Elegant and Inexpensive Wedding Centerpiece
by Laura C. Powell
Lighted wedding centerpiece
For my daughter's April 10th wedding, I created 6 of these centerpieces. We purchased 24 in. glass cylinders. In the bottom, we put clear rocks and lightbulbs that turn on when you twist them. They burn for SEVERAL hours. The arrangement consists of a cluster of silk wisteria. In between each wisteria, we stuck in small picks of silk baby's breath. Next we put in a pearl stem with many strands that fanned out. The top of the arrangement is an ivory silk rose bouquet. Then we finished it by placing a few more of the the automatic light bulbs in the rose bouquet. Before we put the arrangement in the cylinder, we wrapped ivory toile around the stems which gave it a "smoky" effect.
The overall effect was soft and elegant.
