In planning our parents vow renewal/30th wedding anniversary bash we (my sisters & me) knew that after the catering hall one of the most expensive things would be the flowers.
We decided to go with navy blue, turquoise blue and yellow color palette. So we knew we need to incorporate some of those fun shades into the table setting.
We added our color with the menu’s and favor boxes and for the centerpieces I not only got to add more blue and yellow, but stripes as well! You all know I love a good stripe so I was thrilled with how they came out.
Getting the flowers were easy. Since we were on a budget I went to a flower wholesaler. Since I have a resale license it was no problem to walk right in and pick out what I wanted. Due to the upcoming holiday weekend there wasn’t a lot to pick from, but those mums fit the bill perfectly.
They were neutral, added an element of texture and so full and massive that we knew we would 9 or 10 in piece centerpiece would make an impact! The best part….they were only $1 a stem.
Finding a home for them was exhausting. I thought it would be simple to find a square glass vase on a budget, but it was impossible.
Instead I found these:
Step 2: Wrap around fabric and make a hem with the glue gun. This helps you get a smooth seam and no frayed fabric.
Step 3: Flip box over:
And glue down flaps like you were wrapping a present:
Step 4: Flip it back over and glue down the seams in the top of the box:
Voila you are all done!
I had purchased two different colored fabric so I made bands to wrap around the boxes in the other color.
