Post your centerpieces here

Recommended Posts

Ladies,

 

Thank you for all of this inspiration.  Many of you are SO creative.  I especially LOVE the wine bottles with the postcards.  My fiance and I have been living in South Korea for the past 2 years and have done LOTS of traveling, so I may try and re-create this idea.  Hope you don't mind :)

 

*Futuremrstgun - The scrabble pieces on the table is such a unique idea.  Your tablescape looks great!

 

Happy planning everyone.

Have any of you ladies had any luck finding tall plastic vases?If so, where? I'm hoping to find some decent ones to bring with me! I just don't know if I want to risk glass.

Agreed! I'd like to do plastic too. There might be a comment earlier on in this thread about someone traveling with plastic vases. It sounds vaguely familiar...

Hi Mich, 

Can you please post a picture of your homesense plastic vase find?  I was just there today and didn't see anything but I never even thought to look there! Also what section did you get them in?

I am assuming you are talking about the water beads (good for real flowers too!!!) You can find them on ebay, amazon and a google search of "water beads" will give you a TON of results.  I believe many florists and even michaels sells it now too but they charge an arm and a leg, ebay you can get them for about $1 a package and that makes quite a lot!!!!  Great for travelling as the package weighs next to nothing!!!

ladies....

 

i just got some quotes from Tai Flora in Jamaica for centerpieces, and I anticipated about 75 dollars (as the top end) and am I ever wrong! They started at 79 and up (US dollars plus tax) Can I ask what others are paying for their centerpieces ? I just don't want to haul a bunch of stuff down there (ie floating candles or something) if i have 8 tables ($80 per table x 8 = 640 for a 3 hour reception?)  I'm torn....seems like a lot of money to me.

Hi Tori!

 

I don't have the plastic vases at my house, they are at my bridemaids house, cause she's the artistic one and is in charge of doing the centerpieces! I got them maybe 3 weeks ago the vases, they have a stem, bigger at the botton, smaller in the middle and then a bit larger at the lip.... I went to HomeSense in the brossard area, have no idea if all of them have the same items! Only bought 2 !! Yes i'm crazy .... I really regret it ... because I'm sure to need more! Will go look tomorrow if they still have some more , they were with the summer dishes and Bbq stuff...

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
