The cost of such of decorating lantern mainly depends on the number of fresh flowers you’ll need, multiplied by the cost of the lantern. This rustic cream color lantern has a Moroccan style.

It’s decorated with 2 different sorts of flowers: dark pink begonia, and purple verbena.


Choosing Textures and Colors

Foliage can be a good way to fill the spaces and make the arrangement look lush without spending a fortune on flowers.

I suggest choosing flowers that have vibrant colors and not more than 3 or 4. You can also choose flowers that catch the eye like hydrangeas.

They are pretty big, though. Just make sure to place them at the bottom of the lantern or in a way that doesn’t hide other visual aspects of the centerpiece.

The foliage I used is wine-like Lophospermum, silver artemisia and… Carrot leaves at the top of the lantern. Carrot foliage is visually interesting, isn’t it?

Who would have thought…!

Hope you enjoyed these ideas. The Internet offers plenty of savings opportunities when it comes to wedding related items like fashion and decor.

However, if you plan to buy wedding centerpieces online (or anything else for that matter) make sure you choose a trustworthy merchant.

I personally always read past buyer’s review and questions and answers before buying anything from them.

This information helps you grasp their level of satisfaction concerning, product quality and respect of the delivery schedule, warranties, etc.

If there are no reviews available for a specific item, note that a good merchant will also answer in a timely manner any potential customer’s inquiries.

So don’t be shy to ask questions directly to the vendor.
