DIY flowers Part Deux

Yesterday I shared our DIY bridesmaid bouquet experience with you.

The fun did not stop there!

Ever wonder what the heck the bridesmaids should do with their bouquets after the ceremony is over?! Well, I have your solution here!

I had purchased vases for the bridesmaids to place their bouquets in at Michael's for about $1.50. They are so simple yet elegant and I LOVE them!

Once again, the fun did not stop there...

I was not satisfied with the bouquet just chillin in an empty vase like that... so, I conveniently had purchased some pearl beads (from none other than Michael's) and places some pearls in the vase.

I felt like it was such a simple touch that really added a lot.

Doesn't the bouquet look like fireworks?!

These can either become your centerpieces, or they can be scattered around your reception site, or they can line your head table.

What do you think!?

How are you going to use the bouquets after the ceremony?

Take care until next time,

Super Cute. I never thought about using them as part of the decor but i'm thinking that i'll probably use mine on the head table. There are so many different ways of displaying them.

i just blogged about this same thing today too! my finace's last name is "stone" so we're filling all our vases with little river rocks like your pearls - cheesy but cute :)

oh i'm so glad you tried the DIY and it worked for you! isn't it crazy that you will be able to make almost all of the bouquets for the price of ONE from the florist! woooohoooo!

i am using my bouquet on the cake table. then the girls' bouquets will be lined on the headtable along with various heights of candles.
