the hantaran theme

it's march already.
i must start to think about (and work on!) the hantaran arrangement.
at start, i've chose "white + pink" for the theme.
the idea was to make it white for the 'alas dulang' and 'bekas hantaran' + pink for flowers & other decorations.

these are designs of 'bekas hantaran' which i found lovely.

the picture is taken from here.

kak fathiyah's

found this wooden white tray at a mall nearby my house.
it comes in three sizes - S, M and L.
selling at rm39 for L size, rm29 for M size and rm19 for S size.

and the 'alas' would be something like this (or similar):

it can be rented.
but i prefer buying it.

if anybody knows where i can buy something like this?
i am thinking of checking at nilai 3 or maybe diosastana.
something like this means:
- it is embroidered.
- fully / half beaded (full is better.. but with the price of the half :P).
- transparent material (eg. net, organza, chiffon, etc.).
- white colored.

the lining inside is not a problem.
i can buy any satin material to make it as a lining.

but but but -
my engagement outfit will be in pink with a hint of gold.
so just now i'm thinking of just using my mom's Queen Anne trays for the 'bekas hantaran'.
and the transparent 'alas' (like in the picture above) with gold lining plus pink colored decorations.

which combination is nicer?
white + pink or gold + pink?

of course the white one is more cute and lovely and sweet and bla-bla.
but to make it uniform with the outfit.
do i have to go for the second idea?

when i think about it and try to think rationally, i think i will go for the second one.
1st: the color combination matches the whole theme.
2nd: save cost! i don't have to buy the 'bekas hantaran' as i'll be using my mom's.
3rd: although Queen Anne trays is not sweet, but they are more elegant and classy.
4th: i can always apply the first idea to my wedding hantaran later. so i won't be menyesal of whatsoever.

kan kan kan?
