Make weddings even more memorable with your friends at Scully & Scully. We’ve got all the inspiration and decorative accessories necessary for creating one-of-a-kind DIY centerpieces. In addition to the product selections below featuring some of our most popular vases, we’ve put together a list of ideas for making your centerpieces pop.
- Consider the size of the centerpiece: Smaller setups and vases call for something subtle and sweet, even as little as 2 or 3 accent flowers. Larger vases are best for arrangements that are bold and blooming.
- Calculate the time of wedding prep, ceremony, and reception: Freshly bought flowers with really thick stems are the most likely to withstand long periods of time without any noticeable signs of wilting.
- Speaking of stems: If the flowers don’t arrive pre-cut, simply cut the bottom few inches and remove any thorns prior to placing them in water for ultimate beauty and nourishment. Some necessary tools for this project includes shears, flower food, waterproof floral tape, and stem strippers.
- Get creative with color: Find flowers, ribbons, and other decorative items in colors that complement the wedding’s theme. For instance, a winter-themed wedding could use a splash of icy blue contrast against snow white shades; meanwhile rustic weddings with autumnal colors go perfectly with celebratory yellows and orange hues that stand out brightly.
- Find ways to mix-and-match centerpiece accessories: Depending on the theme, it’s important to either create or decorate candle holders and other special trinkets designed to mark the special occasion. Keep it simple with a single candlestick adorned by ribbons and rose petals, or create a gorgeous cacophony of lighting with a set of stacked candles for a dimensional layering effect.
- Keep the guests excited and entertained: Give the reception a personal touch with handmade table numbers and place settings placed inside clear float frames. Another fun idea goes beyond the traditional guestbook by placing fine-point permanent markers alongside small garden stones for each person to write their own sweet messages for the bride and groom to take home with them.
Below, we’ve also highlighted some of our favorite items for making your DIY wedding table centerpieces extra picture-worthy.
