Before you start asking why it says balls in the title, calm down! It's nothing dirty!
Ever since I did a garden design course at university (I do architecture) I fell in love with flowers shaped as balls. Either the whole flower, each petal, the leaves, or the whole plant itself!
There are many "do it yourself" ideas which don't have to be very expensive, although as with anything you decide to do yourself, time consuming compared to buying them straight away.
|The flower balls can either be used as table decoration, or aisle decoration as shown on the picture. Chose a flower that has colours that go in your overall colour theme!|
|A cute banner in the background for photos. Either behind the newlyweds, on the present table, or as you enter the reception area.|

|Allium is one of my favorite flowers. It comes in white, lilac and blue.|

|Rice lanterns create a lovely effect for outdoor weddings! They are quite cheap to buy and if you keep your eyes open perhaps someone who has just gotten married is selling theirs off cheaply!|
