hi friends! I'm looking for some feedback / ideas on our centerpiece mock-ups....

 

A few ideas/comments:

  • I'm planning to frost the bottles, so it's a little softer 
  • we have 8 tables and my initial thought is to do a different flower arrangement for each table
  • Plan to use the silk flowers to help keep costs down
  • yes, the vase is a small patron/tequila bottle
  • do the flowers/vase add to the centerpiece or do they distract? Are the flowers needed or does the bottle on it's own look ok?
  • FI likes the first and last photo the best... 

 

Thoughts? feedback? love em? hate em?

I like your concept, I think the tequila bottles are cute.  The first one looks best since it has some contrast and a couple of colors to add interest.  However, I would splurge a little and get real flowers.  For 8 tables you only need 2 dozen flowers.  (3 each vase) Always use odd numbers in design...3 or 5..... you could easily get gerber daisys or roses and shouldn't be too much money for 2 dozen? I would use real rose petals too...again not that much money for 8 tables and will add a lot to your d├ęcor.  Good luck!

Thanks! I changed it up a bit... removed the petals - it suddenly hit me that the petals look weird because they couldn't have 'fallen' off any of the flowers... 

 

also - we are not doing real flowers because the resort charges way more than you'd think, even for just 2 dozen flowers - I think the last quote I got was $100 for 2 dozen... outrageous! we can't bring in our own real flowers, not without paying the outside vendor fee. so, enter fake flowers. No one remembers centerpieces anyway, but we still wanted them to look nice :). at the end of the day, this setup is $21 per table vs. the $90/each centerpieces from Lomas. 

 

here's the updated design... (the bottle will be frosted and the word will be painted gold)

 

3 blue flowers with love sign
3 flowers with love sign 3

@DnD hi! I actually got them from a few different sources because I was struggling to find nice looking ones. 

 

My favorite ones are from Amazon

some are from Ikea

the small sights are from Michaels and Hobby Lobby.
