Accessorizing with Ribbon Flowers
Using vintage-inspired blooms to decorate a cake, attendants' attire, and more.
Text by Heidi Cho
"These blooms are an easy way to add style to your wedding. Use them in the décor or to accessorize -- ribbon flowers can blossom just about anywhere.
"Ribbon flowers offer much of the same beauty as real flowers but without the inevitable wilting. Today, ribbon flowers are seeing a revival in contemporary fashion. The ideas on these pages are inspired by the designs of vintage ribbon flowers, yet they are very suited to modern tastes. Notions, sewing, and crafts stores offer the widest selection, with styles ranging from dainty rosettes to large, soft peonies."
