Hiding the Ugly Chandelier

When we were decorating for my daughter's baby shower, she asked us to "please hide that fugly chandelier!"  So, we decided to cover it in masses of flowers.  Huge tissue paper flowers. 

We didn't completely cover the chandelier, but maybe we were able to distract the eye a little bit?

At any rate, it was fun and festive.

Here's how we made them.

We used doubled layers of tissue paper to give the flowers a little more body, and to introduce a second color.

These flowers were very inexpensive to make, and definitely added a girly feel to the baby shower!
