Centerpieces–not your mom’s centerpiece

One of the many decisions brides have to make is how to style the tables. A spectacular centerpiece on the table is like the icing on the cake. It’s an eye catching piece of decor that stimulates conversation and sets the atmosphere for the reception. This year centerpieces have moved beyond the traditional: fruits and vegetables are not just on the buffet, nature adds down-to-earth glamour, and the glowing cast of candles shadow the arrangements.


A beautiful touch to a fall wedding–add pomegranates and mini pumpkins for a lovely difference in color and texture.

Manzanita branches are a striking addition to give height to a centerpiece.  They are also a hard wood that can hold weight like these hanging votives.  Naturally they are a dark brown but take paint very easily so they can dress up your table with any color.


Want a dramatic pop of color for your tablescape–an orchid tree.  The dendrobium orchid is a beautiful variety of orchid which comes in many colors.  Their long stem with multiple blooms makes them a fabulous and price conscious alternative to make a breath-taking centerpiece.


Baby’s breath is making a come back however not like the 1980 baby’s breath that we remember.  There are many varieties of baby’s breath that can be used by itself and has a great wow factor–it also has a fantastic fragrance.
