- Wedding: Frangipani Function room
Going to make these out of scrapbook paper with FI & my initials and table numbers. Toss them in a painted vase and surround with tea lights in small glasses of coffee beans. Might fill out the vase with some babies breath or daisies, not sure yet.
Aww that’s so sweet, beautiful idea 🙂
We are going with a slightly vintage theme, because we are big antiquers and that’s just generally our style.
Our centerpieces will be made up of different types of vintage bottles, milk glass, and some casual flowers (no roses, more a wildflower look… baby’s breath, hydrangea, peonies, allium, etc). The flowers wont be the main focus though. We’re also going to have little vintage trinkets on the tables too, hopefully they dont wall get stolen bc they’re from our personal collection.
I made these out of old pickle jars, disposable salad dressing cups, an LED tea light and some old cardstock scraps.
brinny04: Thanks 🙂 I just kind of made it up as I went (I’m cheap, so I wanted to use trash items lol). I was originally going to use them as table number holders, but then decided that they would make better centerpieces. I posted a tutorial here (feel free to PM me if you have questions) http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/terrarium-table-number-holders/#axzz34vgJFYfp
brinny04: They’re just 2 oz plastic cups that you get from take out places (usually for sauces or dressing). I think you might be able to find them at restaurant stores or maybe on amazon. You could even go to your local take out restuarant and ask them if they’d sell you a few (a Chinese restuarant near us uses them for pot sticker dipping sauce). You could also cut down a small paper dixie cup, really any disposable “cup” item around the house will probably work.
