For our DIY or better yet DIT (do-it-together) couples, we decided to gather a few fresh ideas for creative centerpieces that are low on effort but big on “wow” factor. These centerpieces would be a beautiful addition to a wedding or a special event. Buy your bulk flowers from a reputable online vendor such as BunchesDirect. This will save you up to 70% from retail florists, with farm fresh flowers delivered right to your door for you to work your creative magic!
Ribbon Vase with Bright Blooms
Buy a square tin from the dollar store and hot glue on ribbons in various pretty colors to coordinate with your theme. Choose brightly colored flowers such as these pink peonies, pink tulips, red roses, and bright green verbena to create some gorgeous visual “punch.” This effect is more casual and festive, so it would suit a variety of venues and less formal themes.
If you have having a beach or farm wedding, you can make a very creative table display out of a piece of old driftwood, lumber, or an interesting tree branch. Drill holes for the flowers and order up a selection of your favorite blooms such as bold dahlias, pretty roses and dainty ranunculus. You can use slim bud vases or even beakers to hold water for your flowers.
Pumpkin Vase Centerpieces
If you are having a fall wedding or event, using pumpkins for vases combined with warm orange-toned flowers creates the perfect touch! Remove pumpkin tops, thoroughly clean and hollow out space inside, and add tin cans or other plastic containers to hold the water. Choose flowers such as orange calla lilies, coral roses, or orange gerbera daisies to enhance the autumn effect.
Above and Below
Create a long linear centerpiece effect with flowers and greens and keep your flowers all the same color, such as this clean white selection. For extra-amazing effect, hang separate blooms such as white carnations from clear fishing wire overhead. Your guests are sure to be amazed and your event will be the talk of the town.
Purchase plexiglass boxes from a craft or organizer store. Fill each one with a different variety of flower. For most impact, place one flower type in uniform color in each box, coordinating the overall color choices with your other decor accents. Stack the boxes– and bingo, you will have one of the most creative centerpieces at any event, with very little effort!
