So this is what I made for my wedding centerpieces. We got married at the end of September and with my heart's desire being wedding pictures with foliage, we kept to a fall-like decor. I found this beautiful example via Martha Stewart's website (... it's no longer there but of course, picture is courtesy of Martha Stewart via myechochicwedding.com's website).
I'm wondering if I have a wheat-obsession. After making 25? or so centerpieces of these beauties (some of them twice because my "helpers" didn't do such a good job ... the "helpers" will remain nameless because I do still love them for the effort) a normal person probably wouldn't want to work with wheat again.
I just picked up a bundle of wheat the other day for my Thanksgiving table settings. I think it was on BHG's website that I saw the idea, but can't remember for sure ... 3 wheat stalks arranged sitting on top of a folded or rolled napkin with ribbon. It sounds simple, elegant and beautiful, right? Hopefully it'll turn out that way. I have to first find the napkins I'm using (and have enough of) and then do a sample of them. Maybe I'll even remember to post a picture!
