“THE PERFECT ‘PEAR’ REHEARSAL DINNER” PART III
We finally get to the “Black” element of this party. I had envisioned super glossy, black vases with pure white blooms in them. I thought the contrast will be super modern, and since we are try to keep everything simple, modern is the best way to go.
We purchased cheap vases and candle holders from the Dollar Store.
We then spray-painted them with a glossy black paint.
Sadly, they didn’t turn out as glossy as I would have wanted them to be, but they still work out great in the end.
We then purchased bunches of white/ivory blooms from a local flower wholesaler. We got China Mums, Gerbera Daisies, Lisianthus, Tulips, Hypericum (which I think look like mini-pears…so cute) and some other really pretty flowers that I don’t know the name of . I really must educate myself more on flowers…
The key to make this minimalistic approach work is to stick to just black and white/cream palette. This palette just make everything looks so clean and elegant. To display them, we bought these laser cut scrapbook papers. We used them as the “mat” to display the flowers on and to give the table another visual layer.
We originally wanted to make table runners, but our budget and time-constraint did not allow for that so we went with the mat idea instead. I actually did the same trick before at my bridal shower, which worked really well so we did the same here.
Cheers to the Perfect “Pear”~
