I hope you enjoyed my previous post on colour schemes for summer weddings. In today’s post I have put together an easy, and affordable DIY(do it yourself) table design using soft pinks and whites.
I am a big fan of white flowers particularly roses at weddings, they brighten up an area, and blend in nicely with surrounding colours. While putting together this look, my inspiration was to create something simple, elegant, and affordable. This centrepiece would be ideal for an outdoor spring/summer wedding. As you can see I stuck to one kind of flower, Using the birdcage as a main centrepiece, and soft pink colours to add contrast. You may notice that in some photos I changed the colours of the candles, and moved objects around, this is purely to demonstrate the different looks you can achieve with this design.
please excuse the candles, it was too windy to keep them alight
- After cutting the roses short to fit the vase, I was left with a lot of remaining green leafs, which I used to fill the corners of the cage to avoid seeing the stems and emptiness.
- The two small mirrors on the table are in fact made to be hanged on the wall, but I placed them flat as a candle holder. The mirror image elevates the candle, and emphasises its edges.
- The glass vase that held pink roses, are filled with scented decorative sand (which actually smells amazing)
This simple centrepiece took me about 15 minutes to put together. I used a small circular sized table for an intimate feel, if you plan on using a larger table, then I suggest purchasing a bigger cage. I hope I was able to inspire you with this post to create something of your own, it’s actually quiet fun, and would add a personal touch to your special day.
