Centerpieces Candles It may be obvious, but the classic beauty of candles will never go out of style. Gather a collection of candles in various heights, along with a few glass hurricanes, and this could be all the décor that your tables need for an understated elegance. If you want to add a bit of color to the look, fill the bottoms of the hurricanes with dried lentils or colored popcorn before securing the candles inside. Or, you might opt to purchase a few bags of tea lights and a box of blank CD's. Center and secure a single tea light to each CD, and the décor is certain to reflect the beauty of your day for all to see. Scatter framed pictures of the two of you on each table for an added personal touch. Fruits and Veggies The USDA recommends that you have at least seven daily servings of fruits and vegetables, but does that suggestion hold true on your wedding day? Well, it may depend on how many tables you have. Fresh fruits and vegetables can make a gorgeous alternative to traditional arrangements. Brighten your tables with a large bowl of green apples, or create a pyramid of clementines on a cake platter, and scatter a few loose flowers among the pile. Or, for a fall wedding, you might opt for a selection of pumpkins, pomegranates, grapes, baby eggplants, and squash to adorn your tables in a cornucopia of colors. Fresh Herbs You'll save a mint with this idea. Pick up a collection of potted herbs from your local gardening store, tie a bit of ribbon around the pots, and voila!—you have a collection of centerpieces that doubles as favors for your guests. If you have a lot of extra “thyme” on your hands (and a green thumb), you might even consider potting and growing the herbs yourself. Oil and Vinegar Here's another all-in-one idea for your centerpieces and favors. Fill glass bottles of different shapes with an assortment of olive oils and vinegars. These also make the perfect fall wedding favors. Add a bit of accoutrement from the grocery store (fresh herbs, dried orange or lemon peel, chiles, etc.) to each one. Place the collection of bottles in the center of your table, and you may have found one place where oil and vinegar mix very well! Seashells and Sand Hold a beautiful seashell to your ear, and you may hear the ocean offering up the perfect décor for your wedding by the shore. First fill a collection of glass containers with some sand, and then begin your hunt for seashells and starfish. To make it extra special, place personalized seashells in the containers and invite guests to take them home as keepsakes. Top each container off with a sprig of beach grass, and you have a centerpiece that is certain to last long after the tide rolls in. Sticks and Stones There are no bones about it—nature is the perfect designer. Take a walk around your home (or your wedding site) in search of rocks and branches, and you just may find ingredients for the most zen of centerpieces. Scatter a few soy pillar candles among the natural décor, and you've also found the perfect compliment to your eco-friendly wedding. Books Make words the center of your wedding—literally. If you're the literary type (or even if you're not), stacked books make a centerpiece that is both thrifty and elegant. You could theme each table after a writer (adding a framed quote from the writer nearby), or you might choose to scatter books around the room that hold a special significance to you both as a couple. Tie each stack with a gorgeous satin ribbon. Your guests won't be able to turn a page on this lovely décor—unless the books become their favors at the end of the evening. Art Supplies They say that there's an artist in all of us, so why not test this theory on your guests? Fill your glass vases with crayons, markers, and colored pencils in a variety of colors (or choose only the colors that match your theme). Place white butcher paper over the linens on each of the tables and you've created the perfect way for your guests to draw out the evening. Their table décor could even become a unique memento for your wedding scrapbook. Games Here's a fun way for the evening to play out: Dig up that collection of old board games from your parents' basement and scatter them among the tables. In doing so, you create a retro-fun way to entertain your guests. Hungry, Hungry Hippos will double as a conversation piece, preventing any awkward silence among your guests before their own dinner is served. Candy What could be sweeter than this idea? Fill a collection of glass bowls, aluminum pails, or planting pots with jelly beans, lemon drops, Tootsie Rolls, Red Hots, or personalized M&M's, and stick a few personalized lollipops right in the middle. This decorating idea doubles as a favor—and is sure to satisfy a guest's sweet tooth long before he reaches the center of a Tootsie Pop.

Justy Originally Answered: Which one of these pieces of advice do you think is more useful?
The first one, definitely applies more to life. Also because I LIKE dwelling on dreams! By the way, why does it say "Harry" in the middle of the second one? Was that quote taken from Harry Potter?

Something that I saw at a wedding I attended last summer was sort of cool I think. The bride had chosen some interesting glasses (wine goblets, martini glasses and so forth) and grouped several in the center of the table with curled ribbons lying around them and colorful glass marbles/rocks filling the glasses. A simple white taper adds to the effect because it will produce interesting shadows and reflections. Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!

I'm thinking of doing something like small glass globes with some of those pretty glass rock things from Hobby Lobby, at the bottom and filling it with some water and put one of those floating candles in it. Just an idea if you are on a budget and don't wanna spend a whole lot on flowers. I don't know if I would go with balloons as it would make it look somewhat like a birthday, but I guess it would depend on what color balloons. Best Wishes and Congratulations! :)

depending on what kind of wedding you are having will determine your center pieces. My favorite center piece is for a outdoor, humble wedding in a garden or anywhere outside and the center pieces are mason jars filled with cotton plants or a light blue colored flower (or whatever your color scheme is) with small bowls with floating candles and the number table card is a mini chalk board with the number written on it..

Cassidy Originally Answered: Are these pieces any good in your opinion?
You, my young friend, have obviously learned well from the classical era composers. Unfortunately, I can't say much as Youtube kept timing out on your vids. Which, to me, was a drag since I wanted to hear how you dealt with form in music. AND, I hate not being able to hear a work to conclusion. However, I do have a couple of comments. Your waltz (admittedly I couldn't see it to the end) seemed more of a lullaby to me than a waltz. Waltzes were dances (and yes you kept to the 3/4 time) at a tad bit faster pace than yours. Think about renaming it. Yes, waltzes are usually in 3/4 tempo, but just because a work is 3/4, it doesn't mean that it's a waltz. I only suggest this as it's clearly inspired by the classical/late baroque era style. For a good example of a Waltz, check out darn near anything written by Johann Strauss. He's considered the king of the Waltzes. Voices of Spring comes to mind here as a great example. What little I was able to hear of the Serenade seemed to be a theme and variations style (again I couldn't see the whole thing) I'm also glad to see your school is supporting a young composer as yourself. It's rare in these days of budget cuts to see a harp in the school's arsenal IMHO! You're off to a great start as a composer. I would urge you to expand your repertoire by experimenting with more recent styles of music. It's natural to start where you are. Expand, expand, expand. Experiment with the romantic next - then move on to 20th century styles. Here's what I'd suggest - ask your parents to get in touch with the music department of your local college. Find the composition prof within the music department. Ask them if they have any grad students who'd be willing to give lessons (undergrads are fine as well - just make sure he suggests someone rather than finding one on your own). I'd tell you to go with the prof but it most likely will cost serious cash. The grad student will be fine with a $20 an hour fee - trust me - I did it. They'll come up with ideas, expose you to new material, and give you exercises to help improve your skill. There's also a ton of books by published composers on techniques of composition/orchestration. Hit Amazon and you'll find a bunch. Honestly, I'd urge you to keep on keeping on. Good luck!
