Flower Girl Cone à la Dior

Want a sophisticated and romantic color palette for a wedding with a twist of Dior haute couture? How about champagne, nude with a hint of blush, and black?

It's soft and ethereal with a touch of class.



I was commissioned by an Etsy customer to create this sweet custom flower girl "basket." This is the third custom project for this glamorous bride-to-be preceeded by six fabric flower pins for the wedding cake and a custom ring pillow~ all made with the same decadent fabrics. Initially, I had not planned to line the cone, but upon speaking with my mom regarding the design plans, I learned that lining a cone is much easier than not lining it.
This soft brushed satin lining, in my opinion, really makes this petite cone so rich and feminine.
I can just imagine a sweet little flowergirl's hand carrying this flower {basket} as she is escorted by a cute ring bearer holding the matching pillow. If only I could catch a glimpse of those two walking down the aisle!

A little sidenote to my new weddings à la parisienne followers:
I don't plan to double feature the same subjects between my main blog and this blog. I had already shared the ring pillow everyone on the main blog and wanted to share the cone as well. This blog is intended to share different content than my main blog, so no need to worry.
