Pistachio

A design concept by Elaine Burns

Floral Garland

When my aunt asked me to help plan my cousin in law’s baby (girl) shower, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. The shower was planned for March - a month before her due date - and we agreed on a theme of a whimsical garden party.

Florals and delicate details were musts for styling. As a special add, I wanted to give the mom-to-be’s throne a unique touch.  

Since setting up my new Cricut machine, I have spent hours (yes, hours) combing through their Design Space; a resource for project ideas and templates. I’ve pinned several of my favorites, and for this occasion, I wanted to do something special with my favorite design element - flowers - so I opted for a colorful garland.

Using the machine was simple for this three-part project - pistil, petals, and leaves. I created 40 (!!!) complete flowers, making 2 garlands to hang.

The party was perfect - and the mix of both real and paper flowers added the feminine touch to the decor.
