Easy Single Stem Centerpieces

Flowers are everyone’s favorite for centerpieces, but can cost a fortune. For the event designer on a budget, I suggest using a different item for the main part of the centerpiece, and then adding a few single-stem flowers to small vases to place around it.

Ideas: For the main part of the centerpiece, put a pillar candle in a lantern, float a candle in a glass cylinder, or put curly willow in a large vase. Then put a single stem of your favorite flower in three tiny vases around the table. Use larger blooms such as roses, hydrangea or gerbera daisies for a bigger impact.
