The Family Jewels

Forgive my post title. I couldn't help it. :)

I'm sure many of you have seen the beautiful centerpieces with jewels that seem to be dripping off them.

These are pretty similar to what we plan to do with our centerpieces (I love those hydrangeas!)

Mom saw some of the dripping jewels and had a thought. My grandma always decorated her Christmas trees with jewels! We all began searching through our Christmas stuff, and we found these!

We have enough to include about five on each centerpiece! I love the extra bling they add, and I also love using something my grandma loved and collected. (My grandma has Alzheimer's and won't be able to make it to the wedding - I love being able to include her in this way!) Aren't they pretty?

Are you adding any personal touches to your wedding decor?


  1. The jewels will be so pretty! I cannot wait to see pictures of your centerpieces with those jewels! It will definitely not only add an extra 'wow' factor but it will also be something personal for you. Every time you see your centerpieces it will make you think of your grandma! I love your idea!
