Felt Flowers Centerpieces and Heart Decor???

I am thinking of ways to incorporate the hearts into my wedding, and I know I am going to do felt hearts for the groomsmen and the groom...and possibly a bouquet of felt hearts and roses for the bridesmaids. What do you all think I can do for the centerpieces. I'd like the tables to be more whimsical and fun rather than so serious and I was thinking of doing red felt flowers in tall vases filled with white filler pebbles or candies (whichever is cheapest) and my tablecloths will be navy blue. Help me family :)

I will try to find pictures. but you know after the christmas stuff goes away they start putting out valentines day stuff. but in the mean time let me see what I can find.

heart wedding centerpiecehttp://www.wedding-flowers-guide.com/heart-wedding-centerpiece.html

The first idea makes use of heart shaped floristry foam. It used to be the case that floristry foam came just in dark green and florists were always taught to cover up the foam using flowers or foliage.

Now foams are available in a wide range of colours and shapes such as the 'Rainbow' range from Oasis. With their bright colors these modern foams can now become part of the design rather than being hidden away.

heres a few more ideas you can adapt

 

Photo Hearts Centerpiece

  • Make copies of favorite photos and frame them with heart shapes. For a child's birthday party, copy a photo from each year of his life up to the present. Cut simple frames from foam sheets or cardboard and decorate them using paints, markers, buttons, scrapbook ornaments, glitter, ribbon and glue. Paint chopsticks or thin dowel rods to match the frames and glue the framed photos to them. Insert the chopsticks or dowel rods into floral foam along with white daisies and greenery.

    For an elegant centerpiece, use silver heart-shaped frames and photos appropriate to the occasion. For example, if you're making the centerpiece for a birthday party, copy photos of the guest of honor. For an anniversary, copy wedding photos and current photos of the couple. Use frames of varying sizes to add interest to the arrangement. Place the frames on a silver tray and twine a silk flower garland among them, or place cut flowers in a low silver bowl and surround it with the silver heart-shaped frames.

Wooden Hearts Centerpiece

  • Buy unpainted wooden hearts of varying sizes, or cut them from 1/8-inch plywood. Spray paint the hearts pink, red and white. Stencil messages onto three or four of them, such as "Happy Birthday," "Happy Valentine's Day" or "Happy Anniversary." Glue fabric trims, pretty buttons, beads, charms, ribbon and lace to the rest of the painted hearts. Cut chopsticks or thin dowel rods to varying lengths, paint them leaf green and glue one heart to each of them. Paint a terra cotta pot red and cut a piece of floral foam to fit inside it. Insert the chopsticks or dowel rods into the foam. Trim the stems of silk flower clusters to a length that will place them just above the rim of the pot, and insert them into the floral foam, covering it completely.

from martha stewart weddings

a100879_fal04_heartcenterpiece   Give petite flowers a larger presence by arranging them in the form of a heart. With this centerpiece there are enough blooms for every guest to take a cluster or two home. To ensure that the design stands out, use short, small vessels, such as eggcups. We combined a vibrant collection of ranunculuses with all-white details. Candles placed inside the heart will showcase the flowers into the evening.

Im thinking of spray painting my tall vases silver and using assorted red felt flowers in them either by using a foam ball and making a round top or placing them on wire stems and simply arranging a bunch in the vases.
