Quoting Zobug07:i'm getting married in march. for the center pieces, i got my idea from www.theknot.com i'm doing fish bowls with hydrangea and spanish moss. for favors we went to thrift stores and got tea cups, we are getting these: www.rariteas.com and wrapping them in tulle.good luck!theknot has some great ideas!
I'm a wedding planner and I'm also getting married in June. For my pew markers I'm taking decorative pails and tying them to the pews with tulle and filling them with candles and flowers. For the centerpeices I'm taking decorative pails and planting wheat grass in them 3 weeks before the wedding. The day of the wedding I will stick a few fresh flowers into them. For the favors I am buying inexpensive flowerpots and planting some inexpensive flowers (like petunias) in them and favors for the kiddies will be oversized lolipops in the wedding colors (green and pink) stuck into a flowerpot and held secure with floral foam. For the wedding send-off we are filling buckets with sparklers and attaching a ribbon.
I have also made pomanders (kissing balls) for the older flowergirls and I am decorating a wagon with tulle and flower garland for the younger ones to ride in.
These are not the ones that I made but are similar. I will post mine when I get around to taking some pics of them.
I was going to make a suggestion similar to this...it was something I recently saw on someone's blog - but they made these gorgeous sugar cookies, and bought those huge vase-like martini glasses you can find at craft stores (martini because they work the best for this I would guess, better than the brandy glass or wine glass ones). They arranged the cookies in the martini glasses and used them as centerpieces with pretty ribbon on the stem, then everyone got to take home cookies as their favor, so it did double duty. It gave some height to the tables and was just really pretty. You could also take it a step further and also add in some handmade chocolates in whatever shapes you wish. Actually what I would do is make handmade chocolates shaped like martini glasses, put them in little favor baggies and put them at each place to coordinate with the centerpiece/favor.
Quoting urbpro:I don't have a photo, but for my friends wedding reception we borrowed 10 clear glass cake stands from friends and relatives and baked dozens of sugar cookies and cupcakes. We iced everything with white icing and silver sprinkles and arranged them really pretty on the cakes stands with silver curling ribbon and confetti all around. At the end of the evening, everyone got a silver chinese takeout box (we found them at Party City) and got to choose a cupcake or cookie as their favor. It was a big hit and everyone was happy to go home with the treats they had been eyeing all night! lol!
