Great EASY Flower Centerpiece

Recommended Posts

I'm staying at the Hyatt in Boston .. and a bunch of the ladies at this wine convention have been oohing and aahing over these cool decorations in the banquet hall area bathrooms.

 

I've taken a picture on my cell phone so will try to upload. If I can find this type of flower ... I'm SSOO going to do this.

 

It's a big Gerber Daisy, silk, with a long stem that kind of coils around. Then, there are tall, wide round plastic vases with rocks in the bottom. the vase is filled up with water and the flower(s) are placed in them, totally submerged. It looks like the flower is growing up from the rocks, underwater.

 

Don't know if that's a good description for your minds eye ... but hopefully I can get a pic from my cell phone to here...

 

I've just never seen silk flowers with long coiled stems like that. Guess it's another thing to search for at Michaels and Garden Ridge!!

 

It looks very classy and expensive ... but is obviously easy and inexpensive for us DIY'ers.

Okay, this is a blurry pic (and small...) b/c I took it on my cell phone as a video (too much wine) instead of as a picture ... but hopefully you get the idea. They were beautiful!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
