Centerpieces for Heather's Wedding Reception- Pinned and Produced

Pin It
 Several months ago, my friend Ann, from Nellie's Barn Sale  called to ask me if I'd consider helping her to arrange reception flowers for her friend Heather's wedding.  If you have been following this blog for any length of time, you know that Ann and I have been friends since childhood and that I'd do just about anything for her. So, of course, I said Yes.  We both made boards on Pinterest. Mine was called Heather's Wedding and on it was this pin:

The wedding is shades of purple. Heather loved it, and the decision was made.



Ann purchased the glass at Michaels and I telephoned my dear friend and florist extraordinaire, Sadie, from The English Garden flower shop.  She's amazing and I don't say that lightly. She ran Martha's Flowers by Mail for THE Martha Stewart! Nope, I'm not kidding!  Sadie helped me to purchase the flowers and supplies needed to do this project as well as giving me hints for how to assemble them.






First, we soaked the oasis foam in water, covered it with moss, and put it into the container. We packed more moss around the base and then assembled the rest of the arrangement inside the container. They went together fairly quickly and I think that they are a pretty close replica of the inspiration photo, don't you?




Congratulations, Heather! Have a wonderful and beautiful wedding day!
