So, Alli and I did a quick mock-up of our centerpieces this past weekend. Here's our inspiration:
Here are the branches before being painted. We just cut some off a fallen branch in my parents backyard...high class.
Here's what we came up with after spray painting the branches silver and sticking paper flowers on with glue dots:
A close up:
So I think we need wayyyy more flowers, and the flowers definitely need to be double sided. Also, a flower punch would really make this go faster instead of cutting out however many individual flowers.
Alli and I think that just this on a table is going to look really skimpy, so we're thinking about getting cheap paperbacks and covering them in red and aqua paper, and use them to add height to the table. We also want to look into clear glass votive holders to sprinkle about, and punch out extra flowers to sprinkle on the table. Ryan also suggested using white boxes to add height to teh tables, and he also found some very inexpensive manzanita branches on Ebay, so we might end up buying those.
So, what's your honest opinion? Does this look ridiculous or does it work? Any other ideas?
