For table decor, I used various metal pieces (often categorized as “copper wire”) purchased from Goodwill that included coffee pots, tea pots, little sugar bowls and even wine goblets. My dad went to the garden center and got some small, wee potted plants that we placed inside these pieces to add some color to the table. We didn’t get any flowers for our wedding (except these wee potted plants) and I don’t regret it one bit! I took inspiration from my sister-in-law where you don’t even notice if there are no flowers!
My dad actually polished up one of the items I’d bought not realizing that I loved the aged, tarnished look that the copper wire throws up after many years of use! It wasn’t nearly as pretty when it was all shiny and new looking! Bless him for trying to help though.
