I am having a fall wedding and am trying to figure out how to use the leaves, acorns, lanterns wheat and maybe a cardinal or two into the scheme of things. Please.. any suggestions? decorations or centerpieces? TIA

Here’s what I’m doing for my centerpieces…it’s kind of in your realm…
This pic is just a prototype, but I’m estimating my costs to be as follows, some items I’ve purchased, some I have not
30 8” high vases at Ikea $1.50 each (total $45)
Sticks and twigs 2ft long free
120 feet of ribbon $7.00- 40% off sale at Micheals, plus Black Friday coupon of 50% off even clearance items
30 Garland pieces at $3.00 each at Micheals, again the Black Friday coupon.
Gold spray paint for the inside of the class and the sticks. $3 a can, need about 10 cans… (I’m sure I can get this cheaper!)
Dark Wood as the Base: $20 sheet of cheap wood that Lowes cut to my measurements for free!
One can of dark wood stain:less than 7 bucks.
Rocks free (I live near the Delaware River, where they are ALL OVER the riverbed), however – I believe you can get a huge bag of them in the landscaping department at Lowes/Home Depot for under 10 bucks, you’ll just need to rinse them off.
Total Price for 30 centerpieces $199.00, That’s less than $7 bucks each!
