- Wedding: October 2011
Ok ladies!!! So here’s my branch story: I got all my branches(which I LOVEEE and got for super cheap from ebay). The seller’s name is deywon and he was WONDERFUL. His branches were great, shipping was free, and fast. I ordered on the 20th and received them today (the first). I ordered the 18-24 inch branches, and got 2 orders of 40 branches each and it was about 270 dollars for all of it. so I have 80 total. I need to make a total of 25 centerpieces (big wedding) and two big ones for my head table (which is a long 20 person table). So far I am using 3 per centerpiece but some will only need 2. His branches are mostly pretty sizeable and substantial. For the head tables Im using about 4 per, maybe 5,bc i want them to be a statement piece. For decorating them I’m going with 2 different styles: a crystal tree (crystal garland, and crystal drops) and one with Christmas balls (i took smaller gold ones and layered them inside the bigger, clear fillable ones for dimension). All the trees will have hanging votives, and a few perserved orchids. I left the branchs in their natural color, bc i loved it. Not a fan of spray painting them. I did spray my bases, which are cheap flower pots i got from dollardays.com. it was 60$ for 36 of them. I just sprayed em w metallic pain, slapped a bow on and called it a day. In the pics I used tissue paper to fill the top in, but I’ve sinc replaced it with the tan colored spanish moss which was a buck a bag at dollar tree. I’ll post pics of the final ones when I get everything figured out. I still have some tweaking to do…on to the pics! Oh, and disregard the “table numbers” lol…I just needed something there to kinda represent the ones I’m hoing to have. I know its pretty bootleg!
Yeah…thats supposed to be a “1” on a table number. Lol…Its just computer paper w/ a tealight dropped in so I could get the full effect.
