*CENTERPIECE IDEAS FOR SMALL BUDGET*

OK so I just wanted to post this idea for this group (on the main boards as well) If you go to dollar tree you can get balloon boquets, (ballon wieght and however many ballons you want) The best part is you can spend basically as much as you are comfterable with. Like if you just want like 3 balloons, you will only spend 4 dollars per centerpiece. (including the balloon weight)  Usually 3 or 4 balloons look nice, if you overdo it like 10 per weight, it can look a little cramped. Just food for thought. :) HTH


(FYI they have wedding balloons)

 I picked pinecones off the ground on the street that I live on. I am piling them in small baskets with green apples and scattering white pillar candles down the length of each table. I am also having cider and cinnamon donuts along with the wedding cake to keep along the fall theme.  I am going to tie plaid or floral fabric around wine bottles with raffia or twine at the top to serve as water pitchers at the tables. I have been saving wine bottles for a couple months.  Anyone have an idea for a simple archway for the ceremony?

I just had this idea that might work out. Gather up some used food cans, empty them out and file down the edges if you have to. From their take a nail and hammer and put holes in the can (either randomly or in some sort of pattern). Take either a tea candle, fake tea candle, or even LED lights, set it at the bottom of the can. Now take some lace or even tissue paper, put it over the opening of the can, and secure with either ribbon or elastic.


It shouldn't run you hardly anything, as you can just save the cans you use for making food (it'd be cool to have a variety of sizes), more likely than not you have (or have access to) nails and a hammer, you can purchase tea lights from almost anywhere for fairly cheap (I have packs of them at my dollar store), and lace you can purchase rather inexpensively from fabric stores, and tissue paper you can get next to nothing.


If you want to make it work for your own color theme, you can spraypaint the cans to make the color and also the tissue paper/lace.


I'm definitely doing this for my own!
