Trend Alert – Vintage Books As Centerpiece Boosters

A bit back I posted about floral “booster seats” to add some oomph to centerpieces (kind of the new round mirrors)

Well here’s a charming variation on that theme that I’ve started to see crop up around the blogosphere- vintage books as centerpiece stands.  I’d been seeing vintage books used in wedding decor for some time, but love it when the flower arrangements are actually placed on them and boosted in this way!

Here are some examples that I love

First, from trendsetting florist extraordinaire Carissa of JL Designs, from a hacienda inspired California wedding:

And here they are looking quintessentially East Coast, from a recent wedding by Holly Chapple:

And this is kind of cheating because here they are as bouquet glam shot props rather than really boosting centerpieces, but I love these two creations.  The one on the  left is from Dallas’ current darling, husband and wife owned floral boutique and art gallery Bows + Arrows, and on the right courtesy of my all-time favorite florist, Seattle’s Ink and Peat:
