Flower chandeliers are such a fun and pretty statement piece and make the perfect addition to any venue space to spruce up the ceiling and help in making the area appear larger. So we thought we would put together this little DIY project to show you how you can make your very own floral chandelier. And best of all? It will last forever using silk flowers, here’s how…
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
Silk flowers and foliage
Wire chandelier base
Flower tape or a hot glue gun
Twine [or something to hang the chandelier up with]
STEP 1: begin by cutting and separating he foliage that you want to fill the base with and tape them to the wire piece with floral tape [or glue]. You can use one type of foliage or you can use a mixture for the base. Do this all the way around until it is robust and full.
STEP 2: add in some green accents on the bottom to create a dangling effect, for example, heather bush or ferns. On the top use greens such as hops that will give dimension and texture to the chandelier.
STEP 3: your focal flowers [the larger ones] should be cut so that they are about 2 inches long on their stem and tape or glue them onto the chandelier where you like. They look best when bunched/placed together as shown above.
STEP 4: finish by adding your accent flowers all around the edges then add your twine. It is best if you tie them in a triangle shape to evenly distribute the weight of the chandelier. Don’t forget to consider how and where it will hang before you measure the length of twine– ties around a beam? Nailed in?
How pretty right? Take a look below at some other ideas to inspire you…

Sophisticated polka dots are literally everywhere on Pinterest at the moment. From playful tulle prints to feminine and subtle Swiss dots, polka dots are most definitely a fresh idea to consider. The best thing about this trend is that it can be incorporated into almost any element of your wedding from wedding dresses and veils, to tablescapes, stationery, cakes… You get the drift! Off pinks and creams characterise the look, with a splash of mod black here and there. It's fun, it's flirty and it's so easy to create yourself, so join us as we sprinkle some irresistible fun into wedding style...
Keep your look fresh and fun by mixing up your elements of polka dots and poms poms - swap a uniform look for circles in different sizes, colours and textures! A sprinkling of polka dots throughout the fashion, from the veil to the groom's socks, are a fashion forward way to keep your theme consistent [although try not to go OTT or you may end up more dalmation than dashing.]

Invite your guests to join you for a sophisticated, elegant and kid free wedding reception. Cocktail lounges are elite and beautiful, romantic and special. We think they make for the perfect venue, with lounges, catering and music. Undeniably non-traditionally we love the style and class associated with a cocktail lounge venue.
Create a unique reception concept and program, cake cutting and
speeches on arrival? This will allow guests to party the night away.
Perhaps have a designated lounge area for parents and bridal party,
playing off the tradition of the bridal party table.
Slip into something a little more fun and sexy for the reception. A wedding gown in a cocktail lounge might get a little hot and not be the most comfortable choice. Gold sequins have always been a fan of ours, or somehting like this gorgeous, white flowing dress is very pretty and appropriate.
