TWA - The Center Pieces

So it has been an eternity since my last post. I've tried many times to start blogging again but it was hard to find the energy and when I finally did (and i had already written the post etc) my computer crashed and of course the post wasn't saved yet...oh the frustration.
This is my second attempt to write this post and hopefully this time I will get to the publishing part :))

Anyways, as the title says, this post is about the center pieces in our wedding.
I wanted the center pieces to be something that would give some light in the evening when it gets dark since I knew that we wouldn't have any other light sources available (except candles). So the first step was to order some xmas lights from ebay. I ordered the kinds that work on batteries and i got them in two colours -  red and white (those were the colours for our wedding). I also bought some red and white fabrics.
Then all I had to do was lure some friends over with sparkling wine and put them to work ;D
All together we had five or six of these crafting evenings where we sew fabric flowers around the lights and here are the results...

We cut some branches and twirled the lights around them.

Then we took some jars, filled them with sand and jabbed the branches into the sand.

A simple idea, time consuming to make but the results...SOOO WORTH IT :))
You can't tell on the pictures but the lights actually really illuminated the tables so people were able to see who they were talking to ;D
I have to thank everybody who helped in making of the center pieces, it wouldn't have been possible to get them done alone.

Hope you have a lovely day!
