Sneak Peek: Wedding Centerpieces!

Last weekend I met up with my client whose wedding reception will be taking place in October. Because the actual wedding is taking place in Maui, the reception will be fairly casual, taking place during the day and filled with many DIY elements, one of them being the centerpieces...
These two photos were a part of our original inspiration boards, as we wanted to bring in a little bit of the beach element on a budget. And, this is how the centerpieces are looking today!
A very simple task! I purchased one large succulent for the smaller vases, and will probably do a few more for the larger vases, added some paper flowers, and a few seashells tucked into grey stone filler. The ribbon (which is a bit of a softer tone than it looks in the photo) was a last minute addition. While the palette for the reception will be mainly chocolate brown and light aqua, I suggested bringing in a 'fall' color to add a bit of warmth, and we loved the way the soft orange worked. It also adds a nice finishing touch to the centerpiece!

*ps - i'm now taking on clients for 2010 weddings - need some inspiration or style direction? we've got packages for every bride!
