Bow Bouquets for a Rehearsal Dinner

Life was really busy for me after BFF's wedding and these pictures were taken but forgotten during our move.  I made "Bow-quets"  for the rehearsal dinner using bows from her shower gifts and I had so many that I made mini versions for the bridesmaids to use.  The rehearsal went by so quickly I didn't get a photo of us using them but I wanted to give credit to another blogger who has wonderful instuctions on how to make these.

I was so fortunate that Caitlin posted "How to Make a Bow Bouquet" back in March.  I saw several instructions online for different variations but her drawings were so clear.  And they were definitely prettier than the bows taped to a paper plate idea.  I will say, it's easier to make these with another set of hands.  I was fortunate that R could hold the bows together while I worked.  Here is the finished product:

I wanted to use all white but that gold bow was so sparkly and pretty I just tucked it in the bottom.
