I'm officially getting married to my best friend in October and, as you can imagine, I can't stop thinking/dreaming about the wedding decorations. Weddings are expensive and I'm kind of a control freak, so I'm planning on making a lot of the decorations myself.
When I ran across yarn wrapped pinecones on Family Chic, I knew I had a center piece contender!
Literally just pinecones wrapped in yarn, these suckers are cheap and easy - both important qualities for a wedding DIY.
I'm 99.9% sure my colors are going to be navy blue and white with pops of natural yellows and greens. I'm also thinking my centerpieces will feature a lot of knick knacks from my apartment since a) I love them and b) they're free.
So naturally, I've started experimenting!
I really love the mixed whites of the coral and yarn - both really organic looking, but a mix of soft and hard. The mixed metals feel collected and the navy blue gives a high contrast background.
I could also see adding a little lace or crochet in thar, but it might make things look a little busy...
Obviously, every center piece will be a little different if I take this route, but that feels really special to me. What do you think?
