I've still got to make a few more of these, but I wanted a simple and light centerpiece to take to Mexico. I'm just going to set up 4 along our table, along with some white damask candles I bought. These were quite light, and not a dense glass so I'm not to worried about transporting them. Probably just stuff them with clothes, wrap 'em in a towel, and put them in a carry-on for FI so bring (since I gotta lug around a beast of a dress!).

 

Our table linens and chair bows are plum, so I attached a ribbon to the top of the vase to tie it into the theme. Green is the accent colour.

 

I know these centerpieces are popular with BDW brides.

 

Cost breakdown:

Vase - $4

Ribbon - $.25

2 Orchid/vase - $1.50

Floating candle - $.33

 

TOTAL = $6.08 per centerpiece.

Yes I did. I hate how expensive fake flowers are! I checked at other craft stores and dollar stores but they looked SO cheap and SO fake. Yuck.

They were $5.99 for a stem with 7 blooms, so it's not too bad depending how many flowers you need. Coupons are always a bonus too cheesy.gif

Great job! I'm going to do this for either the wedding or shower, not sure which.

I totally agree about the silk flowers! That's why I think I'm going to just use real orchids, especially if it's for the shower since transporting them won't be an issue!
