Craftiness and creativity of the rustic, country, folksy kind... from our home to yours.

21 March 2010


Pretty much throughout this entire planning process I had envisioned our centerpieces to be bouquets of dried lavender with sprigs of brown twiggy things in clear glass vases tied in twine. Now I'm having second thoughts.

First, I think I should stick with the more rustic theme I have going. Instead of vases I should use the quart canning jars that I already have. The height of the lavender I was considering is only 11"-13" tall, so they would look fine in the canning jars.

But, browsing the interwebs this morning, looking for origami/asian themed centerpieces for another bride, I stumbled upon this one:

I adore this! I can envision it with purple and white flowers, and the tiny little pom pom buds in chartreuse! I've been wanting to add a bit of chartreuse, anyway, as I think it's a great little accent color to the lavender and brown combo, but never really saw any place to stick it. I think I would also use river stones in the bottom, instead of moss.

So what do you think of these?? I think they would be easy enough to make. I think it would definitely be pretty and simple, which I like. And perhaps, low budget enough that there could be two on each table (rectangle tables) with the other varying sized mason jars spread between with lavender votives and stones??
