Wedding Centerpieces

When we decided on the color for the wedding (sage green) then came the task of deciding what we would make for centerpieces.

We found these beautiful fruit bowls on stems at a kitchen shop called Stokes.
They resembled an over sized wine glass, but were actually for putting your fruit into.

We also found (after Christmas) last year all of the ball ornaments ( some with glitter on them) and decided that they looked like bubbles in the glass. We painted chop sticks in the sage green and glued them together to look like straws. Then in the middle of the bowl we added a frosted glass with a battery operated candle. It gave a nice glow to the centerpiece. We also painted round wooden circles to look like fruit for the rim of the glass.

The final touch was a silk gerbera daisy, in the matching sage green, wrapped around the stem. The bowls were placed on a square mirror tile at each table and sprinkles with faux rose petals.
