December DIY Centerpieces

By Something Social, Posted in DIY Projects

Hi Friends!For my last centerpiece of 2014 I chose to go with my absolute favorite flower the peony! And in December? That’s pretty much unheard of! These beautiful blooms were complimentary of the very talented Bloomers from Lyndsey & Jeff’s Wedding on December 20th at Beacon Hill Club in Summit, NJ. For this very simple holiday centerpiece I used a vase full of luscious flowers in a clear vase. Put them on a gold charger and surrounded it with fake greens. So simple yet so perfect!Enjoy! x... read more.

August DIY Centerpieces

Hello Centerpiece Lova’s,This month I didn’t have a set plan on what I wanted to do (which is very rare) until I met with one of my Brides for our wrap up meeting and she expressed her love of baby’s breath.Baby’s breath used by itself has a way giving a nice full whimsical look and they last forever!I grabbed a bunch of vases I had on hand that I had bought for various Weddings and started to construct a centerpiece arrangement full of purple bud vases, candles, of course lots of ba... read more.

July DIY Centerpieces

Hello Centerpiece Lovers!For the past month, I have had lanterns on the mind. It could be because they fit so perfectly with summer but I knew this was the perfect month to feature one.I found this beauty at Home Goods for $16! I was originally going to just use the lantern with the flowers inside without the bud vases but I got such a beautiful arrangement of  birthday flowers from my boyfriend that I wanted to incorporate as many as possible :)I love the untraditional look of the lantern with the doo... read more.

May DIY Centerpieces

By Something Social, Posted in DIY Projects

Hiya Friends! The warm weather has officially arrived and I could not be more excited! What screams nice weather more than a mason jar? Frankly I can't believe I've made it until May without using them!At this point you know I like to use a few smaller floral arrangements rather than one large one, and this month is no different. I chose some beautiful spray roses and classic blue mason jars to set the stage for a simple blue and pink palate. I'm also loving the lacey pink ribbon to finish them off!Instead... read more.

April DIY Centerpieces

By Something Social, Posted in DIY Projects

Hello Centerpiece Lovers,For this months’ centerpieces I really wanted to incorporate a fun charger I bought at Ikea but wasn’t sure the best way. Based on the charger I knew I wanted pink flowers of course but which vases to use, or if it should be bud vases or one large vase was the ultimate question.What I ended up with was a white runner with silver flowers (Homegoods), 4 milk glass vases, (these are soon to be part of my something borrowed collection) and 2 tall candles. The perfect mi... read more.
