Photo and Item courtesy of ABespoke Touch's Shop

The artist describes these as "carefully created little cherry blossom flowers" that  "can be used to scatter on your wedding table for decoration, very sweet alongside tea lights. Perfect as a substitute for rose petals!
If you need something for your flower girl to carry in her basket these are ideal! Some venues won't allow you to scatter rose petals as they discolour and stick to carpets but these fabric flowers are perfect for scattering down the aisle!"

Contact the artist if you need different color combinations or different center beads. The item has matching jewellery, bookmarks, napkin rings, Invitations and other accessories. 10 flowers for $5. The artist recommends using "at least 30 flowers per table of 8-10 people, for my own wedding I used 30-50 per table and it seemed perfect." See web site for bulk discounts.
