Pom Pom Decorations and Cute Little Flowers

I have to decorate the church pews and the altar. I really did not know what to do at first. I didn't want to spend a fortune on flowers for every pew, and then something for the altar, and then throw it all away.

One evening  I was looking around everywhere on wedding sites that might have cute decoration ideas. I came upon this:

If I use ivory and green it could work. No?

And for the altar what about a bunch of baby's breath? I could buy some the day before and just stick them into clear vases.

Simple, but elegant. And hassle free. Exactly what I need!

Did you go through the DIY route for the church decorations?

Our venue includes an outdoor teatro where our ceremony will take place on a large altar (stage looking thing) downstairs from the reception. It is surrounded by beautiful spanish inspired architecture, lush overhanging green trees and potted flowers and fountains. So I really didn't need to do much other than decorate the aisles, which my florist is handling. That said, I love your idea for the baby's breaths. I am usually so not a fan of those but I think when you keep them simple and by their lonesome, they're quite stunning.

I too love the baby's breath! Especially that second picture! I think they will look elegant!

Born to be Mrs. Beaver: My church is right next to a large unfortunately we won't have the luxury of having trees everywhere. You are very lucky!

I might be biased because I'm using it as my centerpieces, but I LOVE BABY'S BREATH! It will look so pretty, you should go for it!
