5 Creative (and DIY-able) Centrepieces

Good morning! That’s it, another week almost done and dusted; and here’s a scary thought for you, just 20 more Fridays until Christmas?! (Aahhh how can that even be possible??) Let’s not think about it right this minute, let’s instead turn our attention to this Friday’s fab 5 – and today I’ve gone all floral! This week’s Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons is all about the most creative, DIY-able and quite frankly jaw-droppingly fabulous centrepieces! If you are looking for just the perfect piece to adorn your tables with, and a fun, money-saving and actually do-able DIY project, then look no further!

Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons - 5 Creative & DIYable Centrepieces

1. Books may not be the most obvious choice for a wedding centrepiece, I don’t want to use the word mundane, but I know you were thinking it! However, find the right books and style them correctly and they don’t half look pretty! Select books in a certain palette or theme for each table and stand a simple floral display atop them or cascade your flowers over them, to create a centrepiece that is guaranteed to look beautiful and delight your guests…..

2. Hot Air Balloons make a whimsical and romantic centrepiece, as well as a real talking point! They are great for creating height in high ceilinged or open air venues, and they look opulent and create an impact without actually needing a lot of flowers – saving you $s!…..

3. Birdcages in all of their beautiful styles and shapes, always make me think of eras past. There is such an elegance and air of romance about them, they make the perfect table centrepiece. Either  filled with flowers or with just a few well placed stems they look ever so pretty…..

4. Box Planters are definitely more rustic, but with the right flowers they can look just as beautiful – and the really great thing about these sturdy little boxes is that they make the perfect keepsake, so re-use them in your home after your big day or gift them as thank-yous!…..

5. Bottles, especially coloured, make such effective centrepieces filled with single stems, or for a more dramatic look candles…..or you could do both! Have flowers throughout the day and then come evening, use your centrepieces to  create beautifully romantic lighting by replacing the flowers with candles!

What do you think? So easy and yet incredibly effective!

Right, I’m off to take the pup for a walk and then I think it’s time for a glass of wine. Happy weekend all!
