In the middle

17May09

We have been going back and forth on centrepieces for months. We know that we want lots of candles everywhere, and few-to-no flowers, but other than that, we have had a really hard time making a decision. We’ve been to IKEA and played around with some ideas, but until this weekend, we just couldn’t get it quite right.

Then my mum had an idea, and tested it out while I was home for a visit this weekend.

Jellybeans actually have a role in the story of how Adam and I met, so it’s very “us” while adding a touch of whimsy. They’ll be on plain white table cloths, so the colour should really pop. We’re still debating whether we should use mixed jellybeans as my mum did here, or whether we should get a mix of purple, blue and white ones, to better fit our “colours.”

What do you think?

    My first instinct is to say go with the purple, blue and white jelly beans. Flowers usually play a pretty big role in making the “colours” stand out, so the jelly beans could work to “take their place”, no?

    But, I do like the multi coloured selection that you have in the pictures, so if there are other ways that the “colours” are really going to stand out, I say go wild! 🙂

    Either way, meaning for the two of you + wimsy = two thumbs up for the jelly beans!!

    What did you guys decide on? I like the purple/blue/white jelly beans – maybe you can even get custom colours through Jelly Belly or another jb maker?

    We did a test run with the purple, blue and white, and LOVED it! We’re sold!
