DIY centerpieces... sort of ...

So one thing about me that you will soon learn is that I heart trees... not actual trees! Mostly because I am incapable of taking care of plants of any variety, in fact I have a theory that they commit suicide the minute they realize that they are in my care.... but I digress!

I like trees as images and decorations and also for their symbolic meanings. So when I saw a Tree of Life picture frame this morning at Duane Reade I knew it was meant to be... posted on this blog.

So, its not technically DIY, since you would have to buy it, but its sort of a semi-DIY since you still have to add 10% of your homemade photos. Plus its still cheaper than hiring a florist to make centerpieces.

I think the frames would make a very cute centerpieces, or a nice way to decorate the place card table, or just a nice frame to have at your home. You can put in pics of you and the hubs from various times in your lives and your guests can enjoy perusing them during the reception. I would put pics from different age groups on different tables which (hopefully) would encourage guests to go over to each other's tables to check out all of the different pictures. The best part is that they are only $14.49. They are also available in bronze but they are more pricey. Go pick them up at your local Duane Reade or order them online at Amazon (here for silver and here for bronze).

I do like the idea of having these at your place card tables! I am sort of put off by the giant picture of the bride and groom. Or worse, just the bride! So I think this is a nice way of personalizing your day with small charming photos.

I love the tree accents for weddings as well. This would also look super cute at the guest book table like mini family trees!
