Lovely!!  Maybe you could put some kind of jewel in the middle, or maybe a miniature version of those tissue paper poms?

I’m doing the exact same thing, same colors and everything just different shade. I found tiny pom poms to shove in the middle of the same color of my flowers. Some i will leave and some i will cover with a gem as the pom pom will give me a base to glue to. Did u use a styrofoam ball? How did you finish the part you hold?

your flowers look so much prettier than mine ): idk what i’m doing wrong. what size paper are you using? & for the center i’ve been putting buttons cause that’s part of my theme but i agree with the jewel thing!

buttons, jewels, circle of lace, pom-poms… Honestly I’d go wander around a craft store (take a coupon) and see what’s there. There are millions of little doo-dads in every shape size and color, so see if you find something that just seems to fit with your wedding.

@tbskelly:  I actually took paper in the same prints and rolled it up & used that as my centers. I’ve seen buttons & jewels but those didn’t fit with the look I was going for. And I also used extra floral wire I had and wrapped along the “handle” as I added flowers to help keep them in place. It was kind of a pain but I otherwise had alot of issues keeping them in the shape I wanted.
