Need opinions on my favors and centerpieces...

Hi ladies, If you have a minute, would you all check out my favors and centerpices (PIB under DIY). What do you think of them? With the centerpieces, you will have to imagine them potted with flowers because right now they are empty. Also, I know that flower bulbs are ugly, but I really wanted to have practical favors, and knowing my guests, they will love something related to gardening (my whole family and I love to garden).Honest opinions are greatly appreciated, TIA!

    Jessi, LOVE the centerpieces with the eclectic display of the different vases...very cute! They will look amazing with the potted flowers :) I can't wait to see pictures of your wedding! The favor boxes are a great way to package the bulbs. Everything looks really nice (cute little instruction sheet w/ the artwork) :) If you are looking for any ideas about how to dress up the boxes a little more...how about a strip of ribbon w/ your monogram sticker on top of it to keep in it place? Either way, they look great (I like how they are very clean/simple with just your sticker too) & I love the idea of giving the bulbs since many of your guests are into gardening!
    no identifiable siggy pictures anymore, thanks a lot stupid nest!

    Jessi - Very cute ideas.  Have you considered just using one "vase" for each centerpiece...perhaps along with a few of the clear jars and some votives?  All of the vases/pots you've chosen are so beautiful and interesting, they could possibly stand on their own.  Just a though.  Either way, I think it is a fantastic idea.Cute favors - I think the boxes with your monogram sticker are a great way to disguise the "ugliness" of the bulb itself.  Great job!

    Thanks for the replies! Chel: I thought about using some ribbon on them, but I decided against it just to keep waste and cost down. I am trying to keep everything as environmentally friendly as possible, even though they would look really nice with the ribbon. Thanks for the advice :)Fran: I will try that out and see how it looks, I think I like the more cluttered/eclectic look though. My inspiration was the Anthropologie home collection catalog! Thanks for your opinion, ps. I did my first batch of marble magnets this weekend, I will email you pics asap! do you have any pics of yours?

    You're right, the bubs are ugly...but the boxes are super cute! :-) Flower bulbs are a really good idea and ven moreso since you come from a family of gardeners. I like the vases shown, with the exception of the copper ones. They seem a little harsh compared to the soft colors of the blue and white ones. However, I do like the overall look of the tablescpae and can picture everything coming together once you have your flowers.
