My daughter is having a very simple, very limited budget “picnic table” style wedding reception. Her colors are watermelon pink and plum/purple… We are going for a homemade/rustic country feel and are thinking that we will alternate the colors on different tables. These are a couple of the “mock” centerpieces that I made… Comments are appreciated. This is not going to be the exact layout of the tables….We will likely use “Kraft paper for tablecloths and then the oyster burlap runners… I am not sure about them because I don’t want it to look “cheap” per se, but a lot of real flowers (or even fake flowers) are not really in the budget and she needs at least 15 tables …. We do have real ivory plates, mason jar drink glasses, and pink and purple gingham homemade napkins with real silverware…
I think the winebottles look great. just a suggestion..i am using wine bottles as well hopefully, but they have the smaller bottles that you could use as candle holders as well..
I love this! Do you know the process for painting the bottles? We are planning on a similar set up. I was curious if you primed the bottles first. Thanks!
Thank you! It took forever to get the labels off and I found the easiest way to accomplish it was to use vegetable oil and one of the wire dish scrubbers. Them I washed them in hot soapy water to get all the oil off and let them dry. I did not use primer. I just spray painted and some of them did streak. The secret is to do light coats and let dry in between. However, I got impatient. The burlap and tulle hid most of the blemishes though. I will say I am NOT an expert and you may be able to find better instructions on Pinterest or other sites…
how did you get the pomanders to stick to the bottles? i want to do something similiar, but i dont want them to fall off.
