I already had an overwhelming amount of color, so I didn't use colored tissue paper (although I would LOVE to see ones made like that!). Send me a picture of yours, because I think it is so cool to see how everyone executes the idea differently.

At first I tried the boutonniere pins that have the pearl at the end, but they were too bulky. I bought a pack of straight pins from the sewing section. They are about an inch and a half long with a small flat head. I also used glue with the pins, just to make sure it all stuck! Sorry for the confusion.
As far as storage, I put two each in a box and I plan on "fluffing" them when I need to use them. I also had a large one that I hung from a hook because it would totally be smashed in a box.

They are cream and white flowers (so they have the same colors as the coffee filters). I REALLY wanted to keep my bouquet after the wedding, so fake flowers seem to work best for that.

I am not using real flowers for my wedding either, and am doing something very similar to what you did here, except with tissue paper instead of coffee filters as a chair/aisle decoration. Love it!

The only problem I am having is how to get the ribbon & flowers to stay attached to the ball. What are these "floral pins" you speak of? I tried Googling it, but I got brooches with flowers on them instead of whatever it is that you're talking about! Help!

And also how to store without smashing… thoughts?
