Centerpieces. You want them to be great, but you don't want them to break your budget. And the words 'budget centerpieces' can conjure up images of some scary, sparse, 80's looking flowers. Can you have lovely, lush centerpieces on a budget? Yep. Here's some lovely centerpieces that are affordable but don't scream 'We were on a super tight budget!'
Baby's breath: Not the ugly stepsister it was once considered in the flower world, baby's breath is enjoying a revival. And rightly so. Popular with vintage loving brides, whimsical brides and modern brides alike, baby's breath gives a romantic, lacy, fluffy cloud look to your tables. Put them in tall (17" is ideal) silver trumpet vases to up the elegance factor.
Ah, dahlias how I love thee. These lovely 'dinner plate dahlias' are large enough that one bloom mixed with some garden roses, thistle, sage, passion vine and berries and put in vintage bottles (scour antique stores for these) goes a long way in stretching your flower budget and decorating a long table.
Using moss instead of vases saves you money and gives a rustic chic look to your tables. Here sheet moss mingles with dahlias, thistle, berries and mint.
