I am back bride-blogging with a vengeance now that I’ve got some of the rest of my life in line. Hope you’re ready!
Here’s what we’ve got going on so far when it comes to the centerpieces: tealights, lanterns, and chargers. We’re going with a candle theme as opposed to flowers because a) it seems more in line with the season, b) it’s way less expensive, and c) more in line with our tastes.
Without further ado, some pictures!
$4.99? No. $1? Yes. Aren’t the leaves perfect? They’re just autumn-y enough without being in your face.
Here are the lanterns and chargers we’ve found. The lanterns will wind up being another color because, even though the one in the picture is just what we were looking for, we could only find 4 in that color at the store we were in. So we’ve got to find a spray paint color that’s similar to the one you see here, then paint them all so they match. The chargers make a nice base for it all, don’t you think?
The best part of it all, aside of how gorgeous it’ll all look together (of course), is that we got it all at the Christmas Tree Shop. If you’re on the East Coast, get yourself to one STAT. Our grand total for the centerpieces thus far is a whopping $5.50 per table. We’ll get the candles from the party site, so that’s not a concern. Elegance and coming in well under budget WIN.
They’ll be arranged in a way that makes the best use of the materials, and we might add another touch to fill in some of the space. Can’t show you the finished product until we get to the wedding day!
