PINK ORANGE GREEN

the colors i (we) have decided on for our wedding...
pink, orange and green!
more than likely varying shades of all 3.
i know these are kind of spring colors and our open-house is in september
but our event is outdoors there will be plenty of green (grass).

speaking of pink, orange and green
look what i came home to yesterday...

pretty flowers from my future hubby!!
it was such a wonderful surprise!
he bought the 2 dozen roses separately and the leafy filler
and made the arrangement himself!
pretty impressive, huh!?!
i love him :)


here was my inspiration for center pieces....

i started making the tissue paper flowers...
mine turned out....um, huge! ha!
they are pretty though and i added buttons to the middle.
the flowers are too big for centerpieces but it was my first attempt and i'll be making some more smaller ones soon. i will still be using my huge pretty flowers for something.
i do have to say they are time consuming and the tissue paper rips easily.
my brother broke a bunch of branches off the trees outside my house last night so i could experiment.

i also made some small flowers with paper flower cutouts and buttons in the middle.
i attached them to sticks and stuck them in mason jars.

tied ribbon around the jar and attached two pink roses to the ribbon.
i think they look cute but i might want something bigger for centerpieces.
i like the sticks, i think they are perfect since we'll be outside.
for the masson jar filler i think i'm going to use small rocks/pebbles, inexpensive and outdoorsy feel to them as well.

i have many more outdoor decor ideas i'll share later on!!
the wedding planning is so much fun and time consuming!

Katie@The Baby Factory said...

Love your pick! I am a big advocate for including green! It's just so full of life! My sister is including a 'coral' color that is an orange/pink lily color. If that makes any sense ;)

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

Great colors!! With a winter wedding I was afraid to use too many bright colors so went very neutral with chocolate brown, ivory and red. It was gorgeous and very wintry, but sometimes I wish I would have broke the mold and used some color! Maybe a little hot pink or yellow. Oh well.

~*Katie*~ said...

Tamela said...

Annie said...

holy smokes...you are one craft lady!! those flowers are awesome. i cant wait to see what you come up with!! you go girl.
love the color choices!!

Hayley said...

I don't know if someone has already said this because I never read through your millions of comments, but if you go with the darker shades of those colors, it would go with the autumn setting. It might not be as pretty though! I don't really think it matters that much, as long as you're happy with the result!

You are so darn crafty. And what a nice brother! My brother would've gotten the branches for me and then beat me with them ;)

Lauren @ Dreams Take Flight said...

I love the colors! Beautiful!

Brittany said...

katie beth said...

Oh how fun! The buttons on those flowers are so cute.

Suzy said...

I think your centerpieces look beautiful!!!!!!

Amanda said...

Super creative and cute! What a personal feel these will add to your reception! You rock :)

Danielle said...

The colors are fun! I really like the tissue paper flowers. I wish I had had enough time to hand-make some accents for my wedding.

Shanna said...

Keep your ideas coming...I'm loving them! For our wedding since it's super southern we plan to use Mason Jars with a pretty ribbon tied on the outside & a candle on the inside for table centerpieces. Our venue is outside and it's so "outdoorsy" that we're not going high class with the tall glass centerpieces and fru-fru stuff! Your flowers turned out great & how sweet of Billy to make you a flower arrangement with y'alls colors!

P.S. Remember my shoes dilemma? My mom went in a local shoe store this past weekend and they informed her that lime green is the color this year so maybe I'm in luck?
