Hey guys and dolls! Welcome to the first of many projects you'll see that involve me teaming up with our friends at Safari Ltd. to make my wedding happen. I still have a lot of work to do and dragons to add to projects. I decided to start with one of the bigger projects and that is a centerpiece.
Now here's the deal. This is just a mockup using the supplies I had and an idea. As you will see in the video at the bottom of this page I am still working out details. I love the simplicity of this centerpiece idea and that the dragon is the focal point. My issue is that I feel like it needs SOMETHING. I am thinking about adding glitter or paint to the glass container I have.
I should explain that I have several glass containers from a thrift store to use as part of the centerpieces. My mom got them. They are various shapes and sizes because I love the shabby chic style of things and it makes it way more personal for me. The problem is that the same reason I love the different shapes and containers may also be the reason my wedding lacks continuity. So now I wonder if I should paint them wedding color or in glitter to make something more unified. I'll let you know what I come up with.
As for the Dragons, these little guys are PERFECT! They add the right touch to my wedding and make a great focal point (I said that already). They are a great size. Visible enough from the center of a table but not so big as to take over the look. They are all unique too so no two centerpieces will look alike. I love that!
I still have several more of these to come up with and ideas of how everything should look. By the time we are done we will have 7 centerpieces (at minimum), a cake topper, boutonnieres, sash pins and gifts for the bridal party all with Safari Ltd Dragons. I'm excited! What do you think? What would you add or change?
