5 Alternative Centerpieces for your Next Event

When you think centerpieces, you think florals, over the top trees, maybe 5-6 vases on a table or an entire runner of roses…ok, maybe that’s just what I think about! From weddings to birthdays or showers, here are 5 of our favorite centerpieces that have minimal florals, but maximum value! Our Pintrest board has some more ideas for you to see.

For a birthday party or even a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, these colorful lollipop centerpieces will catch a lot of attention (and hungry eyes). A simple styrofoam ball and some glue can add multi layers and everyone will have fun taking a lollipop as the night goes on. Adding blow pops to these dum dums, can add some dimension to the tables.

A bridal shower can benefit from the zen and tranquil effects of fresh lavender. Tie these around a votive and light the candle for a beautifully scented party. Sage can also work wonderfully or my personal fav is putting lose jasmine buds floating in water bowls – heavenly!!!!

Wine and beer lovers rejoice!! Drink up, empty those bottles and get to spray painting! The key is to have multi-shaped bottles so get creative when you go shopping at the liquor store. Remember, safety first: cover your mouth when spray painting, allow a day for it to dry, transport them safely and fill with your fav florals. This can be used at a bridal shower, wine themed birthday or even a cocktail party. Add some color to votive candles, to complete the look.

Birdcages have been increasingly popular to collect gift envelopes, but this touch of florals creates a romantic touch to any event. Add some rose petals and multi-tiered votive candles on the base, but watch out for those hanging vines!

Rustic themes are all the rage, especially in the fall. With creative uses of mason jars and natural tree trunks, you can bring the outdoors to any table. Moss, eucalyptus, and twine easily lend themselves to a natural theme – just take it easy with the weight of the trunks!
