Make your Centerpieces...Masterpieces

Hello readers. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with friends, family...and lots of food! While I was sitting at Thanksgiving dinner, staring at my mom's vase filled with beautiful fall leaves from the yard, I began to think about alternative centerpiece ideas. As you probably know, one of the most expensive decor elements of any wedding or party is the centerpieces. In today's economy, we need to come up with creative ways to not only save money, but still have unique and dramatic decor! There are hundreds of ideas out there for alternative centerpiece ideas...and here are a few of my favorites-


Tin cans! all have them but I bet you never thought to put flowers in them? Well, check out these colorful cans used for a Mexican inspired Rehearsal dinner (source).

And for all those tea your tins to create a gorgeous display of flowers like this one from Martha Stewart.

And I absolutely LOVE this sweet and simple centerpiece that requires almost NO EFFORT! Simple peel the labels off, tie some ribbon or string around them, and they're ready for flowers!

I'm not sure what you call this...Moss Garden Butterfly centerpiece? But I love it!!!! This is such a unique idea, and will give your guests a great conversation piece. Learn how to make your own here.

Here is another trend that I am pleasantly surprised to find a lot of...Wheat! You can simply tie a bunch of wheat stalks together with a nice ribbon, and viola...instant centerpiece.

So next time your throwing a party...think outside the vase. There are so many Do-it-Yourself projects that are easy, fun, affordable and to quote the Guinness commercial - BRILLIANT!!!!!
Till next time...
