Introduction

To send a newly married couple on their way from the ceremony to the reception, there are plenty of creative variations on rice. Martha Stewart Living Weddings Editorial Director Darcy Miller suggests giving guests rose petals to toss -- not only a beautifully scented flower, but one that traditionally symbolizes love.

The cone-shaped doilies can be made in advance, simply fill them with rose petals a few hours before the ceremony; have your bridesmaids help.

Materials

  • Doilies, or other decorative paper
  • Utility knife
  • Sticker or tape
  • Rose petals

Steps

  1. Step 1

    To make the cones, cut 12-inch doilies into quarters with a utility knife.

  2. Step 2

    Roll the paper into cones, and seal with a sticker or tape. Stand the cones in a tissue-paper-lined box.

  3. Step 3

    Fill the cones with fresh rose petals a few hours before the ceremony. You'll need one opened rose for each cone.
