Getting ahead

While we don't even have a place or a date for our wedding I cant help but start to plan the pretty things, you know the flowers and the decor and the colors- my mind is in overdrive just thinking of all the possibilities for our day!

I'm still stuck on flowers like i was a few posts ago and I'm thinking of centerpiece ideas now.  I'd like something different from the usual one arrangement.  I could always go with one funky arrangement, but for now I am gathering ideas for centerpieces using multiple arrangements.  Of course Martha has some great ideas
 

I love the last one- its so colorful and bright.  Also the tea tins are really fun- being that the fiances family is from Sri Lanka I wonder if I could get a bunch of Ceylon Tea tins?   Hmmm, I might be on to something here.  

Anyone know where I can get like 100 Ceylon Tea Tins that are bright like these??

Lol, I have almost ALL of those pics in my inspiration folder for the wedding! We're going to go for vintage milk glass vases with the flowers grouped like this: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_DBC1i9nqhKc/S836aR5U9XI/AAAAAAAAHY0/VLinxRs7dOg/s400/4-20-2010+12-11-56+PM.jpg

LEB-
Just double check your spelling - above, I read it and laughed really hard, only because I know you are so excited and typing really fast!
I love the tea tins, and I wonder if you could find something at an Indian Tea shop or spot near you.
I also love all white containers---you could spray the inside of glass containers....not to add work, but to add to the fun.

Great inspiration and I really love the last two images...esp if the last one allows you to bring something personal in for your Fiance and his family. Love it.

When all else fails... try eBay!

Such pretty arrangements! We went with three (in varying heights) per table, and although the color scheme was consistent, each table was not. Some of my friends table-hopped just to see the different kinds of flowers used!

Those tea tins are fab - maybe Ebay??
