Fabric and paper flowers are so elegant. Whether on a boutonniere or in your hair. A long time ago I made about 30 or 40 tissue paper flowers for Lily's first birthday. I gave them to all the girls who wore them in their hair. So classy. I wish I had a photo to share with you but I'd have to dig through my old cds.
Martha Stewart has some really fantastic paper and fabric tutorials that would work for any party, wedding or everyday extra touch to your outfit.
Some of my most favorites that are totally special occasion worthy:
PomPom Car Decoration
Dahlia Bobby Pin Hair piece
Fabric Rose and Peony
Shaped Crepe Flowers
Ribbon Flower Boutonniere
