Tips For Centerpieces For Any Occasion


There are a few things to consider when choosing a centerpiece for your event. First and foremost is your budget. Also, know how many tables you will have as well as the size and headcount of each. Avoid centerpieces that take up too much space. If you're guests can't see one another, they'll have a hard time enjoying conversation.

Consider lighting. If the event is at a darker venue, you might include tea lights or votive candles (keeping fire codes in mind as many places will no longer allow open flame candles-so check first!). Conversely, if you have a venue with a lot of open, natural light, choose vibrant centerpieces with more details.

The season and locale are also important. If your event is outside, make sure the centerpieces can withstand the elements. Don't overlook your linens and tableware. Linens aren't just part of the background. They complete the picture.

With these considerations in mind, here are some fun centerpiece ideas that can be tailored to any event!

  1. LED summer holiday lights are a great way to add elegance to almost any centerpiece! You can put submersibles in a water-filled apothecary jar or terrarium with other flowers, gems or greenery. These can be made easily and on a budget for any themed event.
  2. Floating candles are a popular and inexpensive way to add class to your event. Combine them with simple yet bold flowers, like orchids or calla lilies, and you'll have an amazing centerpiece.
  3. Glamorous ostrich feathers in tall vases make any event opulent. Add some pearls and rose gold accents and you've got a wonderfully vintage feel for your event.

Keep things fresh with succulents. These are a great way to create beautiful centerpieces for a chic and rustic event. These can also double as favors. They're incredibly easy to take care of, there is a wide variety to choose from and they bring in those lush greens during any time of the year. Potted herbs are another simple centerpiece idea that gives the locations a fresh scent and can double as a favor. Adding edible accents to your centerpiece displays is a great idea. Pineapples are a sign of welcome, figs femininity and an abundance of fruit signifies prosperity.

You can tweak all of these ideas to make them your own. A certain color ribbon here, a few rhinestones there, for example, can easily tailor any centerpiece to your needs.

Hot Summer Fun!
