Give yourself enough time and solicit some help from your wedding party and you'll be able to pull off these exquisite details without a hitch!


1. Gold Candlestick Centre Pieces

Brittany Makes had a vision of elegant, handmade flower centrepieces for her wedding and found the answer among old table legs.
With some gold spray paint they looked less like Grandma's furniture and more like sophisticated candlesticks, without the price tag.

Pair these with a beautiful flower arrangement and one of our handmade wreathes to surround the bottom and you have a stunning, classy wedding decoration.

2. Bohemian Found Objects

Make each dining table unique with an eclectic collection of assorted nick-nacks from charity shops, car boot sales and end of season sales.
For a rustic, bohemian vibe, paint or spray the vases to your wedding colour scheme and trim with lace or tie bows with straw. For a little extra flare, be sure to Add pampas grass or feathers accompanied by our selection of dried flowers to vases!


3. Makeup Room Mirror

With some strong adhesive, our dried flower bunches and a charity shop mirror you have a great way to encourage your bridesmaids to take selfies as a reminder of your special wedding morning.
Why not move it into the reception afterwards to get maximum joy out of this effective prop?
