I described before how we’re hoping to use old pewter containers (as yet unfound) in the entry-way of our wedding reception room. I’m crazy about the unshiny lustre of pewter. It’s elegant, but not flashy, old-fashioned, but not ugly, and mutes the colors of flowers in a most romantic way.
Notice that a monochromatic bundle of flowers like this can be picked up in a grocery store for just a little– but they look amazing in this gorgeous container.
I never thought of using fir boughs on a table! How lovely and perfect for a winter wedding! I don’t think pine boughs are expensive that time of year, and I know a lot of youth and student groups sell them for fundraisers. And, the wedding is _after_ Christmas, so perhaps we could pick up several swaths for a good price. Fir, pewter, candlelight… remaining inspired!
