What are some good wedding-type centerpiece ideas?

November 18th, 2010

I am looking for ideas for centerpieces or table dividers for a social function I am planning. I need roughly 50 of them and I need them to be inexpensive. They have to be tall/wide enough to provide the illusion of privacy. The color scheme for the event is open so far, but I would like to go with something classic – something elegant. I don’t want it to be too flashy or girly.

    What about a nice plant in a pretty pot, then guests could take them home as a souvenir.

    not classy or elegant but I used pastel M&Ms in a bowl and then put in an oil candle in the center

    Not sure what your budget is on this one but here are several ideas:

    1. Clear glass vases, cylindrical and tall, filled with clear glass rocks or marbles, water, with a lilly submerged in the water. Place on mirror and add votive candles in clear glass holders. Sprinkle mirrored surface with sparkles.
    2. Clear glass vases, similar to the above, with large banana leaves or palm fronds. Add a few colorful flowers, some hanging crystal beads.
    3. Fresh cut wildflowers in baskets
    4. Balloons

    For the last event I planned, I used clear vases that were kinda tall and wide…they were rectangular. I filled them with water and then added lime slices. I used simple arrangements with hydrangas. They were stunning. The vases can be as big or small as you like and the flowers can be as elaborate or as simple as your budget allows. Lillies, tulips, or gerber daisies would be beautiful as well.

    Good luck!

    how about some balloon arrangements- then you can make them as tall and as wide as you’d like. otherwise gladiolas are a very tall flower that you can make some large arrangements out of- just get some type of container to put them in, some wet foam that is soaked in water, then arrange the flowers in them- they have a very large range of colors available in them too http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&rlz=1T4ADBR_enUS203US203&resnum=0&q=gladiola%20centerpieces&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi

    How about flower pots (terracotta, ceramic or painted) with a big wire “arbor” (you know, coming up out of the pot in a big arch – you could even do it yourself, twisting coat hangers, with styrofoam in the pots, covered with moss)…and cover the “arbor” with artificial ivy…and tuck in a few artificial flowers that match the color scheme… with more ivy in the pot, and spilling out of it….. You could make them as tall as you wanted (even into heart shapes), and they would look like topiaries….. You could even intertwine a few narrow satin ribbons in there to make it more “wedding”…
