So today I went to Ikea and Michaels and stocked up on $200 of materials. Ikea is awesome by the way…
The three larger rectangular vases were $4.99 and $6.99 for small/large. Then I got about 15lbs of crushed black rocks to fill them with, and I’m going to cut some branches off trees (similar to manzanita branches) and paint them white with black crystals and pink flowers. Haven’t gotten to that yet though…
Then I got the little cups also from Ikea for 6/$1.49. Super cheap!!! I will do the same thing for them, just in a smaller version.
The rectangular vases are for the head table and the guest book/card table, and then all the little ones will be for guest tables.
I ordered a bunch of pink silk rose heads from eBay that I’m waiting for, and those will go on my bouquet – along with black feathers and some sparkly crystals. The bridesmaids bouquets will be similar but a little bit smaller, and without any feathers or as many sparkles. I am going to pin the rose heads on the round styrofoam balls, and I made the handles out of wooden dowels (4 all taped together) with ribbon on top. I think I will have to make it shorter though.
What do you ladies think? Suggestions?
