Once again I must apologize for not posting in a very VERY long time. Life has gotten extremely busy and I am still trying to figure out how to keep things from falling through the cracks. Obviously, I have not been terribly successful with that!
So while the kids are playing Lego's I will make an attempt at a post. Let's see how far I get!
With wedding season approaching I thought I would do a few posts on what is new, or what I am loving right now.
Right now, for centerpieces, I am loving candelabras. For the last two wedding shows I have designed floral pieces on candelabras. I've had a great response!
For me these centerpieces represent simple elegance. They are high enough to see around. They are big enough to make a statement. They can be modern or traditional.
The first time I saw a centerpiece like these I immediately fell in love. I went to my wholesaler to purchase some candelabras and found the selection somewhat overwhelming. There were so many options! As a designer this is good and bad! I would have loved to take one of each of the dozens of candelabras and designed a unique piece for each. I had so many ideas, but I needed to choose one style for the booth.
There are so many types of candelabras ranging from rustic wooden pieces to ornate 3 foot tall multi arm dripping with crystal versions. I decided to go middle of the road. Simple and elegant.
Just take a look at a few I found online:
Here is an idea. Why not go to the thrift store and see what they have in stock. A can of spray paint and good will could save you a bundle! Plus, think of all the fun colors you could paint them!
Here are a few samples of other talented designers work
Notice the use of the cute succulents! I think I'll write about those next!
So I know these centerpieces are not on candelabras, but just imagine if I would have used them in 2012! Even more stunning!!!
