Non Glass Centerpiece??? Any Ideas?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone actually tried the limes cut in the vase at a wedding we did a trial at home and it took so many to do just one vase and they didn't keep for very long. Just wanted to see if anyone was happy with it and how they worked out

Nope I haven't, sorry. But sounds pretty!

 

I bought plastic frames from Michaels. I also bought those white pails (think favor pails) for my votives and blinged them out. Will also have some shells scattered on the tables. I didn't want anything breakable.

YES! Because thats what I am looking for!  This is a couple ideas I had:

 

Centrepieces - I actually think I will do something with metal buckets because they travel well.  These are my current ideas:

So I would do the first picture, but fill it with water and floating candles (maybe put some sparkles in the water), and around the bottom do greenery with some tropical flowers in our colours.  I can probably get a metal stand to put inside the bucket of water with our table numbers on it.  I may paint it with white metallic and put a coloured ribbon around it.
 
And with a pail - it can be as rustic as you want it to be, or as elegant.  You can take off the handle and paint it. You can leave it as is!
 
That, OR try something like this:

And I would probably bring my own candles and do something like this (and add maybe a monogram sticker or a thin ribbon on it:

Driftwood would travel well but is a bit heavy.

I found white metal lanterns on clearance at Target. We are using those with a wooden letter and small vases of flowers. Cheaper than a large flower centerpiece! I was able to fit all 5 lanterns in one suitcase along with a lot of other stuff! We are only having 29 people though.

I found plastic frames at michaels for table numbers. I'm also using small white pails (favor pails) as votive holders. I added some bling. Sprinkling shells on the table and using my BM bouquets as the flowers. Hoping they will supply the vases as they are purchased flowers. If not, oh well. I'm not packing anymore!!! I will find a cup ha

was thinking of just getting dollar store battery operated candles and creating a "votive" out of vellum so they can be covered, b/c they are ugly otherwise! lol and perhaps having handmade paper flowers scattered over the tables. 

I would have different height candles/votive to create a more dynamic feel to the table. 

 

In my opinion it's all about lighting...helps create that magical ambiance.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
