Metal and floral foam

Standard

They go together like

Ahhh, I love a little Grease in the day! Metal and floral foam aren’t really like mac and cheese but they solved some logistical quandaries so they go together for us…back to the adventure at hand…

I haven’t talked about our favors yet, no we aren’t giving people a piece of metal and floral foam… let me spill the beans, we are having a candy bar, gasp we are sooo trendy, ha!  Our venue gives us customized pint glasses for every guest.  We talked about giving people the pint glass on it’s own, but after thinking about it a bit we decided they would be the perfect receptacle to hold an edible treat like CANDY!  And that is how we ended up with a candy bar/buffet…

To hold all of the candy we decided to collect antique (and a couple newer) tins, we have collected around 25 tins.  Some of these tins are perfectly sized, and some are a smidge on the deep side so we will be raising the bottom of them up just a little with the floral foam.  The floral foam also helps to display things like tootsie pops and lollipops.  We found a few really fantastic tins like the 80 year old marshmallow tin, the old butter mint tin, and two that my grandma gave us one from Germany and a Boston Tea Party tin.  We are pretty excited about our finds.  After the wedding some of them may stay with us indefinitely and some might find a new home…

Here is a sneak peek at our collection:
