Table centerpiece!

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was in search of a centerpiece for my dining room table. I got in the car, drove to hobby lobby, and looked and searched for over an hour! Then got back in my car, empty handed and defeated, and headed back home! I couldn't believe that I hadn't found anything! I have to say that I know I have a hard time making up my mind and I really should have known better than to go looking without a plan or even an idea of what I liked!

I am now happy to say that I am no longer defeated and I found a centerpiece!! I came home from that terrible shopping trip and searched the internet. The more I looked that more I found myself thinking back to the centerpieces that were made for my wedding. I absolutely loved my centerpieces!

I think it looks so southern! I love it!

This was my inspiration! So, I got back in my car, drove back to hobby lobby, felt totally confident, and picked up all the stuff I would need!
I grabbed a hurricane vase and a candle, both 1/2 off!
A bundle of blue hydrangeas to match my dining room, 1/2 off!
A foam wreath, not 1/2 off, but that's OK! :)

And after grabbing some wire cutters and going to town, this is what I came up with!
I am pretty proud of myself and really like the way it turned out!

It feels like a little piece of our wedding to remind us of that special day! 
Thanks for stopping by :)


  1. You did such a good job!!!! It does resemble the ones at the wedding and I know it will make you smile every time you look at it!!!

  2. We actually saved one of our wedding centerpieces just so we'd have it always (they were small and not made with flowers, so it was easy to keep)

    Love the memories.

    I found you through Trendy Treehouse, and I hope you'll come vist my blog. I've got a fun, easy meme up today!
