Limes & peacock feathers centrepiece

Recommended Posts

I wasn't planning on having centrepieces at all, but now only 2 weeks away, I feel like I need something!?!

 

My colours are blues/greens, so I came up with the idea of using limes and peacock feathers together.

 

I did a mock up today and this is how it turned out. I am honestly not really sure what I think of it! I mean, it's pretty plain....was definitely easy. I feel like the limes could be placed a little better.

 

If I decide to go with this, I may have the florist do it...if they will. I suppose I could always change the peacock feathers to flowers too.

 

Anyway, just thought I'd share with you.

Wow Ange, I think it's really unique! I was thinking maybe less limes and floating candles but I don't want the peacock feathers to catch fire, haha :)

 

I'm gonna think and see if can come up with any other options.

I agree. I love the peacock feathers but maybe with lime green or white stones/marbles and floating candles would look awesome.

Maybe if you had half cut limes sitting on the bottom of the vase, then floating candles and the feathers. I think the limes could be used as a minimal accent that there should be space between them and the feather.

It is a really great idea!

I like it but I think whole limes may look better. And if you want something extra you can put a few votives around the bottom. I think that would really pull it together. Great concept though.

I think if you took a ribbon and tied it around the top it might bring it together more. Kinda like this, but a ribbon more suitable to your theme: Click the image to open in full size.

 

This placement of the ribbon is more what I was thinking:

Or what if you were to take a centerpiece like the one below and place the peacock feathers inside- flat against the glass so it peaks around the whole limes.

I'm probably not explaining it well...but I see it in my head!

Thanks for the ideas, ladies! I am going to have to work on some of them and see if I can pull something together........or maybe just hand it off to someone else!
