Ok, so.. I had my own centerpiece crisis earlier this week!  And here’s what I found – Mrs Corn did something really cool with dune grass and sand (I guess she had a beach wedding!) but you can use different “ingredients” and get the same effect.  Here’s the link to her centerpieces http://www.weddingbee.com/2007/07/18/centerpieces-7/.  You can get different kinds of grass at the place Nettleton Hollow she talks about (just google it).  Maybe use some twisted willow, and of course you don’t have to use the candles.  I’m using a tall grass and twisted willow in 9″ cylinder vases, and instead of sand in the bottom, I am using dried peas (I know it sounds weird, but another bee used it in her centerpieces and it looks great! but unfortunately I didn’t save that link!!).  But you can play around with it a lot.  If I ever get around to taking a picture of what I’ve done I’ll try to send it to you!  Hopefully this helps.   Good luck!

Ooh, I think you could spray adhesive or hot glue the petals to the aisle runner… that would make cleanup soooo easy!

Also, what about battery operated candles? we’re thinking about using those b/c we can’t use candles.

What about plants or herbs? It would go with the barn theme…
