DIY Centerpieces?!

Yes, I said it... we are doing DIY centerpieces.

I wasn't planning on this originally, but once I found my vases, it all just fell into place. My fabulously creative mother is actually the one who put them together. We are still trying to figure out what candle to use in the center, but without further ado, here they are:

The green fabric that you see on the table is a swatch of the fabric from our bridesmaid dresses. The vases are HUGE champagne glasses. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I still can't decide what color candle to do inside the vase.

All of the flowers are silk flowers from Michael's. There is a mixture of fall leaves and dark poinsettias. All of the leaves and flowers are embellished with beautiful gold shimmer. It isn't tacky looking, but instead the shimmer completes the look.

What do y'all think? Do you have any other ideas to put the look over the top?!

Take care until next time,

Good for you! I love the colors (my bridesmaid's dress color is very similar to yours!)
we're DIYing centerpieces too. Mock-up pictures to come!
