Twosome Tuesday: Reception Table Centerpieces

Wedding #1:                                                                                            
This was the wedding party before the event.  We really
did have more guests than this!

You've already seen a glimpse of what we'd been working on for Princess Sassy's (now Mrs. Steadfast!) reception centerpieces.  We bought various frames, mostly black, gray, and silver, from Goodwill, and I printed photos of the prince and princess...about 1/3 of him as a youngster, about 1/3 of her growing up years, and 1/3 of photos with them together.  

We placed 3 or 4 frames per table, making sure we had at least one Steadfast, one Sassy, and one of the couple on each.  Very simple but effective, visually, and gave the guests something to do, as they checked out photos on their own table and throughout the room.

We also used vases of flowers in special spots around the reception,
made with the leftoversafter creating corsages and wedding party bouquets

Wedding #2:
Princess Bossy was working on her centerpiece idea this weekend.
Inspiration from The Knot

Several weeks ago, we visited Goodwill on her behalf, to look for vases and bottles to suit her centerpiece vision, based on the inspiration she got from a photo on TheKnot.com.                                                                                                               

Each of her tables will have a variety of these glass vessels, some with votive candles, some with a Gerbera Daisy or two, some with glass colored stones, and some empty.                                                                                                                      
Prince CuddleBunny saw all the vases, and ran out to cut roses,
since they seemed to need some flowers.  :-)

She'll have ivory linens and bamboo plates to create a soft and elegant, but rustic look with the wood floors, walls, and ceiling of her venue.                                                                                                                                                                                              
Like her sister, she is utilizing some found frames and will showcase photographs, but at the guest book table only.  There will not only be
photos of the couple, but wedding photos of their parents, grandparents, and great grandparents to share a history of loving marriages behind them.
