Charisse’s nuptials are still more than a year away, but I’m really getting excited! My other daughter Samara (the baker) and I will be giving her a shower. The bride-to-be wants a shabby chic/vineyard theme and of course my wheels are turning.
We’ve already started the hunt for wine crates and I’ve been pinning tons of pictures. I put together this simple floral box to see how it would work as a centerpiece. You know that throwing away a box is almost impossible for me so I didn’t have to look far to find one.
I tucked in the flaps and secured them with hot glue. After that it was a matter of covering the box with burlap. What I had on hand was already in strips so that made the process quicker and easier. I also covered the glued down flaps with burlap also.
After that I applied ribbon around the middle of the box and embellished the front with some pearl jewels I found in the clearance section at Joann’s a while back. Once the box was ready I filled it with blossoms and used it as a centerpiece on my Mother’s Day table.
By not securing the flowers inside, changing them will be easy peasy. A white lace tablecloth was the foundation. The stack was very simple. Dark pink charger, white and pink dinnerware that has a damask-esque pattern, plus faux Mother of Pearl flatware. I chose a pink napkin and don’t ask me why I folded it that way and added the clothespin, but it’s there.
The cut class of the smaller tumbler reminds me of lace and is another great thrift find along with the other glasses.
To add to the centerpiece I used the flowers from my Sweetheart Table. This time I added tufts of hot pink tulle to the base and tucked them inside a white vine votive holder. The gold mercury glass bottles and votive holders begged me to be added. Who am I to say no when they’re so cute. Naturally the tapers wanted in on the act also.
I have a year to get ready and tons of ideas. Stay tuned!!
These are the linky parties I participate in. Drop by and show them a little love!
