Ugly centerpiece trial *updated 10/29/08*

Recommended Posts

Sooo yeah- I did a trial CP and I hate it. It looks cheap and ugly and I'm going to think of a diff plan. Tue I have an apt with the florist so hopefully they can help spice it up. I wasn't going to do a lot of flowers in my CP, but now I think I need more flowers and SOMETHING else cuz this is gay.. Here are my ugly pictures. I hate how the floyalytes in center vase are a bright white and the candles are more of a natural light, which I like better. Oh well

I dont like the floral lights. Maybe not as many floral lights and you could just put crystals mixed in with the floral lights. I think a taller vase might work better. I really like the feathers though. Oh and my centerpieces are UGLY. I hate them. I'm not sure what i'm going to do.

How about painting the vase with a clear frosting type thing so that the lighting is more subdued.

 

also, how about something to bring together the vase and votives, like either a large plate of some sort, or even just a square of material (if you already have table runners or overlays, this would be like a smaller square of another color placed in the middle).

You should post yours and maybe some people will have some great suggestions on how to spice them up.

thx everyone!

 

Sunbride -I like the frosting idea, how do I do that? I guess a craft store would have something, like a spray?

 

Yari- yes they are tall, I should shorten it all, the stem of the flowers and the feathers. once i go to florists i will keep that in mind when looking how things look..

 

Danielle- i returned those stupid floyalytes! lol oh well

I think you should go up with the whole thing. Try a tower vase, something like this:

Could you try the floralytes in a different color, like purple? I like the idea of a runner to tie the two together or scatter some feathers or petals.

I love the frosting idea but you should def get a taller thinner vase. I LOVE the feathers and maybe add some branches instead of the single flower ok the below branches are ugly but you get the idea
