I bought some cheap vases and margarita pitchers at an awesome glass store in Playa Del Carmen, then picked up limes at a local farmers market.

here's our table settings. We went simple with the centerpieces - glass vase (rented from the resort), and I brought the rest: votive, sand, shells, starfish, and the glitter wooden shells for a touch of bling.

Good question. I looked at a couple video tutorials online. Just Google Mexican Tissue Paper Flowers and there are lots of instructions. Making the flowers was actually pretty easy, if a bit time consuming. Figuring out how to get them to Mexico was a bit trickier. 

 

Basically, there are two steps to making the flowers: Cutting them out and assembling them, and fluffing them out. I did the cutting and assembling at home, and was able to carefully pack them up in bundles when they were still flat so the traveled in my luggage. I puffed the flowers up once we were in Mexico. This worked well because we were in Mexico for a week before the wedding and enlisted some friends to help in the fluffing, which took awhile. I'm not sure I'd go the paper flower route if I only had a few days before the wedding, since it takes some time to do a large quantity.I'd rather be hanging by the pool. 

 

I also brought some floral foam from home to help with arranging the flowers in the vases. They have wire stems, so arranging them was pretty easy. 

 

One benefit to the paper flowers is that we were able to making matching poof decorations (I don't know what they are really called) with our extra tissue. You can see them hanging here:

I've been playing around a bit with the table decor..  We are set on the centerpieces (first picture), and runners, but I'm not sure if I like the Pink napkin in the glass with a white menu card, or vice versa... what are your thoughts ladies?? (and thats obviously NOT our centerpiece in the last 2 pictures, just some vase I had laying around)

Hello, TropicalBride10,

Lots of beautiful wedding and centerpeice ideas here!  You are very creative.  I am getting married in May 2013 at OCT in Puerto Morelos, Mexico.  I love, love, love the metal scrollwork candle lanterns in the last photo, and want to work lanterns like that into my wedding centerpieces.  Where did you find these lovely treasures?  I have been combing the Internet without much luck.  I like the first photo with the shiny silver lanterns, too -- wouldn't mind using them, either.  Like you, I am simply obsessed with lanterns in my centerpieces.  Any info you may be able to provide is helful and would be appreciated.  My email is acd8809@yahool.com.

Dear Tropical Bride10,

 

Lots of lovely centerpiece ideas here -- you are very creative!   I am also obsessed with using lanterns in my centerpieces at OCT in May 2013.  love, love, love lanterns and have been combing the Internet for the metal scrollwork lanterns in your last photo with limited success.  Where did you find these lovely treasures?  The shiny silver lanterns in the first photo would work, too.  My email is acd8809@yahoo.com.  Any info you may be able to provide is much appreciated!  Thanks!
