Centerpiece Mock-Up

While I was at home, my mom and I finally found some pink tulle to use for the centerpiece mock-up. (It was amazing how hard it was to find! Hobby Lobby, Wal-Mart, and Hancock Fabrics were all out!) My mom had a couple ideas for the vases without the submerged tulle, so we played around with them a little using some LED tealights. We were able to find a package of 8 of them (with a replacement battery for each one!) at Big Lots for $6. I should write a post about all of the wedding things I've found at Big Lots - I love that place! Here is what we came up with:

I wish I would've been able to get a clear picture without using the flash, but I wanted you to get the idea of what it'll actually look like all lit up!

Here's a clearer picture before we were finished:

I'm not sure if we'll use that damask ribbon or a thicker one around the middle vase

We decided there was too much tulle submerged and you couldn't really tell what it was, so we tried it with about half as much tulle and liked it much better:

It matches better with the tulle bows on the other vases and you can actually see the texture of the tulle in the vase this way - We liked it much more!

There will be a damask table square under the vases, so they'll be grouped closer together, and we'll have 4 votives around the vases as well. I think all of the candle light will look so pretty! I just need to buy the floating candles and the rest of the tealights, and we'll have all of the supplies - David and I bought the river/floral rocks at Michael's on Sunday night because they're $0.89/bag right now! Make sure to get some if you're using them for anything - That's the lowest price I've seen.

What do you think? Doesn't the pink tulle look better than the white I tried it with originally?


  1. I love this idea! And definitely prefer the pink to the white. Mr. Milk liked the white cause he says it looks like smoke

  2. Yeah, pink has more style and drama to it than white. Lovely centerpiece! :-)
