One of my favorite tips for couples is to pick focal points with POP..

And to make them work for you…. I LOVE when you can make a piece do double duty.

These beautiful pieces by Beautiful Blooms from Carol and Sean’s recent wedding  – were used to flank the altar for the ceremony and then moved to the reception to accent the stairs with the addition of some votive candles.


Another great ‘Double Duty” is for the bridal bouquet- Carol’s stunning phalaenopsis bouquet –


Was added to the leaf trimmed vase (far right) and flanked two smaller pieces and some Mercury glass votive candles to complete the sweetheart tables look.


There are lots of great ways to splurge, do double duty and still have great accent pieces.
