Hi Bees! I’m a bit of a nanna at heart, and am renowned for my hoarding of vintage silverware. I thought my wedding a great chance to put my collection to work – this is my first mock up. Each table will be different, which i think adds to the charm. My wedding is in a casual/modern venue with ocean views – i thought it best to keep it simple. The actual arrangements will fit a little better – and I will probably need to use fake tealights as the silverware heats up with real flames.
Please forgive my stand-in white table cloth – apparently the closest thing I have is a manchester underlay!
Ive just got to think of a way to bring a pop of aqua in…

@MrsDinosaur: I think its very pretty and will look great! its not too big, just make sure you let guests know its not a take-home centrepiece or you might end up sad losing part of your collection

I think they look really nice!!
Maybe for a pop of aqua you could find some sort of vase filler/gems in the appropriate aqua shade, and place a few in the bottom of the vase?

Really pretty, great that you get to use a little bit of you.
Can you tie an aqua ribbon round your vase?
Im doing jam jars with a mix of flowers in some and candles in others, they are all being decorated with lace and ribbon, the ribbon in our two wedding colours.
It might work with you too.

I love it, but I agree that you need to make it clear to guests that they shouldn’t take them home.
Martha Stewart makes glass paint that could work as your touch of aqua, you could paint a band around the top of the candle holders (or bottom?)

Thanks everyone! the ribbon is a great idea! I was also thinking of DIYing some paper paper flowers balls (they look better in my head than i make them sound). HOPEFULLY it should be ok with time take-home thing… i know some cultures its expected, but in Aus it generally doesnt happen. 🙂
