We couldn’t help but sift through some of the amazing and creative ideas that you can follow and do at home. We also have a few of our favourite cocktails and Etsy round-ups thrown in for good measure!

FRAGRANT MINI HERB WREATH TUTORIAL

If you’re keen to incorporate your setting decorations and bonbonniere gifts together, these fragrant handmade mini herb wreaths tick all the boxes. Simple enough to weave together just before the big event and adding rustic garden appeal to your table, scented foliage twisted into a sweet knot is the perfect way to show your beloved guests just how special they are!

MINI FLOWER POSIES FOR WEDDING FAVOURS TUTORIAL

A lot of love and care goes into planning gifts for guests at weddings or bridal showers. If you’re adorning your event with lush flowers, why not add to the theme and gift a small posy to each guest? A small bouquet can be made in your chosen theme colours and personal favourite blooms and is a gorgeous gift to take home and beautify a space.

ETSY ROUNDUP – BOUQUET MEMENTO IDEAS

COCKTAIL FRIDAY – THE AGRARIAN KITCHEN EATERY’S ‘BRIDGEWATER JERRY’

Based in New Norfolk, Tasmania, The Agrarian Kitchen Eatery can host wedding or engagement feasts for 15 up to 98 people made from the freshest local produce. They partner with nearby producers for just about everything that ends up on the plate – or in the glass – and they have their own farm nearby from which to source ingredients. There’s a cooking school at the farm too. Taking a class is a lovely, bonding thing to do together while on honeymoon! The two-hatted, naturally lit eatery itself is just the place in which to celebrate for bridal couples who are seriously serious about good food.

COCKTAIL FRIDAY – GIN LANE’S HIBISCUS & ROSE PETAL FIZZ

Love their blooming beauty or hate their ubiquitous-ness, roses are a classic symbol of love and romance! So we couldn’t let ‘The Bouquet Issue’ go by without a cocktail ode to a good old fashioned posy of roses. Master mixologist Grant Collins of Sydney bar Gin Lane comes to the party with this at-home version of his perfectly pink Hibiscus & Rose Petal Fizz cocktail.

EASY LOVE STORY WALL HANGING AND FOLIAGE CHANDELIER TUTORIAL

Proposal stories are some of our favourite stories! If you can’t stop sharing how your beloved asked you to be their’s forever, why not add your story to your decor? I love an easy DIY, and this is exceptionally easy! A beautiful way to spread the love, with a sneaky wee DIY for a foliage chandelier thrown in!
