Here are 10 unbelievably creative centerpiece ideas, from Colin Cowie Weddings:
Centerpieces set the tone for an entire event, so why not “wow” your guests with a unique arrangement? An eye-catching centerpiece can make your event totally Instagram worthy. Better yet, a memorable centerpiece doesn’t have to break the bank! From simple and understated to dramatic and over-the-top, we’re sharing 10 of the most creative and head-turning centerpieces to incorporate into your wedding.
1. Ethereal Fairy Lights
Delicate fairy lights placed inside of bell jars or terrariums bring a touch of whimsy to any table setting. Your event will feel absolutely magical with the addition of these twinkling lights.
2. Mono-Floral Arrangements
For a modern feel, try placing single flowers in a variety of vases. Alternate the size or color of the flowers and vases for an eclectic mix and match look.
3. Mini Hot Air Balloons
We can’t get enough of these quirky miniature hot air balloons. Whether sitting in baskets or hanging above, this centerpiece would be a playful addition to any tabletop.
4. Fabulous Floating Candles
Floating candles are elegant, set the mood, and are an affordable way to make a big impact with your wedding décor. An added bonus: everyone looks better in the soft glow of candlelight.
5. Sensational Succulents
As an alternative to blooming flowers, try using succulents for a bit of subtle greenery on your table. Succulents can work as a neutral in your color palette, while still bringing an organic aspect to your décor.
6. Glam Feathers
To heighten the drama, tall arrangements of feathers lend an air of old Hollywood glamour. Imagine women in elbow length gloves, sipping champagne beneath towering vases of white ostrich feathers – how chic!
7. Delicious Edible Displays
What’s better than a centerpiece that serves two purposes? Make an edible centerpiece of charcuterie, plates of fruit, or containers of cookies – it will feed and impress your guests!
8. Vintage Lanterns
Filled with candles, flowers, or a combination of the two, lanterns can be used to create a charming centerpiece. We love the old-world vibe they bring to a table.
9. Prettily Potted Herbs
Herbs in small flowerpots are one of the simplest and sweetest centerpieces, with the added bonus of their fresh aroma. Try to select herbs that will compliment the menu, such as rosemary if you’re serving roasted chicken or basil if you’re serving pasta.
10. Shining Reflective Surfaces
A mirrored runner or vase can offer just the right amount of sparkle to your reception table. Mirrors add dimension and enhance the arrangements of flowers and candles placed above.
