The trend these days in the party planning industry is all about creative ways to create the WOW effect without the ouch to your budget. I have some ideas that I would like to share when it come to centerpieces for the tables.
The hard fast rule over large expensive floral arrangements, has taken a bit of a shift. Many brides are agreeing to simple yet elegant natural designs that incorporate a thyme. I recently had a bride that liked the look of bird nests. She and her groom had already started their family, so it wasn't just the two of them, it was three. I was able to locate twig-like bird nests in a local craft store, and filled each nest with three powder blue eggs. The nests were laid on a bed of ferns and surrounded with small white votive candles. Their colors were powder blue, brown and white. Using some wide satin ribbons and sheer long curtains, the arbor was transformed in no time. The colors were infused throughout the gardens. Tall vases were filled with blue food coloring and a floating candle. They lined the isle with the perfect illumination needed for a wedding at dusk. The vintage birdbath added to the thyme.
