A few months ago I created a DIY wedding card box using items from the David Tutera Bridal Collection, so when I was asked to create something from the new David Tutera Casual Elegance collection (available at JoAnn Fabric and other craft stores) I said you betcha.
Brad and I’s very good friends are getting married soon, so I thought I’d make a mock-up rustic centerpiece for our friend’s bridal shower. She likes the whole rustic chic look so I thought this would be perfect for her. Now I’m kind of wishing I came up with this for my shower.
I used the following to create the centerpiece:
• cake stand (wedding gift via Macy’s)
• moss table runner (JoAnn Fabric)
• David Tutera Casual Elegance burlap
• David Tutera Casual Elegance lace ribbon
• 1 mason jar
• 3 votives
• 3 tealights
• fresh flowers
• scissors, Sharpie, double sided tape
I began by cutting the moss table runner into a circle, using a paper plate to trace the circle. Note: I recommend cutting moss outside– it gets messy.
Then, I got to work on the mason jar, votives, and tealights.
I started by cutting the burlap to size (see my burlap cutting tip here). Using double sided tape, I secured the burlap to the mason jar and tealights. I did the same to secure the lace ribbon to the votives and on top of the burlap on the mason jar.
When the moss, mason jar, votives, tealights were ready I arranged them on top of the cake stand.
I used discounted flowers I picked up from the manager’s special section at Kroger (my favorite part of the store). I bought a giant bouquet for $6.99 (regular $20) and made this bouquet and two others. Basically it’s the perfect spot to pick up nice flowers for a good price that will last at least 3-5 days. Hit up the manager’s special section, people.
This centerpiece was super fast and easy to put together. Perfect for a bridal shower, wedding reception, or even a summer dinner party. You can easily vary the look by using different flowers– baby’s breath, sunflowers, etc.
Can you tell these were next to nearly-dead Gerber daisies?
