(Centerpiece Wednesday linky party will be back next week)
Here is a fun Centerpice tutorial for you.....My cute friend Ann took me to a wholesale florist yesterday and then back to her house where she taught me how to make this fun centerpiece! Ann is very talented and has done many weddings so it was a real treat for me to learn from her.
We started with these pretty mercury vases.
Here is the collection of some of the flowers and greens we purchased. Red tulips, mini carnations, pepper berries and some Fever Few (a pretty little white flower).
This one is already starting to take on a shape with only 3 stems of peppery berry in it.
Adding in a few mini carnations and more pepper berries.
We added in mini carnations at different heights followed by the pretty white Fever Few. Tip 6- Make sure when making a centerpiece you continually turn the vase around as you work on it so you don't end up with only one pretty side. I tend to do forget that and usually only one side looks the best...sorry for those that have to look at the back LOL. Next we tucked in those cool silver woody coral looking branches with little nubs that look like mini acorns. (Don't know the name of this if you can't tell LOL)
I am so grateful for my friend Ann who was so willing to share her talents with me, it was so fun to hang out with you and learn all these techniques and tips. I'm excited to try my hand at this again and again!!
Merry Merry Christmas everyone!
Centerpiece Wednesday will resume next week!
So glad you are here for this weeks party!
Wowzers (as my brother used to say) so many many amazing ideas...I wish I could incorporate all of them into my home right now!
Here are just a few of the highlights
I am really loving this color scheme of cream and gold so refreshing for Christmas. Check out her blog for lots of tutorials for the Trees, Letters and Wreath. Vintage Paint and More
I think these bauble gift tags are so unique..you can download them free at Meeha Meeha
Loving these appliquéd pillows..great tutorial even if you don't own a silhouette machine
Need to add a little sparkle to your table? Homey Oh My has an awesome tutorial on how to add mercury stripes on a glass vase!
The yellow paint on my walls changes colors throughout the day depending on how much light flows in here...this is probably the picture that is closest to the real look. It is called lemon chiffon from Kwal paints and I love it..it just makes me happy :) Remember when we painted these thrift store table and chairs HERE
These wood frames were black but I am on a mission to white out everything! I wanted some fun Christmas prints so I made these using the Rhonna App....if you haven't checked out this App you need to...it is amazing! I found the chevron background by googling blue chevron prints and saved it to my photos, added in the Rhonna artwork and printed them..easy peasy!
Take a peek at what my cute mom and stepdad made me for Christmas out of pallets! They rock in my book....this is one of my most favorite gifts..it can be used all year round depending on what I put in it.
Do you love all white furniture?
