Five Ways to Repurpose your Fabric Flower Bouquet

Reilly here. I’m a designer for Ragga Wedding, and I love making fabric flower bouquets. They’re fun and pretty to look at, and the finished product makes me really happy. Ragga Wedding creates wedding flowers that last forever. Because who wants to spend a bunch of money on something that will die the next day? If you’re considering fabric flowers for your wedding, you’ve come to the right place. We have so many pretty options for every bridal style, and we’re happy to customize something to make it unique. Fabric flowers are a great floral alternative to fresh blooms, but where should your forever flowers spend “forever?” Here are five ways to repurpose your bouquet once the wedding is over.

  1. Brighten up your desk and office space. Keep the bouquet where you’ll admire it every day. Make it the focal point of your desk or put it on a shelf in a simple vase to bring some life to your work space. It may even help inspire you when you’re in a creative rut.

  2. Make it the focal point of your kitchen table decor. Next time you host a dinner party, place a big bouquet in an ornate vase in the center of the table for an easy centerpiece. Surround it with tiny bud vases or candles to make it extra fancy.

  3. Regift it! Pass your flowers on to someone else who would enjoy them. It’s a small act of kindness, but it might be just the thing that person needs. Fabric flower bouquets make beautiful gifts for Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and just because. The best part is they last forever, so you’ll never be stuck with dead or rotting flowers if you forget to water them or put them in the sunlight for a few days.

  4. Turn a wedding bouquet into a family heirloom. Who knows, maybe one day your Ragga Wedding bouquet will be a bride’s “something old.”

  5. Use it as a photo prop. If you’re a photographer, blogger, or Instagrammer, turn your bouquet into a photo prop for styled shoots, home decor, or senior portraits. Fabric flowers photograph beautifully and you’ll get a lot of use out of them.

You can do whatever you want with a fabric flower bouquet. They’re virtually indestructible and make gorgeous home decor. I keep a bouquet on my desk at home to freshen up the space and make working there enjoyable. When I have company, I use it as a quick table centerpiece or coffee table accessory. I’m so proud of Ragga Wedding’s bouquets. They’re quality products and a beautiful addition to the Raggamuffin family. How would you repurpose your bouquet?

Hello World

raggaweddingJuly2017-45.jpg

Hi there! Thanks for taking a peek into our blog. I’m Reilly, and I’ll be writing about all things wedding. Before we jump on in, I wanted to take a minute, slow down, and introduce myself to you. After all, we’re going to be spending a lot of time together, and you ought to know who the person behind the post really is. I’m a Designer and Creative Director for Ragga Wedding, and I love art, writing, books, and traveling. I’ve been part of Raggamuffin since 2012, working my way from intern to professional blogger. (Dreams really do come true, my friend.)

These days I spend my time in the studio, fulfilling orders and designing new products; hanging out at local coffee shops blogging about weddings, and working behind the scenes on our social media accounts. When I’m not pursuing my dream career, I’m traveling, usually to a mountainous region, ancient forest, or waterfall. I love to seek hidden treasures and quiet moments in the wilderness.  I’m an obsessive hoarder of memories and photos, and I have way more pictures of sunrises and sunsets than any one person ever should. I am also a floral enthusiast. I occasionally work with fresh flowers, but fabric is where my heart truly lies. That's not to say I would ever turn down a bouquet of fresh blooms. I’m all about the unstructured, overgrown, wildflower style, so my work usually channels those elements with unexpected texture, color, and unique details.

Whether you are planning your own wedding, browsing for the future, or starting a family of your own, Ragga Wedding is here to share the very best ideas and inspiration for whatever season of life you are in. I'll be sharing wedding inspiration, behind the scenes previews, tips and tricks, and lots of DIY's for every bridal style, so be sure to tell me in the comments what you'd like to see featured. Cheers!
