I’m at my wit’s end! I cannot decide on centerpieces in one way or another. I am DIYing almost everything for my wedding, and this is the only thing that has cause me this much frustration! I was going to do mason jars with dried wildflowers. Ordered the dried florals, put a bunch together, and even though individually the flowers are really pretty, in bunches they look like dead plants lol
PLEASE HELP ME WITH IDEAS! Here’s some general details about my wedding & some guidelines:
1. July 2012 wedding,centerpieces needed for approx 30 tables
2. Tented, outdoor reception- kinda rustic/whimsical feeling
3. wedding colors are various shades of greens
4. No candles – reception begins at 3, and doesn’t get dark until 9 that time of year.
5. Want to make them ahead, so no fresh flowers
6. Tried making tissue paper flowers – easy but would need SOOO many & don’t have time to do it.
7. Have lots of mason jars, but don’t have my heart set on using them
So – I hope that doesn’t make me sound too picky or demanding, but I’ about to lose it here!! I have been scouring ideas/images online, but everything is starting to look the same to me. I’m open to any suggestions you might have!
Thank you!! 🙂

I made cake stands and we are using them with cupcakes on them as our centerpieces!

I intially wanted to use fish as a centerpiece but that could cause more trouble.

@LD333: fish is a cool idea for the right theme
We used books and scrabble tiles and a small vase of flowers. The books were fun–lots of people commented on their favorites sitting on different tables.
Frames with pictures?
Chandelier style candelabras with crystals rather than candles?
Vases full of various things–marbles, lemons, etc?

Yeah I second the fruit idea. What about tall, wide vases filled with green apples or limes?

Hm, what about teacups? Random pottery? Skinny vases with just a single paper or fabric flower? Mason jar full of beads/pebbles/silk flowers/ribbon/fabric?
