Something Blue

One of my childhood friends got married last month and I had the pleasure of decorating his wedding. I've never done centerpieces for a wedding before so naturally I was little unsure if I could even pull it off ... But overall I think they turned out pretty good & I can't wait for my next project {which is actually coming up in a couple of weeks so stay tuned}

Their wedding colors were blue and ivory so I decided to go with all creams and whites for the flowers.

I used long-stemmed glass candle holders and filled them with water {I added light blue food coloring to try to incorporate both of the wedding colors} I used simple floating candles in a couple of the glasses and filled the rest with various flowers and greenery.

For this glass I only used Lillies and hanging green Amaranthus. I stringed diamonds amongst the greenery to reflect off the LED lights insides of the glasses.

For the tallest glasses I used white roses, white Albatross Mums, white double stocks, & the hanging green Amaranthus.

I also incorporated gold spray-painted limes to build a pyramid-shaped centerpiece with flowers!

The blue origami flower napkins were somewhat of a last minute idea. The napkins that the bride ordered ended up being the wrong shade of blue so we had to get creative with paper napkins. I found a DIY on youtube for folding napkins and the rest was history. The bright blue definitely gave the table settings an extra pop of color.

When all was said and done, I finally had some time to relax and have a lil fun! The wedding went great ... really entertaining & definitely lots of great memories!
