But we're not so sure about the hanging candles. My sister brought a vase she had in her house, bought some orchids (which were not expensive at all by the way) and we bought some curly willow. Oh, and I almost forgot the best part. We needed some greenery, so as we leave Pier1 with the curly willow, my sister starts grabbing branches off a bush out in front of the store. Hilarious. But this is what we came up with on a very first attempt:
Okay, so the vase needs to be taller, and perhaps the flowers a bit fuller, but I think we did pretty well for our first try! We are thinking about adding some hypericum berries, but I'm not sure how much more color we will need than that because of the decorations already in the room. We are also now playing with the idea of using three different centerpieces throughout the room, so stay tuned for more trial runs!
Are you making your own centerpieces? Where did you go for inspiration?
