Love Blooms

Love Blooms

The perfect theme for a Wedding Shower!

I am honored to be co-hosting a Wedding Shower for a very lovely young lady
and I wanted to show you how "Love Blooms"!

Thank you, Pinterest for so many wonderful ideas.
I saw lined invitation envelopes there and knew just what to do.

I had photographed masses of these zinnias at Dinges Farm

and thought they'd be perfect for a summer Wedding Shower.

I printed Zinnia photos out and pasted them onto photo mount cards.

Then I printed more flowers for the envelope linings.

I used regular printer paper for the liners
so they would be thin enough to fold easily.
It made a lighter, softer version of the photo that I really like.
I made a template, cut them to fit and pasted them inside.

I think they'll be so lovely to open...

For favors, we'll pass out dainty little packets with labels I printed for them, 
filled with Zinnia seeds.
They are actually just little Kraft paper envelopes from Hobby Lobby.

Now, I need to fill them with Zinnia seeds....

A day or two before the shower, we'll grab the Bride to Be and her Mom 
and go to Dinges Farm and cut a million Zinnias together.
How much fun will that be? 

We'll decorate all of the tables with them.
There will be Zinnias everywhere!
Can you picture it?

The guests will also be able to take little bouquets of fresh Zinnias home as favors
And they'll have their very own Love Blooms!

Isn't that Just Grand?

  1. Can I put you in my pocket and keep you there for always?
    Love what you created . . .
    The best part, you created those invites, envelope liners . . . YOU, yes you did it . . .
    And the visual dream of a roomful of zinnias . . . I can't wait to see the pictures.
    No doubt about it . . . Just*Grand . . .

  2. You did it again! Brilliant! So classy. I remember when we visited Dinges. The shower will be gorgeous with all the zinnias. I planted again this year and my zinnias are just aboutready to pop. I live the lime green with pink centers! from the will be gorgeous. Could it be for Kim's daughter? Thanks for a great post!

  3. Oh yes I can picture that! I have zinnias in my front flower bed that were planted from seeds. They are the best flowers ever for cutting. Your note cards are gorgeous.
