DIY Wedding Wednesday: Springtime Centerpieces – Birds & Blooms

spring inspired wedding centerpieces

In our part of the world dear old Mother Nature has been taking her time gracing us with some proper Spring weather. Trees remain bare, grass patchy, and gardens full of flowers are but a daydream. So we’re filling the void and brightening things up with some Spring inspiration of our own via today’s DIY centerpiece post, Birds and Blooms. We created three looks, any of which would make for great guest or head table centerpieces, or side table adornments. Taking cue from the freshness of the season we kept the arrangements clean and simple, and thanks to some added birdie accents, so very lovely.

We’re hoping these give Mother nature that much needed nudge, but at the very least that they provide some Spring wedding inspiration for all our wonderful readers. Enjoy!

Wedding Decor Ideas: Pretty on a Penny Part 2 – Making it Yours

decorative bottle vase sets - how to personalizse

This past Monday I shared with you all a few secrets to getting gorgeous and budget friendly floral wedding arrangements. The key component was a lovely bottle vase concept which I’m currently obsessing over ever so slightly! Today I’m going to show you how to take the look to the next level, personalizing it as your very own. Truth be told, there are endless ways to customize the look to meet your specific wedding design. And after much back and forth self-debating I finally narrowed it down to my top three style approaches, complete with some pretty petal suggestions.

Style Approach #1 – Charms, Trims and Things 

The Components

personalized bottle vases - charms and trims

featured here: decorative glass bottle set in clear (sold in sets of six assorted sizes), striped cotton baker’s twine in mocha mousse, ruffled fabric ribbon trim in pastel pink and antique key charms in double hearts, heart and intertwined rings shapes

The Completed Look

This approach is all about layering. Using whatever ribbon, fabric, twine or string you like to attach a decorative detail like a charm is the perfect way to both personalize the look and coordinate it with your overall wedding theme and design. And the details just scream pretty!

Style Approach #2 – Mix and Match 

The Components

There’s no real science to this approach. It’s as simple as playing around with various shapes, sizes and colors to bring dimension to your arrangements. The beauty behind it is that it allows you to represent all the design elements and colors within your wedding design. So go nuts and get creative!

Style Approach #3: A Personal Touch 

The Components 

personalized white bottle vases

What better way to personalize the look then by actually personalizing the look! Whether it’s through a motif, monogram, or a custom sticker, incorporating subtly personalized pieces within your wedding decor really makes the look yours. And don’t be shy about incorporating you. It’s your big day after all!

So that’s a wrap on on my top three. And whether you run with one of these approaches or something completely different, all that matters is that you apply your personal stamp. Happy styling!

xoxo.
