This centerpiece was used at a bridal shower for my cousin's fiance. My aunt, Valerie McGruder, made these and did a wonderful job! These can be done in the wedding colors for a shower or, in this case, "Tiffany" blue because the bride-to-be loves that color. Make more than one and they can be placed on the tables as well as the food area.
