They are adorable! Are those the colors you are using?

hmm.  Pretty arrangement but I think that container looks like a FTD or 1-800Flowers sent arrangement.  I am not the biggest fan.  Sorry 🙁

To be honest, they remind me of traffic cones.  I also think it depends on what color flowers you are doing.  If you are doing flowers in pink and yellow, I think having a colored container might be too much.

I like them-particularly for a spring wedding.

here’s what we did, they weren’t 100% perfect, and admittedly flowers/decor was low on my priority list but I was still fine with it.

If you plan to arrange them yourself be careful how short you cut the stems, and make sure you have more than enough flowers to fill the boxes. I think one of my bridesmaids had taken one of the larger blooms from the arrangement in the second picture to put in her hair and later in the evening my flowers generally were looking a little worse for wear. Certainly didn’t ruin my day and was a cheap option when I was looking to keep prices to a minimum in the decor department

@soontobeMrsA her tables are named after seattle neighborhoods!

@seattlemeg I LOVE the table names! Where did you get the skyline paper?

I like them!! Someone above said they thought it might be too much color with brightly colored flowers. If you feel that way, white vases would really make the flowers pop! I think they are alot of fun!!

It might just be the colors, but they remind me of easter. I think with the right tablecloth and little glass votives you could tone down the “easter” look. The kids one is too cute.

I guess I would still prefer larger glass vases with smaller pink/yellow votive holders around it, or linens in those colors with a neutral lace or sheer overlay. But hey, if you love them and they make you smile, go with it!
