Let's Get Sparkly! | Preserved Floral Centerpiece Tutorial From Winsor Event Studio

"We wanted to create a centerpiece tutorial that would be perfect for a destination bride or local bride, alike."

We love when we receive DIYs from event planners! Not only is it a cool way to show off a beautiful craft, but it's also an awesome way for a coordinator to show a couple that their wedding day can have both a planner, and DIY elements. Having a coordinator and doing DIY are not mutually exclusive. There are tons of planners that are more than will to help a couple save costs on creative decor while also assisting in making the wedding day go off without a hitch! We'll let the talented Christi Winsor from Winsor Event Studio take it from here as she  explains a fun DIY for a gorgeous and classy centerpiece! 

From Winsor Event Studio // This centerpiece focuses on preserved floral and plastic vases that can easily be packed and transported, offering an inexpensive yet chic option for wedding decor. We incorporated some fresh flowers in the vases, but if a bride did not have access or funds for fresh flowers, these could easily be swapped for floating candles or battery votives. 

We created custom designs for the vases using tape and spray paint, incorporating the trendy copper tones. Even some of the preserved flora were copper painted leaves, paired with preserved boxwood branches. Fresh greenery, tea roses, and ranunculus were placed in the vases for extra color on the table, and we accessorized with candles, charger plates, colorful napkins, and place settings.
