Wedding Centerpiece

 

As I am finalizing all the details for my client's daughter's wedding
for which I am the wedding planner
it occurred to me that I had not shown you the entrance piece I made for my sister's
50th Wedding Anniversary party...


My sister, Colleen,  was a beautiful bride again,
Richie, her handsome groom...


A cloud of goldtone sparkled dragonflies greeted guests...




  


A great tip, I put together the urn at home -here in my kitchen-
by filling in the base with Styrofoam
 then adding the wild natural branches...


also tested how the vintage mirror would look underneath...


so all I had to do once I arrived at the reception room was put on all
the dragonfly ornaments I had made...


they were also the guest's favors-
hope you enjoyed...
