Autumn is the season when most of the crops are harvested, when grapes are ready to be transformed into wines, when pumpkins and apples immerse themselves into sweet pies and when grains celebrate the bounty of fall.
Speaking of grains, a very interesting centerpiece idea for a fall wedding is to use wheat, which symbolizes a fruitful life, and to combine it with dried grass in order to form a lovely centerpiece that will be placed on guest tables, without requiring flower vases. Next, you will see how to create a centerpiece like this, that requires several hundreds of stalks of dried grass and wheat.
At the beginning, you will have to bundle about 15 or 20 stems together, because it is easy to handle the ‘bouquet’, if those stems are secured with floral tape. So hold 15-20 stems in your hand and wrap them in floral tape; regarding the color of this floral tape, you need to choose a color that matches your ribbon and the color of the wheat. Floral tape is a handy tape, that becomes sticky when you stretch it, and is not sticky at all when you hold it in your hands as it is, meaning in a circular shape; it adheres only to itself and is available in a variety of shades. Centerpieces that use tens or hundreds of grains like the one we have mentioned earlier, but also flowers, need this type of handy tape, to hold those grains or flowers in position.
A centerpiece like this, which uses only grains and dried grass, does not need to be enhanced by candles or glasses placed next to it, because it is already very impressive and will definitely enjoy all wedding guests, regardless of their age.
