napkins costs a little less than $2. So there is great news: even if you plan to decorate with a bunch of paper napkin flowers, you are going to be spending much less than you would on fresh flowers!
In addition to being affordable, paper flowers can be used in many different ways at your event. Paper flowers look great as decor on the back of chairs, on chair bands or chair sashes, as a table runner, wall art, on top of gifts, etc. The possibilities are endless!
So now that you’ve decided how you want to use paper napkin flowers at your event, here is how to make them:
After you have fluffed your paper flowers to your heart’s desire, it’s time to decorate! We wrapped our Mother’s Day gifts with fun paper napkins and topped them off with ribbon and the paper flowers. We also sprinkled some flower napkins around the presents to add more color and festiveness.
But why stop there? Adding paper napkin flowers to each place setting at your event is a great way to incorporate an elegant, signature touch. The best part is that the paper flowers are beautiful and usable during your meal.
