Ever wonder what to do with the several generations of stained or oddly styled wedding gowns and veils tucked away in your family’s closets? Turn them into meaningful centerpieces with a pair of fabric shears and some extra ribbon or lace.
Cut the fabric into circular shapes that can grace the center of your guest tables. Add ribbons or lace as desired. Gently bunch or gather the fabric, and top with vases of fresh flowers or old kerosene lamps. Include a nicely calligraphed note at each table, explaining the origin of the fabric.
