I am about the have a centerpiece meltdown. I like way too many different things and I can not for the love of all that is holy make up my mind. My latest craze: succulents ( hate the name, love the way look) Let me take you down the little path of wedding centerpieceness that I have been running around in circles on.
I went out and bought a bezillion sheets of pretty plum paper and have been collecting manzanita branches for the centerpieces. Now I want something different. I still love this look but I'm not feelin its flow if you catch my drift. Moving on
Second Stop: Mercury Glass
This might have actually been the first stop but who is counting. I fell in love with the look of all things mercury glass and so my mom and I began collecting vases, urns, tea lights and now we have an entire collection started...enough to fill 16 tables with these pretties. I still love them but I need something else to stuff them with or sit next to them. ugh.
Mind you this is the shortened list; there was also a quick divergence with an assortment of glass containers that we spent days sorting through and returning to their respective Marshalls and TJ Maxs
So lets see what we have to work with:
A. A lot of Manzanita Branches
B. Enough Mercury Glass to fill an antique store
C. A bundle of plum paper ( not so concerned about this one- I can find another use)
Can I mix mercury glass, manzanita and succulents? Can I add flowers too? dahlias, mums, peony looking english roses? I am in a big, fat cluster of wedding stuff and I might explode. just saying. Please tell me your thoughts. I'm all ears
