When I would tell people that I was doing a Navy, Lilac and White color scheme, they would look at me funny but I stuck to my guns! My vision unfolded with every centerpiece completed. Now honestly, DIY flowers will sure give you a run for your money and I have an even higher respect for florists, but seeing the finished product made all the work worth it! We battled against extreme heat but the flowers held their own for which I am extremely thankful! They gave the perfect country chic look I was going for and the early colors still make me smile with their vibrancy!
