These tulips won't wilt on the big day, and they make for delightful place names, too!

TABLE PLANNING

Begin with a square piece of paper. Fold the paper in half four times (unfold after each time) to make four creases , one going horizontally, one vertically, and two diagonally across the paper.

Fold the paper in half again to make a triangle, which will have three creases in it. Fold in the two creases nearest the base to make a diamond.

Cut the paper into a petal shape. Make a hole where all the lines meet in the middle, and place a piece of gardening wire with a loop at one end through it. Fold a piece of green paper in half and cut out a leaf shape across the fold, giving you two leaves.

Write a guests name on it and glue the leaf around the wire.
