I love Paper Source. They have the neatest products and ideas. I found this while wondering around on their site. So adorable for a bridal shower, reception, or even a baby shower!

Paper Source paper rosettes

From Paper Source’s site:

Paper Decorations: Rosettes


These paper decorations are so easy to make and work wonderfully as party decorations for any event. Use lovely paper rosettes as bridal shower decorations hanging above a serving table or gift table. Hang from tree branches at a summer dinner party or use as wedding decor. Match any theme by using solid color paper or try fun prints, and make multiple sizes for a fun grouping.

To personalize, print or rubber stamp a picture, name, monogram or date onto circle labels and attach to the center of each rosette. Make small ones to hang from the back of chairs for seating.

See our blog for instructions to make paper rosettes in multiple colors.

  1. Download the Paper Rosette How-to PDF which has reference drawings to help you.
  2. Each rosette requires 3 sheets of paper. Accordion fold each sheet of paper lengthwise at 3/4″ intervals (Figure A on the PDF).
  3. Take one accordion and adhere the ends of one side by folding it in half. Stick together with super tacky tape (Figure B on the PDF). Repeat for all three accordions.
  4. Connect the three accordions together at the remaining exposed edges with tape, forming a circle (Figure C on the PDF).
  5. Punch a hole and thread ribbon to hang (Figure D on the PDF).

Bunting has been every where for the last year or so. It is so cute, chic, and really really easy. There are several ways to do it. One way is obviously with fabric but if you don’t have access to a sewing machine I would not suggest this option. It can be very time consuming and fabric can be expensive depending on how much bunting you need. I found this great tutorial over on MyWeddingDay and thought I would share it with you! They used scrapbook paper and ribbon both of which are really budget friendly!

“My bridal shower at Wedding 101 was absolutely perfect! The best way to sum it up would be with one word: effortless.  The ladies at Wedding 101 took every measure to ensure that I didn’t have to worry about one thing leading up to the shower or even the day of the shower. The cupcakes and champagne were perfect and all my friends loved it!
