Unique Favor-Make Your Own Bouquets or Arrangements

What a creative idea for a bridal shower favor-Dynamite Weddings had the idea of a floral potluck. What is a floral potluck you ask? According to the website you put together an assortment of different flowers and place them all in lovely containers and large vases. We like the idea of keeping each flower separately, much like how candy is served at candy buffets. At the end of the shower, have items available so guests can create an arrangement for themselves. Every guest gets to leave with flowers!

What items should you have available? Try tissue paper, ribbons, or small vases for guests to use.

What flowers to have? To keep costs down, go for in-season flowers and look for farmer's markets or wholesale florists where you can buy the flowers in bulk. They suggest tulips, gerbera daisies, stargazer lilies, and roses.

Extra touch: Try writing down the name of each flower as well as the meaning of the flower on a notecard/placecard for an extra touch. Try for their extensive list of what flowers mean. For example, Bells of Ireland means Good Luck.
