In this shot it is showing you the different textures that look great next to lace. These items are vintage themselves and add more ivory then one would think possible. Top right are dried flowers for a soft centerpiece or bouquet.
I have thought about how darling it would be to hang from a large tree for a whimsy look. Or to actually keep the ivory or colored balloons and use lace to tie to the ends of them? Beautiful!
I officially have become obsessed and will be experimenting soon for an engagement shoot myself. Photos will be posted here.
How they work & what you need:
- standard sized balloons
- tape and string to hang them to dry
- about 1.5 yards of lace or doilies per balloon
- wallpaper glue
- paint brush to evenly distribute the glue
- a cheap plastic table cover. Some recommend newspaper but with delicate lace this could get dirty.
Hang them up with your string and tape the ends of the string to the butt of the balloon.
Use the glue on the back of the lace to apply it to the balloon.
Let stand and dry for half a day.
While holding the butt of the balloon (so you don't lose it) pop out the balloon and voila! a lace balloon ball!
Sometimes this could cave in just pop them gently back into shape.
