Weddings are about celebrating one of the most important events in someone's life: their wedding. Everything has to be perfect at a wedding reception, starting with the warm welcome made by the staff at the restaurant where the couple celebrates their wedding, and ending with the last waltz danced by them.
But when we think of a wedding reception, the first thing that comes to our mind is not the welcome made by waiters or doormen, nor the last dance of the happy couple; when we think about events like this, the first (and in many cases the only) thing that we remember is represented by the centerpieces used at such event.
And a very lovely idea that can be considered by any happy couple that does not want to use a wedding guestbook, is to allow their guests to write their wishes of well for the marrying couple on strips of paper having about 10 inches long. These strips of paper should be placed in a bowl or why not, in a cowboy hat (in case of a country or Western wedding).
Another idea is to amaze wedding guests by placing on their tables some charming containers, featuring big blossoms, such as roses, hydrangeas and peonies. If you do not know what container to use for this kind of task, try a soup tureen, and you can be certain that your centerpieces will make it to most wedding photos taken by your guests.
The next idea involves using some glasses; place rectangular glasses on guests’ tables and fill them with water. After this, place some small rocks in them. Or, in case of a fall wedding, some berries.
An unusual idea is to place small buckets made of metals, and then fill them with some colorful pinwheel lollipops. In order to make the lollipops stand steadily, we recommend filling those buckets with some dry sand.
Nothing is lovelier than using fruits and vegetables combined with seasonal flowers, so use an arrangement like this one by combining fruits of different sizes and shapes, vegetables of similar coloring and seasonal flowers, that will compliment perfectly this type of centerpiece.
Cabbages were never been used like this, but this should not stop you from considering this centerpiece: use the rich tone of cabbages and make these vegetables work together with some purple irises, placed inside of them, as if the cabbages were some vases, ready to accommodate flowers. We admit that it is a bit difficult to make those cabbages stay perfectly still, but the overall combination is worth a shot.
And if you still need a memorable idea for a wedding centerpiece, why not try to pair some yellow fruits, such as lemons, with some smaller ones, such as nuts, for a remarkable composition. These fruits should be placed in a transparent bowl to allow guests to see its content.
