Paper Bag Bouquets


On the first day of first grade, a teacher asked us to all go around and say our favorite color. Every girl said pink. Every boy said blue. Except for me and one other little one. We said green. Needless to say, this was not a good way to become a cool kid. But the point of the story is, I've always loved GREEN. Going green, being green, wearing green. 

So when my fabulous friend sent me a picture of birthday bouquet (happy bday EK!), which she had cleverly placed in a brown paper bag, I was like SCORE! What an awesome decor idea. Below, the original inspiration, and several other eco-chic bag ideas:

  1. Oh Kim this is such a simple and cute idea that I am so thrilled you reminded me of! Just love the clean, green simplicity of it all...not to mention that it's just darn cute too!!!


  2. I am the same. My sister always dresses her little girls in pick and I'm the auntie who always buys them green clothes or basically ANY. OTHER. COLOUR!!! Love everythign green!

  3. What wonderful and different idea. A great idea for table centerpieces or to give as gifts.
