If you have been following along this week you know we are excited to host the Design or Bust Handcrafted Wedding Centerpiece Challenge.
For those of you who have been busy planning unique and personalized weddings and events of your own we will give you a pass this week for a free recap.
So what is the Handcrafted Design or Bust Wedding Centerpiece Challenge?
The wedding planners challenge was to create a wedding centerpiece only using items that were readily available to them in their home studios. They were not allowed to go out and purchase any of the typical items they would normally have at their disposal such as rental items, services of a professional florist , or the budget to purchase items they would need if they were designing a centerpiece for the traditional client.
The primary goal for the design challenge was to test industry wedding planners creativity to think outside the box and to reuse, recycle and repurpose to show couples planning their wedding how they too with a little creativity can also make use of items they already have on hand.
Fast Forward Lets bring on the Designs
Wedding Planner #1 Old World Tuscany
Inspiration Behind The Design: “After looking through my home, I just came across this broken candle holder(the long one in the middle) and two potpourri holders. I played around with a black and white heme. Then, I see the two jars of peppers! Yes those are real sliced up peppers in a jar of vinegar and oil. I loved the old world, Italian feel they gave off! Then I just needed something to amp it up. I didn’t want flowers, I wanted to step out the box. So I went and got the bowl of fake grapes off the coffee table. Draped them nicely, added candles on top of wine glasses and voila! Old World Tuscany. I believe they would have used what they had around and what they love to do to decorate their family table. I think it conveys my concept and I love it!”
Materials: wine glasses, assorted candles, unique pottery, candle sticks, fresh or faux grapes, canned or fresh peppers and herbs.
