I made my centerpiece “mock up” and as far as pricing goes it was pretty decent. I got the flowers from Afloral.com in bulk for the whole wedding so it wasnt bad…I bought 36 vases from the dollartree.com and they shipped them to the store and I picked them up so I got 36 vases for about $40.
I am still planning to get something to go into the bottom of the vases to cover the “stem” part and do a little better arranging…I also added a pic of the voltive candles that’ll be on the tables…there will be 8-10 voltives on each table. I am hoping that our guests can take these as “favors” because I have no clue what I’d do with 200 voltive candles..but..I still feel like it is lacking something. Some ideas would be nice 🙂
Our tables are going to have Ivory table cloths with Lime Green table Runners with the centerpieces and voltives….

I think it will look pretty. I think that when you do a mock up of your whole centerpiece and it comes together you might not feel like you are missing anything. Your arrangement is really pretty. Maybe add a mirror?

since you’re already planning to cover the stems, maybe you could insert some floral foam or stones or something to help vary the height of the arrangement? maybe make it more “dome shaped” if that makes any sense?
either way i think it will be beautiful. i love your colors!

I hid my stems by lining the interior of the vases with Ti leaves, but any leaf will work just fine tho.

Thanks Guys…I really appreciate the input and will keep it in mind! 🙂
@Minaia; I have TONS of leaves that I took off of the bottoms of the stems..I was wondering what I was going to do with all of them…Maybe I’ll try it out and see how it looks.

These look great! I love your colors. What kind of flowers are the dark purple ones?

If the leaf won’t “roll” inside the vase, you can also position several leaves “standing up”, I hope that made sense?, lol. Yea, for some reason I don’t like to show the stems either, I got a lot of compliments on how creative my vases looked 😉
@ paulson76: The dark purple ones are bulk “florigene” MOONVISTA carnations from Sam’s club online. Got 140 stems for $87, if I remember correctly?

I like your colors. If you are a diy consider using floral foam (it helped me a lot). You must also have in mind the size of your centerpiece and the size of the table where it will be placed.
