Why not put that quirky collection to good use? Whether you collected marbles as a child or accumulate corks as an adult, either can be used as a vase filler for a floral centerpiece. Find a large, clear hurricane or vase, fill two-thirds full with corks,then arrange your favorite seasonal flowers for a simple and unique centerpiece.
Create a fragrant and colorful centerpiece with fresh lime slices and blooming perennials. The trick to keeping the lime slices upright is to use two vases of varying sizes, fitting one inside of the other and filling in the space with 1/4-inch-thick lime slices. The luscious fruit and floral scents will last for two-to-three days.
Fresh flowers can be a real budget buster, so if you're looking for ideas to cut back in a big way, consider putting together non-floral centerpieces. Depending on your wedding theme or style you could consider anything from vintage books and candles, spray-painted branches, greenery, potted plants, fruit or picture frames.
To create a stylish centerpiece, fill a compote with water and whole limes, and tuck flowers – stripped of most stems – in amongst the limes. Pinecones, ornaments or fresh, colorful vegetables like artichokes and radishes also serve as sturdy anchors for blooms. In addition to candle-filled votives set casually on the table, succulents placed in water-filled votive cups make charming tabletop decorations.
While not a fussy affair, this is a bridal shower — think white, white, white and a touch of "something blue" when it comes to your decorations. If you don't own white plates and linens, consider renting some for the event; rentals are surprisingly affordable. On the table, opt for stems of full-blossomed flowers like hydrangea, roses or peonies tucked into individual vases for a centerpiece that doubles as favors for the guests. Delicate ribbon details give the table its finishing feminine touches.
Sand meets ultra-gorgeous flower for a DIY centerpiece idea that's truly just as easy as it is beautiful. Cluster a few flower-and-sand creations together; add in tea light candles and you'll have a dreamy summer centerpiece worthy of a dreamy beach wedding.
