Coral and Navy Wedding Centerpiece ~ Jennifer’s Inspiration Board

Jennifer writes: I need help creating centerpieces for my wedding. I love hydrangea, roses, ranunculus, anemones.. My wedding colors are coral (more towards the pink, lighter shade), a blue that ranges from navy to a brighter blue and then ivory/white.

You can see in the example photo that they used a navy table cloth to bring in the blue! If that doesn’t work for you, you can always bring in blue by using blue vases (possibly painting mason jars navy), wrapping a blue ribbon around your centerpiece vases, or even sprinkling some blue anemones into the arrangement.

Peacock Quinceanera Party ~ Rachel’s Inspiration Board

Rachel writes: I am not having a wedding. It is a quinceanera for my daughter. The date is set for November 15, 2014. The theme is “Peacock”. colors are light blue, lime green, purple, royal blue, accent color is gold. The main flower is the Calla Lilly, but I am not sure what other flowers would go with the Calla since it is such an elegant flower, just by itself is gorgeous. I do have the peacock feathers to go with it. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Love these colors!  Although we picked a bouquet for your board – the arrangement can still be used for a centerpiece design, and all the items in it look great with calla lilies. You can either add callas to this mix, or swap out the roses. Add a gold vase and some purple table decor to tie in all the colors.

Hi, I love your site and some inspiration, please! I’m getting married on September 6th and my colors are light plum, fig, ivory, antique gold, and white. I plan on doing the flowers myself and love dahlias and mums…and plan to use mercury vases mixed with glass candle holders. I’m not sure what other flowers would mesh and are in season at the end of summer/start of fall. I would appreciate your help!! Thank you!!
