Frugal Wedding Flowers

Here is an alternative to florist prices for flowers. While I don't have a photo I am sure you will get the idea! My son is getting married in April and the wedding is on the cheap. What I did for bouquets is the following: took a toilet paper roll and inserted Styrofoam to fit snugly. Then I inserted silk flowers on stems into the Styrofoam, arranged as needed, as well as, then inserted Baby's Breath and greenery under the flowers.

Then I wrapped the toilet paper roll with color coordinated ribbon (including the underside), pinned the end of the ribbon with pearl headed straight pins directly through the toilet paper roll into the Styrofoam. Viola! Instant bouquet! This takes about 15 minutes per bouquet and looks like a designer bouquet for pennies!

Love it! Where did you get the styrofoam? This is such a super idea. I am trying to picture if the styrofoam was rounded already or did you have to shape it somehow to get into the tube? This is an awesome money saving idea!
