Stunning Centerpieces

Today I want to show you some easy and inexpensive ideas for stunning centerpieces!

Check out these paper roses, made from book pages (or use sheet music instead!) I personally cringe at the notion of tearing pages out of books, but those that are already damaged are fair game. Check thrift stores and garage sales. You could even put a request out on freecycle.

If you have a favorite love story or poem, consider photocopying it on vintage-look paper for your petals.

Get the bridesmaids to come over and have an assembling party :)

Maybe add these sweet-and-simple roses for a pop of color:

Looking for real plant-life? This tutorial shows you how to drill holes in bricks, but I would think you can skip that headache and just buy red masonry brick. Add some succulents and votives for an earthy focal point.

Or hit the thrift stores for their seemingly endless supply of milk glass and plant your succulents in those! I think these would be darling with a burlap table runner.

For cut flowers, Martha shares her tips on floral arrangements. This bowl centerpiece is genious. The hunt is on for interesting, eye-catching ceramics, pottery, and glassware to match your style and wedding theme!

Here's a colorful idea using mason jars (or any vase) and citrus slices.

I absolutely love this fire-and-ice effect. Find gel beads in just about any color here.

I hope you have a blast creating your tablescapes!
