PUTTING IT TOGETHER One of the nicest parts of weddings is all the beautiful flowers. So why not dress up your gift to the bride and groom with a few blossoms of your own? A boutonniere like this peach carnation one by my friend Tina Riddell at Living Fresh would make a fetching gift topper (I typically think of carnations as being a pretty cheesy flower, but not here!). Carrying on with the floral theme for this gift wrapping concept are an illustrated card by Rifle Paper Co. and an embossed pearlized paper, which when combined with lacy velvet ribbon creates an overall antique-style look.
