Wedding Centerpiece #1

Hey there party people! Who loves weddings?? Planning a wedding can be one of the most fun & stressful things in the whole world. But you know what the best kind of wedding planning is?? Your sisters! You don’t have to have the stress but you get all the fun!

That’s what’s going down April of 2013. My sister, my best friend & keeper of all my secrets (;p) is getting hitched to a guy that is perfect for her. Seriously, I am so thankful for David (fiance) in her life. He adores her & I couldn’t ask for a better man to marry my sister.

I am so freakin excited for their wedding, for the bridal shower, for the…well…everything. One of the things Meg asked me to do was come up with some ideas for the centerpieces. So, I decided to get YOU involved. I came up with 5 different variations of centerpieces. I’m going to post a different one each day & I want to know what YOU think! Let me know which is your favorite or maybe something you’d change. I know Meg would love any feedback you have.

This was my mission regarding the centerpieces:

I also needed to make sure it’s as budget friendly as possible.

The place Meg’s getting married is called Oakhurst & her reception will be in the Hall. If you want to check it out so you have an idea of what the centerpieces may look like in the room, click here.

The first centerpiece I did was a tad more modern looking. Meg “pinned” several centerpieces with the limes so I added those to a vase & used curly branches & gladiolus to add height. Since the reception space has a really tall ceiling, I thought it’d be nice to have at least one really tall centerpiece.


Purple & Green? Check. Burlap & Lace? Partially check. Rustic Elegant? hmm…probably more on the end of elegant. How did I do price-wise? Here’s the breakdown:

(Oops…the “lace” is supposed to be the purple material)

That may seem like a lot but most wedding centerpieces range from $40-$221.

I decided to try & add another pop to this centerpiece with faux purple hydrangeas.

What do you think? The only problem with this is that it adds $14 to the centerpiece budget. 🙁 Maybe I could find a way to get them cheaper?

Okay so here’s centerpiece #1. What do you think?

Stop by tomorrow for a completely different centerpiece idea.

    I like them better with the hydrangeas.

    You are so talented Heidi! Both are beautiful. But, I like the simple elegance without the hydrangeas.

    As much as I absolutely love hydrangeas, I think I like the piece without them. It’s both simple and elegant. Love the idea of the limes, too! Did Meg say she wants the centerpieces to contain purple in the actual floral arrangement or just a part of the whole table set-up? I’ll just have to wait to form a complete opinion once I’ve seen the rest. Looking great so far, though! 🙂

      Thanks Becky!! Meg didn’t specify how the purple should be incorporated…those are just her wedding colors so she wanted them to go along with the overall theme. Thanks so much for chiming in. I look forward to hearing what you think about the rest of them. <3 Heidi Rew

    I love all the centerpieces. You are so very talented and your sister is blessed to have you helping her out. Flowers are just ridiculously priced these days and what you have done so far is very beautiful and professional. I’m going to wait until all have been showcased and then let you know, but I do love the limes. Great way to incorporate the green color without so much “green stuff” just placed because.

    Gotta find out when you are going to be at Kia, though my hubby just bought a new car from Milton Martin Honda, I really want to meet you and Mike as well, cause he is a Gator and I love my Gators.

    Hugs and great work!

      Thanks Jackie! I can’t wait to hear your final assessment! :p Congrats on the new car. I’ll be at Carriage this Saturday & Mike will be at Carriage Nissan next month. Thanks so much for your input. You’re a great party planner so I value your opinion! <3 Heidi Rew

    I like the one with hydrangeas and lime. I never do anything with a fresh fruits inside the vase..but i will do on my next project.. since the theme is rustic, maybe you can add small grey/brown river stone..i like to add that in my vase..

      That’s a great idea! Riverstone would be really cool. I’ll pass that on to Meg & see what she thinks! Great idea. I really appreciate it. <3 Heidi Rew
