DIY Centerpiece Ideas

So I have been playing around with DIY centerpieces for a while and I think I know what I'm going to do...here's what I've come up with so far. World Market sells these lanterns that are nice and big- you can fit three candles inside and they are so cute! Here's what I was thinking of:

I was thinking of placing a few grey river rocks around the lantern with either tulips in a vase like above or a few more candles. I grabbed the rocks from a place down the road to try out the idea of placing rocks around the lantern, here's how it turned out:
I like it- of course I'd replace those rocks with smooth ones like these:
I think it will turn out well. :)

Venue Search Continues: Morgan Creek Golf Club

I went to the Morgan Creek Golf Club today. And I think I may have found the venue! I took some pictures so you guys can see and so I can show my FH later tonight. But I am so excited. I loved Trinity, the sales rep, and the venue. Here's some pictures:
This is the ceremony site. Notice the pond in the background...it has duckies. :)
This is the inside of the reception area. Those gorgeous drapes and chandeliers are there permanently so you save on the decorations. You get to chose from a bunch of colors for the linens with no extra charge and the carpet design isn't that bad either.
A close up of the chandelier. I love it!

So now all I have left to do to finalize this venue, is get my FH there to see it. He's been busy with work and biking up in Tahoe so hopefully later this week I can lure him away. :) Oh and next Tuesday we get to go and try some of the food. Yum!
