Unconventional Centerpieces

Looking for something a little out of the ordinary to flank your table design? Vases and flowers are always beautiful, but try one of these unconventional centerpieces to spice up your classic tablescape!

Even if you aren’t having a wine-themed wedding, wine bottles are a great option for your table’s main attraction. Not only are they interesting conversation pieces, but they can also act as a vase, table marker, or both! The best part about using wine bottles is you wouldn’t need to spend any money. As soon as your honey gets down on one knee, start saving! It’s a great excuse to have your girlfriends over for cocktail hour.

Do you and your special someone share a love of reading? Try using a stack of your favorite books at the center of your table. You can even customize the books especially for your event. Having a baby shower? Children’s books are sweet and whimsical. What about a Halloween Bash? Murder mysteries can add the extra thrill factor. The options are endless! Even if you aren’t a huge fan of literature; old, worn books can add a vintage touch to any reception. I especially love the picture from erin mcfarland photography.

A new trend in events is vases wrapped in fabric. This is a great idea because you could save money on the vases, but make them more exciting with a fabric that parallels your event design. Rent a variety of vases for little money, then choose fabrics of the same color palette to unite your look. Theknot.com and The Bride’s Cafe had some great ideas for this!

All of these ideas are budget friendly, but don’t skimp on style!
