stumbled upon this beautiful blog flores del sol...ugh so lovely! and very inspiration worthy. Check out her creations using dried moss and plants. It is such a different look. Apparently she has an etsy shop but it is on hiatus for while. I think these would make good alternatives to centerpieces and they will definitely be total eye catchers!!
She has other lovely inspirations using succulents and other materials like feathers, reeds, etc. My Favs are the yellow pom pom reeds.
