It seems like it's wedding season around here!
So many of my friends have grown children getting married this summer and there are lots of engagement parties, bridal showers and rehearsal dinners to attend.
Yesterday, I had the honor to co-host a bridal shower for my friend's lovely daughter-in-law to be, and my contribution was the centerpieces.
I initially experimented with roses and succulents, but the bride's colors are purple and green...
...so I ended up putting purple Campanula plants in the center of the succulent wreaths that I've kept alive since December from Ashley's wedding.
Putting them on log slices gave them more presence.
Meanwhile, my friend and mother of the groom made the party favors that doubled as place settings, thanks to the little chalkboards on a stick that we found at Michaels.
I mean, how cute are these?
They coordinated with my centerpieces beautifully.
The shower was a huge success and it turned out to be a perfect day for everyone.
Oh, and everyone was happy to take home a succulent with their name on it!
How beautiful! My friend's daughter will be getting married soon so I am very excited to be able to share these ideas with her...the log slices, how great was that that you kept the succulent wreaths! And the pots of succulents, who wouldn't want a succulent!!!
Thanks as always for sharing!
Good morning D!! I ♥♥♥ it!! The table looks amazing with your lovely centerpieces. I always love the combination of purple with shades of green. I am sure the bride felt very special on her day!!! happy Monday,

The bride to be was lucky indeed that you were in charge of the centerpieces. Beautiful arrangements Delores. And I just know how special everyone felt to take home their own lovely little succulent.
I love this idea Delores!!
Once again, you have proved how clever you are! These arrangements are beautiful, and the favors just perfect.
Ohhh this is so delicious!!! I absolutely love the idea of pairing succulents with logging rounds. What a warm and sincere gesture utilizing something from Ashley's wedding in these creative, unique and beautiful centerpieces + place settings/party favors! Congratulations to Yasmin & GREAT job De-Lo!!
I'm screaming "GORGEOUS"! So fresh. Jo @ Let's Face the Music
Great arrangements. Beautiful party. So clever to revamp pieces you already had in a different way.
Great job Delores! I agree that the log slices complete the look. Very cool when rustic pieces like those are contrasted with the white table linens. By the way, where did you get your logs slices?
