This is my ROUGH draft.  It is a bowl glued to a candle stick also and I just love it.  I couldn’t find something that I liked so I made my own up.

This is also my mock-up. I wanted silk flowers in square glass vases. I decided on silk flowers because I figured a centerpiece this size of real flowers (and of the kinds of flowers I wanted) would cost twice as much.

I’m planning for us to have long, rectangular tables at the reception, so I’ll have these floral centerpieces; I’d like to have them on turquoise pintuck satin table runners, with orange and turquoise votive candleholders scattered on the tables:

flowers from farmers market, mason jars from my gram’s barn, and we bought some ribbon to add a little something extra to them

I bought different vases at thrift stores (wouldn’t go higher than $2 each) and bought flowers wholesale. It was very easy, just cut them and plop them in the vase.

This is also a rough draft :). I’m going to use teal glitter to put the table numbers on the candles instead of the raffia ribbon. The block lights up, but it doesn’t photograph well when it is, so it’s not on in the photo. I’m considering putting it on either gold fabric or a mirror.

The ‘mock’ picture is what we did for the guest tables, with real roses and  blue delphinium. It’s a little off though. You have to imagine that id there were the orange roses inside there were blue candles, and with the blue flowers there were orange candles. 

There is supposed to be a candle in the center, but for some reason it didn’t make it into this picture.


The actual wedding picture is the centerpiece that was on our table.

Mine are a work in progress, I actually just did this yesterday.  I decided to use rose petals,  vintage birdcages and candles.  In this pic I just used whatever candles I had on hand and some dried rose petals my mom had handy.


It turns out I will not be able to use both birdcages on each table because of the space they take up, I will have to split them up.  For the bigger birdcage, I will use two different size candles (this pic shows 2 of the same size), and then use real rose petals sprinkled aorund it. 

I sitll need to come up with a slightly different idea for the smaller birdcage, where I’m thinking of using candles to put on either side of it and fill a bowl with floating rose petals to put inside the bird cage. 

Any ideas/suggestions are welcome =)

P.S the birdcages are from saveoncrafts.com

my mom made this! The real versions will have real sunflowers and the blue in the vase will be stones or seaglass (right now its just paper to give you the effect).
