    I'm planning on using it for our aisle. My mom is using napkins and folding them to make pockets that the baby's breath will sit in and they will line the pews of the church.

    I have been seriously considering DIY baby's breath for the bridesmaid's bouquets. I'm carrying a button bouquet made from some of my great-grandmother and grandmother's old buttons and I wanted something that would be make-ahead for the bridesmaids as well. Most people are like "What???" when I say that idea out loud, but they are generally open to the idea once they see pictures. Thanks for posting this great DIY alternative to "normal" flowers :-)

    • I love surprising people with non-traditional ideas! I'm sure your guests will love it when they see it! :)
