Unconventional Bridal Bouquets

What is an unconventional bridal bouquet?  In my view, a bouquet made out of paper, feathers, succulents, straw, wheat or whatever else isn't a bunch of long stemmed roses - that was unthinkable only 20 years ago.  Be proud to call yourself an unconventional bride.  A bride that loves red roses but would rather hold a bouquet of red and white origami flowers.  Cast aside the traditional belief that hydrangeas or tulips or cala lilies are your legacy - choose a beautiful bouquet that reflects your personality, your style, your taste.

Tea Party Centerpiece Ideas

What I love about these tea party centerpiece ideas is that vintage china teacups and teapots are downright cheap at thrift stores, church rummage sales and even on Etsy, where today I found an antique Victorian teapot, sugar and creamer set for only $22.  The creamer had a fine hairline crack - hardly noticeable - and the sugar bowl was missing its lid.  Three beautiful gold-rimmed china pieces with hand painted pink and burgundy flowers that would make three stunning tea party centerpieces for less than eight dollars each.
