When I first started thinking about centerpieces, the first thought that popped into mind was "crystal tree". I saw them at all the Bridal Expos and all over magazines. So, I started collecting vases from various co-workers (yay for free glass vases!). My dad also just trimmer his tall bushes, so there were plenty of branches for me to use. I filled a sample vase with sand from the beach, and stated creating my crystal tree using beads from Walmart and Martha Stewart pom poms made out of pink vinyl table cloth.
This is what it looked like.
Things were going great... and then I realized... the vases were too short. If I used these, my guests would have this vase directly eye-level to them and will not be able to see across the table! AAAAARRRRGGGGGHHHH!! And to make matters worse, my parents left the trimmed branches unprotected in the backyard. Yes, bugs and MOLD started to invade the pile. We had to scrap all of it. *cry*
Now this is my new inspiration! The centerpieces, not the table :) Going to use some of my stars on the strands since I have a "star" theme.
After seeing these on joandcompany's bio, I'm thinking of maybe making one huge flower to top my centerpieces. Haha, here's me playing with Photoshop.
