FINALLY! After months and months of tossing around different ideas and battling through DIY project after DIY project we have finally figured out our centerpieces. Origionally we wanted centerpieces made with mason jars or milk jars. We wanted something that was casual and somewhat western without looking completly informal. After a while, we came up with this idea!
They are made with buckets (that I found on sale at Hobby Lobby), then we took the flower foam and placed it in the bottom of the bucket, we placed 1 dozen rozes (bought at the grocery store so not the best quality), and then in the center we placed garden lights that are solar powered. So once the sun sets, the lights will light up the tables. We are also going to have black table cloths and white tulling around the buckets. We are probably going to also put little rinestones around the tulling to add a little sparkle.
Oh my goodness these were so cheap and easy to make and they are JUST what I was looking for!
What are you doing for centerpieces? I love seeing all of the Bee’s ideas!

Cute idea and very creative. I would just shorten the roses so they cluster closer to the top of the bucket.

Yeah thats what I was thinking… The roses are cut at a weird length in this picture. Thats what trial runs are for I guess 🙂

Love the idea though! I might steal it for a patio party this summer.

I agree about cutting the roses shorter, but nonetheless, what a unique idea! I love it! I bet its even prettier lit up.

@FutureMrsMcDermott: Thanks! I was really wanting something unique, yet would follow our western, ranch wedding.
@Kate2012: My mom came up with the idea for the lights. They are going to be so amazing when it gets dark and they light up the tables! I’m so excited 🙂

That’s super cute! I love that the light is solar and automatic, that’s so nice 🙂
It looks good how it is, but maybe a variety of flowers would look good too, if you’re using other kinds of flowers in your wedding
