Tablescapes and Lanterns

As I've mentioned in previous posts, we decided to do yarn bottles for our centerpieces, and use paper lanterns to hang above the tables. With less than 3 months to go, it was finally time to bring it all together and make sure that my vision was correct.

I took a white tablecloth and covered the table, hung the paper lanterns from our regular dining room light, and set up the yarn covered vases. Si recently got me flowers, and they were on their way out, so I dismantled the arrangement, and used the roses to see what they would look like. (They are a dark pink, not the very light pink we plan to use, but they look excellent nonetheless. The last step was lighting the candles. I'm SO glad we've decided to do the centerpieces with the yarn bottles. It's just right for the feel we're going for.

Overall, we are so thrilled with the way the tables have come along. It's going to be a great carry through of our theme but without being too overwhelming. Have you been working on any DIY tablescapes yourself?
