Creative Centerpiece Ideas
It may sound a little strange, but I do feel a little sorry for the flowers used to decorate church aisles and table centerpieces. It’s a little sad to raise flowers only to cut them up, use them as decorations for an evening, then throw them out. If/when I get married, I’m probably going to use very few flowers. But who says you need a gigantic centerpiece arrangement for your wedding reception to look good? Here are a couple of creative centerpiece ideas that put a new spin on simple, minimalist floral arrangements.
With clear vases and some food coloring, you can make a simple arrangement with few flowers look really elegant. You can either place several stems on a tall vase, or cut the stem from the base and submerge the flower in the colored water of a rectangular vase.
Another way to dress up a simple arrangement is to use different materials to hold them. Instead of getting a vase, use wine bottles, lanterns, old cookie tins – the possibilities are endless. You can easily get these items from garage sales, export overruns in Dapitan, or at Divisoria.
There’s no rule that says a wedding centerpiece has to be made out of flowers. Consider using alternative materials instead, like fruit, paper lace, or better yet, cupcakes or cookies designed to look like flowers.
