CHIC FARMERS MARKET FLOWER CART | WEDDING TRENDS

CHIC FARMERS MARKET FLOWER CART | WEDDING TRENDS

A country chic wedding and guest favor idea that features hand tied flower bouquets.

It can be a struggle to come up with an idea for a guest favor, and although we adore the idea of charitable giving in your guests' name en lieu of a favor, sometimes it's nice to say thank you by actually give something to the people who have provided well wishes and monetary support and gifts to you.

We dreamed up this sweet little collaboration with Posies By Patti and Milk House 24 to show you a parisian flower cart with a country chic twist that we think you would be thrilled to have at the entrance to your wedding or shower.  

Patti's flower selection and the lovely hand lettered signage by Chelsea is a pinkish rustic wedding or shower palette dream come true.

The flower cart works easily as a station for guests to bundle their own bouquets to take home and enjoy, or perhaps as an end of the night flower station where the flowers from your table arrangements could be distributed to guests as they walk out the door.  These flowers are wrapped in paper and tied with hand crafted muslin milk painted ribbon from Milk House 24.  It's not just a thoughtful gift, but also a way to repurpose those flowers and let them bring joy to others for an additional few days.

We absolutely love this idea! It's a wedding trend we want to see moving into 2018 and beyond in the Rust Belt Region.  And that means YOU Pittsburgh, Youngstown, and Erie!
