Flowers are one of the aspects that I am trying to keep subtle. I know how pricey and extravagant one can get with flowers and centerpieces, and I have a hard time rationalizing spending that much on something that will die two days later. (blunt, honest, and true!)
In terms of centerpieces – I am thinking of mixing some high with some low across the tables. I like the idea of using a delicate flower too, given that my space already has an upscale vibe to it. I am leaning towards white flowers – as my color scheme is blush, ivory, navy and black. The white will be pretty against the navy blue of my bridesmaids dresses too!
I am toying around with using hydrangeas, and if you get a bunch of them together (like below) it exudes a symmetrical and full look. One can also use hydrangeas as their base flower, and simply add in other textures or color to give off a more vibrant look.
Here is what the baby breath looks like in a taller vase – simple yet classy.
What do you think of my two initial options? Anything else I should consider?
