Often we are asked if we can ship centerpieces. Our website is filled with many varieties of centerpieces and lots of DIY (Do It Yourself) Centerpieces. YES they all can be shipped. Because of shipping there will be some assembly required. All of the centerpieces come with all components ready to assemble and have easy to follow instructions on how to put them together.
Styrofoam bases are painted and ribboned in the color of your choice. Many ribbon colors are available to choose from and can coordinate with the colors of your theme.
Theme pieces are ready to attach to dowels or acrylic rods and can be painted if requested. The many available theme pieces can be cut outs, graphics or actual “real” theme pieces.
If a two level centerpiece requiring a tube connecting the top base to the bottom base is shipped, the shred is placed into the tube before it is shipped and ready for assembly when shipment is received. If a flexible plastic tube is needed as part of the centerpiece, a template is included to help in placement of the tube(s) on the Styrofoam base.
Poofs, which are metallic squares of paper on a pick, are ready to be placed into the centerpiece by opening them up before placing the poof into the appropriate place on the centerpiece as detailed in the instructions.
In additional to the items sent for the centerpiece requested, there will be some optional items needed to complete the centerpiece. Items such as a low temperature glue gun, a level or scissors might be requested. Items needed usually are readily available at home or can be purchased at your local craft store.
Most of all patience to complete your project and pride in your final accomplishment is a needed asset. It is wonderful thing to be able to tell all your friends that you did it yourself.
