This idea for a wedding centerpiece, is natural simple and beautiful, the best part is it’s so simple that you can do it yourself or with the help of some friends. It combines a simple glass vase that is cylindrical with natural tone rocks and flowers. The rocks are placed at the bottom with a small amount of water. You can by rocks like this at your local hobby or craft store in the flower section, they are usually with the foam shapes. Just place a small handful in the bottom of the vase, shake to distribute evenly and cover with a small amount of water. Then day of event place fresh flowers that have been trimmed at the base of the flower in the vase. You want to use blooms that are large enough in proportion to the vase to stick without sinking to the bottom. You can also group a few flowers together to accomplish this when placing them. I think this effect could also be pulled off with silk flowers that match your floral plans for the wedding. Many fake flowers these days appear to be very realistic. The benefit to using silk flowers is that you can prepare them far in advance. In place of water there are also gels at the craft store that are used to appear like water. Again these are found in the flower section.
This centerpiece idea brings a lot of warmth to the wedding table. With silk fall leaves and several candles in different sized containers. Again this is something that can be done by yourself, or by enlisting friends. The bowls can be found at a craft store, floral supply store or online. The candles are just simple hurricanes and votives, I would recommend unscented candles as that many scented ones could become overwhelming. The leaves can also be found at a craft store or a floral supply. The leaves are randomly scattered on the table, the important thing to remember is that random means not making them look too organized or spaced out. And then the bowls with candles are spaced around them.
This stunning wedding centerpiece uses a sheet of mirror, with a cylinder vase in the center that has glass beads in the bottom and a rose submerged with a floating candle on top. Petals and beads scattered accent the mirror. Two smaller candles bring more warmth. This is rather easy to do at home as well, finding materials from craft stores or floral supply. Again silk flowers could be used in place of real.
This wedding idea is so stunning and really makes the whole table the centerpiece rather than just the middle. The large structure on top is the highlight, but with the flowers gathered around, the table clothes, and the votives scattered around, even the napkins are tied in to the theme. The important part of this centerpiece is that that it reminds you that there are no limits of how to bring a table together. Something of this detail takes a lot of time to set up and is best left to the professionals for sake of your sanity on your wedding day.
This centerpiece takes the whole theme idea to mind, with the tablecloths matching, but keeps the accents simple. If the last idea made you sigh, but the cost and time left things to be desired, this is a way to make it happen. The centerpiece is very simple, yet it is accented by the tablecloth. It also combines the ideas found in the earlier ideas.
