Bamboo Centerpieces?

by DIY wedding planner on October 21, 2012

I was brainstorming some non-expensive DIY centerpieces… I am really ticked about paying for flowers that are going to die in a week so I thought why not do bamboo centerpieces they don’t die (if you take care of them) and double as great favors so I was thinking this…

Buying Bamboo stems and cutting them into 3 sets of 3 different heights. Then, buying three different height squared vases and fill them up with wedding color crystals) and doing the following…

Each table would have 3 square centerpieces of different heights.

The tallest vase would include crystals with 3 bamboo stems and I would add 3 stems of orchids to add color and definition.

The medium vase would include crystals and 3 Bamboo stems and I would add 5 roses tied together down the stems with a colored ribbon.

Then the smallest vase would be 3 bamboo stems and 3 lilies placed on the corner.

What do you guys think? I know it may be a little difficult to visualize but would also like you opinions. I think this is an affordable easy DIY project with lots of height and variation with little flowers as possible therefore it won’t be such a large flower expense.

FYI- My colors are pink and green (inspired by orchids I love orchids) and the ceremony is on a ranch style home outdoors with a ceremony outside by a fountain. And the actual reception under a large gazebo with a beautiful wood detailed roof.

My fiancé and I are also very simple laid back outgoing people.

The bamboo sounds so pretty and a great idea for people to take as thank you gifts!

Sounds like you’re off to a great start in your planning!
