McDaniel - KP Creations
With the high cost of weddings, we all appreciate tips on saving money.
Decorating your wedding can become very costly if you don't do your research
and centerpieces are often the most expensive thing next to flowers. They
get expensive because you often have to buy them for twenty or more tables.
Well here are some materials that will make beautiful centerpieces and
save you money.
Plastic Punch Bowls
These come in all different designs and some are even designed like crystal
punch bowls. I just bought a beautiful one from the local 99 cent store
with etched frosted flowers. You can decorate this so many ways. Place
it on the table with your favorite faux flowers or glue flowers all around
the edge and on the bottom and place it upside down on the table. You
can decorate it with doves, tulle, a mini bride and groom, etc. The possibilities
Paper Mache Boxes
These boxes come in all different shapes, from hearts, to mailboxes. Get
your favorite shape and use paint, flowers, tulle, etc to decorate it
the way you like. You can even cover the boxes with sand and paint them
to give them texture.
Clocks are fun because you can make up great poems about time and love
and place it on the table with the clock. Decorate these unfinished clocks
any way you like. Use a wood finish or paint and glue on tulle, flowers,
Clay Flower Pots
This is another great canvas for your centerpiece. The things you can
decorate these pots with are only limited by your imagination. Some ideas
include potpourri, little polaroids, string pearls, lace, etc.
You can find wood shapes to make anything you want. For example you can
have black table cloths with painted wooden stars taped to the table,
for a night among the stars. You could even use glow in the dark paint
for a romantic dance. Or you can make a large wooden flower from a large
wooden circle and teardrop wooden pieces and set it up in the center of
Pillar Candles, or any candles
Candles are very cheap. Decorate a pillar candle with rhinestones and
string pearls or your favorite lace and drape tulle around it on your
table and you have a wedding centerpiece. You can also take different
size votive holders and decorate them and place them on the table.
Florists Foam Forms
You can find them in many different shapes. Stick flowers in them or decorate
them any way you like. Stick them in the center of the table and you have
a nice understated centerpiece.
Good Luck and have fun planning your wedding!
