Read about all my other Happy Mondays here
I never thought I would say this but flowers are making me extremely happy on this very Monday. A few years ago I could not have cared less for a bouquet of flowers but somehow this has changed and now its like the best suprise gift ever that I could receive.
Over the weekend 9 of us (good friends, my sister and Albrecht and I) met to prepare for our wedding in June and because I had been sick during the week two friends brought me flowers! So sweet and the best start into the weekend! And oh so fitting.
For whatever reason I thought it would be a fun and good idea to do and make paper flowers for our wedding. It pretty soon occured to me that I must have been crazy to think that this would be a good idea but let me tell you IT WAS SO WORTH IT!!!
The 9 of us made almost 200 flowers and they turned out to be SO BEAUTIFUL. None of us had any experience in making them but we soon figured it out and that they all different and a little unique makes it even better.
It was a ton of work!! For 2 days almost constantly at least 5 people were crafting but oh how it was worth it.
We have the absolute best of friends. I think we all were pretty amazed by how good they turned out. We were constanly in awe of one particular flower until we saw the next one and were just as in awe!!
We will use them for our table decoration at our wedding and will put them in bouquets simular to the one above and add a little greenery. I can not wait!!
We were all suprised how good they turned out and then we were amazed by the shear amount of flowers we managed to make in this short amount of time, but we were all the absolute most suprised by how good Albrecht was at crafting paper flowers! He made some of the most beautiful flowers out of all of them. Pretty impressive I must say!
These paper flowers did not only make me, suprisingly, were happy over the weekend while crafting them but make me smile and very happy on this Monday and will continue to do so for the longest time!!!
Hoping you are having a very happy Monday!
Lots of love,
