Centerpiece of the Day:
Dahlias and Hanging Carnations


Photo: The Decisive Moment

Before you completely dismiss the idea of having carnations at your wedding, take a look at this edgy installation by Bold American Events. Red dahlias in bud vases line the table while carnations hang suspended in mid-air. I love how the individual carnations are delicately strung against the exposed brick backdrop—it would be the perfect centerpiece for a modern museum wedding like Kristen and Scott's.
