centerpiece vase sizes and napkin stuff and placecard stuff

Recommended Posts

I really like the vases, and the napkin idea is cute too. I am doing similar colors, chocolate and slate blue, and I was having a hard time finding ribbons and bows to match the centerpiece. What I finally did was use a clear vase and fill it with colored glass that comes in just about any shade of blue you can imagine, and we are putting a submersible light at the bottom so it kind of glows. I found the colored glass and the lights on ebay pretty cheap. Or you could always use colored water, just a thought.

I'm doing 3 vases in varying heights:12X5, 10X5, and 8X5. They'll have drowned orchids w/ a floating candle on top. And I plan to put 8 votives around that. I'm bringing the votives, and renting the vases from my WC.

Leia78 That makes sense - a friend of my mom just told me the centerpieces shouldn't be higher than 12 inches - so you are perfect. If I weren't getting the turquoise vases, I might have tried to drown the antorcha instead - such a cool look! I am leaning twds three 8x2 vases with 2 stems of antorchas each, with little voltive candles scattered around the vases. The WC said I'd only have about 14 inches of space on the the table for the centerpiece area.

I love the vases! It's exactly what I've been looking for! Do you know who Flores Julieta is getting them from? My resort is taking care of my flowers, but I want to find vases just like those ones - the color is perfect!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
