- Wedding: August 2012
I was really happy how our DIY centerpieces came out:
mirror squares from Ikea: 4 for $10
potted plants from Ikea with pots: $6 for the pots and $10 for the plants.
poseable dolls from an art store, but Ikea sometimes sells them: $5 each
Silver elastic to tie the signs to the dolls: a couple dollars.
2-sided picture frames from Ikea with photos of our parents’ weddings (one set of parents on each side): $1 each plus the cost of getting the photos developed.
Total per table: $25 each.
The tablecloths were 120 inch cornflower satin overlays (nothing underneath).
The guests enjoyed taking home the plants. We had 2 kinds of plants: elephant palms and Lady Jane. The guests took 6 of the 7 elephant palms and 3 of the 7 lady janes. They also enjoyed the wooden figures. We donated the mirror squares along with our tablecloths to a religious free-lending society that helps people have weddings.
