25 Sep Wedding Centerpiece #2
Hey party people!
It’s wedding week here at Parties for Pennies! My sister, Meg is getting married in April!
This is me & the bride to be. She is going to be such a gorgeous bride. That is definitely not the question. The issue at hand are the wedding centerpieces. Meg asked me to come up with a few options for her. Every day this week, I’m posting a different centerpiece. I’d love your input. Let me know which one you like the best & you think Meg should choose.

The first centerpiece had more of an elegant modern feel to it. This centerpiece definitely has the rustic & feminine feel. The crate was an unfinished CD box that I stained a dark walnut. The purple hydrangeas aren’t real. But hydrangeas are a little ornery as far as when they’re in season & the care it takes to keep them looking good.
BTW…I don’t think I mentioned this before…I’m not a flower arranger. I’ve never taken any classes & youtube videos don’t count. ;p Please forgive me if I go against any cardinal flower arranging rule this week. And feel free to correct me. ;p
I think I have most everything checked off on this one: burlap, lace, rustic, purple…but not a lot of green. How about adding these?
Do you think the limes are the finishing touches? Definitely adds a splash of green. A couple other things to add to this centerpiece would be – two candlesticks with taper candles on either side of the crate…or I could put the taper candles in the limes. That would add some height. I could also do one candle in the middle of the crate. Lots of options to think about.
Here’s how the $$$ breaks down:
Still under the $40-$221 average price per wedding centerpiece. What do you think? Any additions you’d make to this centerpiece? There’s still 3 more to go. I’ll post #3 tomorrow!
