Head Table Centerpiece – David Tutera Bridal

So, those of you who planned your wedding more than two years ago, do you ever find yourself browsing Pinterest and thinking, “Where were you when I needed you?!”   
Seriously.  
There are so many cute, funny, gorgeous, amazing wedding ideas on there that I just wish I would have seen when I was planning my own special day.  But, alas, at least I get to live vicariously through my friends Sara and Kristen who are engaged and in the midst of their pinning and planning.  Today, I want to share with you a special project I made for Sara and her fiance Michael to use on their head table using supplies from David Tutera Bridal.
You see, I was fortunate enough to receive a box of ah-ma-zing supplies from the David Tutera bridal line, which you can find at Michaels and other crafty places.  It was all I could do not to squeal when I saw all the sparkles!!  Hair clips, table numbers and stands, adhesive rhinestones, miniature lights…eeeeek!  So. fun.

I contacted Sara and Kristen and invited them over to look at all the fun products and see which ones were the best fit for their themes and styles.  Sara stopped by first and fell in love with all the sparkles too.  At the reception, she plans to have her head table set up with a round table in the middle for the bride and groom, and rectangular tables coming off of each side for the rest of the bridal party.  She was in need of a pretty centerpiece for that round table, which is where I {and David Tutera} come in!
Materials:
from the David Tutera collection
- “Bling on a Roll”
- Faceted Diamond Charms
- Crown pins
other materials
- square glass vase
- eight large silk roses
- styrofoam ball
- hot glue 
- adhesive vinyl & cutting machine

STEP 1: Fill vase with diamond charms.

STEP 2: Measure vase and cut the appropriate amount of “bling on a roll.” Adhere bling to vase.
I used adhesive dots for that part so that it would be removable, but you can also use glue or double sided tape.

STEP 3: Create and adhere vinyl monogram.
My friend’s new last name will be Eckard, so I cut out an “E” from dark red vinyl.  Once it was cut, I placed transfer tape on top to help peel it off and adhere it to the vase.

 STEP 4: Create flower arrangement.
I used eight giant roses and a small styrofoam ball.  I cut the blooms from their stems and glued them into the styrofoam.  Then, I added the crown pins for a sparkly, formal effect.  I left a small part of the ball uncovered at the bottom so that it would sit in the vase.

 STEP 6: Place floral ball in vase.

This project was seriously easy to do.  No flower arranging skills necessary, just glue those suckers onto the ball until it’s covered!  My kind of project!  And after the wedding is over, Sara and Michael can use it as a centerpiece in their new home.  I’m actually a little sad to let it go…it looks quite pretty on my table {even though the “E” is completely irrelevant for our family}.  Maybe I’ll just have to convince hubby that we need a vow renewal…
