Centerpiece idea - open for suggestions


Recommended Posts

Here's a pic of what my centerpieces will be looking like (so far). In case you can't tell from the pic, there are candles inside (just not lit). Keep in mind, I will be adding plenty more starfish and shells around the centerpiece. I was also planning on adding tea lights and more shells along the table runner (my tables will be long and not very wide, 4 tables total). The table linens that the hotel provides are white, so I thought a brown runner would give it a nice contrast and it's one of my wedding colors.

 

Any suggestions or comments? I was planning on adding a third vase, but I can't find these anymore! I'm also a little bummed that I didn't add my accent colors (mango and pink) to the centerpiece, but I couldn't really figure out how unless I added flowers. But, I wouldn't even know where to include them if I chose to buy flowers. I don't really want to spend much more on the centerpieces because they are not too much of a priority for me. But, I don't want them to look blah either, you know what I mean?!

 

 

By the way, for those who helped me find coral- I found some at JCPenny on clearance for $4.99 elefant.gif

 

Excuse the background, my kithen counter is the only place I could find space to set my stuff up:

How about placing everything on a round or square mirror on top of the table runner, and then adding some sand and small shells, etc dusted around.

 

It will a little "pop" and the candle flicker will show on the mirror.

 

Here's a pic of mine, to give a bit of an idea of what I mean about the small shells, etc sprinkled around...

Love your centerpiece!!! They are so pretty!

 

Since I'm having long, rectangular tables, I don't have enough space to add anything under (plus the bottom of the candleholders are pretty wide, so I would need big mirrors). That's the only reason I chose high candleholders. If I could find long mirrors, that may work. I have to look!

Well, they look great the way they are. Maybe just add the shells and baby starfish sprinkled around the coral and bigger shells. I think that just helps bring it all together. Different sizes and textures. And you already have that with the big candleholders and coral. They are going to be beautiful.

Thanks! I know how you feel! There are so many talented girls here with great ideas, it's hard to narrow down exactly what you want to do for your own wedding!
