Creating Appealing, Affordable Centerpieces for Any Occassion
1. Wishing Well
This one is an interactive and heartfelt way to celebrate someone—Mom, a recent graduate, an expectant parent. Pass around strips of paper about six inches long and ask guests to write a message or a wish for the honoree. Twist the papers around a pen to curl them, then toss them into a large bowl or, antique bird cage, or even a wishing well! Have the guest of honor read the messages aloud during dessert.
2. Charming Container
Big blossoms, such as hydrangeas, roses, and peonies, look gorgeous displayed in an unused serving piece, like a soup tureen or tea pot! This centerpiece idea is great for bridal showers, tea parties and women’s retirement parties.
3. Sweet Stash
A bouquet of colorful pinwheel lollipops and other candies stands steadily and cheerfully in a bucket or glass container packed with dry sand, jelly beans, m&ms, the list is endless! Fill in any blank spaces with colorful party accessories that can be found at any party supply store.
4. Box of Flowers
A field of gerbera daisies and wheatgrass, roses and babies breath “grow” charmingly in wooden boxes. This centerpiece idea goes great a rustic table runner for longer tables. Line the table with a table runner that matches your events theme. Choose the flower based on the event’s theme as well. This centerpiece is great for bridal showers, mothers day brunches and baby showers.
5. Branching Out
Branches, whether artificial or the real deal, look striking in an arrangement. In a well-ventilated outdoor space, spray them with white, gold or silver paint, let dry, then display in glass bottles or vases. To add a little extra, consider adding twinkle lights, candles and other little hanging accessories!
