I’m doing my own centerpieces… but we are using real flowers.  Intially though… my fiance and I were orginally planning on a winter wedding (we decided instead on a summer wedding outdoors)- and I had an idea to do a twig centerpiece as well.  If you look on the site http://www.save-on-crafts.com they have some really great branches.  I have a bridal magazine where the branches are placed in a moss and there are 4-5 orchids placed on the braches.  The braches then have one to strings on them of crystal’s. The srongs weren’t full of crystals… but maybe like 5 crystals per strand.  It was understated and very pretty.

hi!

my plan is to use these hurricane vases i found at bed bath and beyond.  i am replacing the shells and sand with coffee beans because like you, one of my colors is brown.  i am also wrapping brown ribbon around the top of the vase…  with the 20% off coupon, the coffee, and the ribbon it shouldn’t be more than 20 bucks per table when all is said and done.
