“You are getting married! What an exciting time in your life. You will soon be joining with your new spouse in holy matrimony. This can be an exciting and stressful time for both you and your fiancé. There are so many things to plan and to think about. For many people, the wedding table centerpiece falls on the back burner in favor of things like dress shopping or searching for a honeymoon location. However, you should take a few minutes to think about your wedding table centerpieces and what you want to do for them. Here are some ideas for unique and fun wedding table centerpieces.
Homemade Wedding Table Centerpiece
A great way to have a unique, fun, and relatively inexpensive wedding table centerpiece is to do it yourself! You can easily, with some help from family and friends perhaps, make your own wedding reception centerpieces. There are a few ideas of what to do for the centerpieces. First, you could make the centerpiece the favor as well. Get three different sized clear glass vases for each table. Fill these vases with three different types of candies and put a small, fancy spoon in the vase with the candy. Either put a favor box or a favor bag at each place setting. Now the guests can make their own favor with whichever candy they choose!
If you want to go a little more homemade, you can really do baked goods for your wedding table centerpieces. You can put a batch of your favorite cookies in the center of the table, for example. Another great idea is to make a desert, like cake or pie, for each table. Place the cake or pie in the center of the table. Put a small dot or other distinguishing marker on the bottom of a placemat at each table. During the reception announce that whoever has the dot at each table gets to take home the wedding table centerpiece! Your guests will not forget the delicious desert they got to bring home with them!
A final idea for a homemade and unique wedding table centerpiece has to do with planted flowers. You can get some cheap potable flowers for just a few dollars each at the grocery store or at a local nursery. Plant them in either some cute pots or plain pots. If you use the cheap, plain pots, put the plant—pot and all—in a decorative gift bag that matches your theme and tie the bag around the plant with a ribbon. You can use this as a door prize much like the baked good wedding table centerpiece.”
