Centerpiece ideas , non-floral, for party
My daughter is having a large catered party for her 16th birthday. It will be held at a local banquet hall. She has been planning this for years, and, being a teenager and almost 16, is very picky about the theme and style. Formal dress, etc. Guests will be classmates, not adults.
Where could we find centerpiece ideas and how to make them? Or who could make them? I have no clue apart from flowers, which she does not want, or balloons, same thing. She has a tentative theme of "Romantic Europe" with each table representing a European city. For some cities (Paris, Rome) it's easy to pick a building that symbolizes it, but for others?? Tentative count, 12 tables.
This is also costing much more than we planned so far, so ideas I can make myself are welcome.
