This is the Tord Boontje garland lamp (it comes packaged flat – it’s designed to go around a light bulb). We cut it up and used pieces in the invites, in the floral arrangements, the seating plan and some on the bride’s and groom’s place setting.

Decorative flourishes using the Tord Boontje garland add a nice touch as part of the pins attaching the guest seating plan to the cork board. (Note the inclusion of the French Provincial Material used in the design.)
Take a found decorative element that can be adapted to the event you’re designing.
Using a dozen white metal lanterns generously donated by another bride from her wedding, we spray painted them gold (make sure you do this in a well ventilated area).

For a bit of novelty/drama, tip your lantern over on a table and have flowers flowing out.
