Floral Inspiration : The Centerpieces

I realize this is my 3rd post about flowers, but stick with me...flowers are a huge part of my inspiration! Last time I posted about my first floral appointment and bridesmaids' bouquet. Last weekend, we had our 2nd floral appointment- this time, to talk centerpieces. {The Inspiration} : A “Garden Party” affair that is both classy and elegant, but also somewhat informal.

I love these photos for inspiration, but in reality, flowers are expensive, and, let's be honest- they die. But- pictures last forever so I wanted to create something that was beautiful with the feel of these whimsical garden photos, minus the price. I worked with our wonderful florist (New Jersey brides- if you are in need of a florist, please contact me...she is amazing). Here is what we came up with.

I am thrilled with the results! It has the same feel as my original inspiration and goes perfectly with the bouquets and overall vibe of the wedding, all while staying in our budget. Our florist also completely gets my vision and inspiration. Her assistant even pointed out how this just proves that you don't need a big budget to create beautiful decor.
