{Simple Centerpieces}

Being a DIY bride is no easy feat.  By the time “go-time” rolls around, you’ve crafted your little heart out.  You just cannot spray paint, glue gun, scallop, or cut another thing.

But there are still tables to decorate.   What can you do??

First of all, start with no-fail staples that have been used since the beginning of time for table decor: flowers, vases, and candles.  Here are a few ideas for centerpieces that require little to no advance prep, are cost effective, and still look amazing.
