DIY Inspired

With all of the gorgeous inspiration happening on SMP today, I thought it was about time for another inspiring DIY centerpiece. This one was sent to us by the fabulous Tara Wilson out of Ft. Worth, whose talents literally make me jump for joy.  Here is a chic, unbelievably lovely centerpiece that she crafted just for SMP readers!

Materials

Punch bowl, glass/silver/stainless from a antique malls, flea markets, or your grandmother’s silver chest

3 to 5 small orchids from a garden supply store or florist

Deer moss from a craft store



Notes from Tara



Place multiple orchids (depending on the size of the vessel)  in a silver punch bowl (a beautiful glass bowl will work too), fill in spaces with extra soil, then top with bits of moss. Surround the bowl with votive candles to add extra sparkle.  For more drama select orchids that accent the colors in your plates, glassware and linens.



So chic. Oh and Tara also put together a pretty fabulous table setting for all of you eco-chic brides out there. Coming up next!
