Wedding Reception Centerpieces

Beautiful wedding reception centerpieces don't have to cost hundreds of dollars. You can learn how to make your own centerpieces that will look just as good as a professional flower shop makes. The key is having the right products with you providing the labor. (Think of all those friends and family who want to help!) Here are some lovely ideas below to get you started.

Cover a square box with satin (or another fabric). Create your floral arrangement in a cheap container and set inside. This creates a beautiful "custom flower arrangement" look for a minimum cost.





Long and low centerpieces work nicely on the long rectangular tables. Using a Ready-to-Use spray or raquette bar makes these type of centerpieces so easy. A long brick of Oasis florist foam is covered in green polyfilm. You simply float, soak and poke the flowers in!





Cluster several pillar candles together in a bowl, green and add short stemmed roses or other large headed flowers for a centerpiece that is easy . . yet looks so sophisticated!







This elegant centerpiece is made with an Oasis Sphere foam ball, miniature pom pomps, and (note the extra touch!) decorative pearl pins in the center of each flower head. The clear glass bowl actually holds real blueberries.





Wrap a bowl in fabric, lower your flower arrangement in and finish by tying a bow with contrasting ribbon. So much fun and truly makes your wedding reception centerpieces personalized and one-of-a-kind original!






Begin with a glassed candle and surround with an Oasis foam ring. Tuck in short stemmed flowers and your arrangement is ready to light!







Simple topiaries can be made by using the stalks of long stemmed flowers. These Alstroemeria provide long, tall stems bound together with decorative colored wire.






Simple miniature mums shine when the center of each flower is accented with a colored pearl headed pin. These pins come in several different colors. Jeweled ones are available as well.







A lighted base creates a show stopping arrangement! The color glows even more when a clear vase is filled with a clear (or colored) sheer vase filler.
