I recently received a message from Tumblr user chaobabylinda asking me for examples of paper flower centerpieces or bouquets. This trend of “anything but flowers” has been growing like weeds, and is so incredibly popular with the DIY bride.

I love the idea of bouquets that are timeless as crisp paper or rolled fabric. But I also appreciate the obscure elements being used in centerpieces today. Here are some of my favorites:

1.) Cupcake Liner Pom Pomander

Aren’t these little poms so dreamy and vintage? They are so incredibly easy to make too! All you need are some colorful cupcake liners, pins, and a styrofoam ball!

Simply follow this tutorial from Kara’s Party Ideas and whip these little babies up at your next celebration!

2.) Charming Button Bouquets

These little bouquets are just the cutest! And the best part? They can be tailored to match any color scheme! Put your button flowers in some white vintage milkglass vases and doll them up with some pretty ribbon!

You can purchase these adorable bouquets on Etsy through KadyHope.

If you’re planning a holiday celebration, consider this take on the button centerpieces. Pin buttons to styrofoam trees and place them on a pretty pedestal!
