An Easter picnic in Paris practically screams for tissue paper flower pins. At least, that’s how I felt when getting ready for an Easter picnic in a park in the Marais last Sunday.
I happened to have a lot of leftover tissue paper from my Tex-Mex dinner party decorations, so I got busy making tissue paper flowers. It was an easy and relaxing project: cutting out flower-shaped layers, stapling them together and then fluffing out the resulting blossoms. I then used my hot glue gun to attach safety pins and (inspired by my recent daisy crown) bobby pins. I got so lost in the process that before I knew it I had made a mountain of flowers for a ten-person picnic…
There were many more flowers than people. They found their way onto clothes and into their hair, some picnickers being more enthusiastic than others.
The picnic was lovely, a happy afternoon spent with good friends.
