Floral Wall Hangings

If you want more of a high-impact decoration for your bridal shower, try going for a floral wall hanging instead. You can make floral wall hangings in a variety of styles. If you want a wall hanging that is a little bit more natural and bohemian, start out with a tree branch, and attach threaded florals, creating a curtain of stringed flowers. If you want a dramatic statement, you can make a wall hanging monogram, or a series of letters that spells something out like “bride” or “I do.”

One trend that has exploded in popularity over the past few years is the balloon arch trend. Balloon arches can have a great entrance or framing effect on the space where you’ll be hosting your party at. They’re also great for establishing the color scheme of your event. You can DIY  a balloon arch quite easily by buying a bunch of balloon arch set and a pump. You’ll just tie the balloons the arch form as you go, making sure to spread out your colors evenly.

If you have really specific colors that you’re trying to use, try using wood flowers, since they have colors that match any style.

Floral Garland

Sure, you see a lot of evergreen garlands around Christmastime, but have you ever considered decorating your house with a floral garland during the spring or summer? Whether your bridal shower will be hosted inside or outside, you’ll be able to spruce up the space with a stunning floral garland. If you’re going for more of a minimalistic floral garland, try threading some artificial flowers on a string, spacing them out for a dried flower look. If you want something more dramatic and high impact, gather your flowers together in large bunches and position them together so they cover the area that you want to place the garland on. You might even want to use some chicken wire or floral foam to hold your flowers in place if you know it will end up being a large garland. If you use artificial flowers, this will be a beautiful summer decoration that you’ll be able to use time and time again.

Hanging Arrangements

If you want more hanging floral arrangements than just a chandelier, you’re in luck. There are so many creative ways to create hanging floral arrangements that will look beautiful indoors or outdoors. If you want something more simplistic, try using bud vases, vintage glass bottles, or even old lightbulbs as mini vases. Tie a string securely around the tip of them, and then place your flowers inside. Then hang these makeshift vases around your area. The light will catch the glass, making a sparkly effect. If you want something a little big bigger, try adding flowers to lanterns or birdcages and hang them up with some pretty vintage rope. If you want a hands-on craft, you can buy some floral foam balls and stick flowers into them until they’re completely covered. In addition to being inexpensive and fun to make, these hanging floral balls will look fun and unique.
