Lemon Leaf Garland DIY

My recent Project Wedding Post just went live. Lemon Leaf Garland might be my favorite thing to decorate with. It makes everything instantly feel so festive. A florist will charge around $12/foot for this stuff but I made this 14 foot garland for $16. It takes a few hours but if you had some extra hands to help it goes quickly and is very straight forward. See all the instructions here.

Chairs + Linens etc from our friends at Abbey Party Rents.

    Jordan, this is gorgeous! My parents have lots of citrus trees in their backyard…I'm definitely going to try this w/ some of the leaves.

    I LOVE this. I'm such a sucker for citrus after growing up in California. I can smell the fresh scent already!

    Quick Question! Would the optional wired florist stakes be used to actually stick through the firmer fruit such as an apple…if firmer fruit are used (as opposed to citrus)? Love this project idea!

    I've used apples before and thought the stakes worked better.

    Jordan, FYI The silverware placement is BACKWARDS! Spoon/knife go on right, forks on left.

    Yeah anon I know. We were trying to get some shots in before it got too dark and I didn't double check.

    Also, thanks for pointing out flaws.

    I'm totally making this for my wedding next month. How many lemon leaves do I need (bunches? dozens?)? And how long will it stay? I would love to make it as ahead of time as possible. Thanks!
