My FH was the one who went to check the florist for my centerpeices prices and what can I say besides its wayyyy too expensive.. even the simpler styles cost a lot.
I would like to get ideas of DIY centerpieces for my elegant venue. Any ideas on what to do…?

Mine were around $5 each, I did them with silver bowls from thrift shops and dollar tree flowers, in the candle light you almost can’t tell they are not real (from what I am told and maybe they were being nice, but I will take it). I am mixing up the candles, as you can see in the background, I bought most of them at the 90% off sales at hobby lobby.

Mine were probably about $10 each, though The big bowls were the biggest expense. We wound up actually coloring the water blue, but this is the gist of what we did. The bamboo are read and the orchids are silk. Hope this helps give you some ideas. Good luck.

I had 2 different centerpieces. The first ones were the more expensive ones because I couldn’t find delft blue shoes in any of the local thrift shops, or on ebay, so I ended up ordering them from an online store. At $12-13 each, they weren’t *expensive* but they weren’t as cheap as they could have been. 😛
My 2nd type of centerpieces I came up with when I realized that I might not have enough of the 1st ones because of an expanding guest list. However, I had extra supplies left over from the first ones, that I was able to utilize in the 2nd ones, so the cost was much cheaper at $5.50-$6.50:
The frames used in both centerpieces came as a 2 pack from the 99 cent store (one big and one little in each pack). The hydrangea used in the 2nd centerpiece were fresh flowers that were left over from our personal flowers and so were at no extra cost. The roses in the 1st centerpiece are wooden roses ordered off of ebay. I LOVED the wooden roses! All the vases – milk glass and blue ones – were bought at Goodwill and ranged from .99 – 2.99. The vases are the reason that the prices are a range rather then exact. lol

We are having mini cupcakes for ours. We will put them on simple platters. Nothing fancy. Cute and fun! The total cost will be about $350 with cupcakes and platters.
