Containers To Fit Your Reception Tables

There are many different types of containers that can be used for wedding floral centerpieces. Traditional vases can be used, but you can also look for unique shapes and containers for something different.

Hurricane vases work really well, and other containers like fish bowls, birdcages and bottles can be a lot of fun. Try matching your container with your wedding theme, and don't be afraid to get creative.

A newer trend in wedding receptions is family style wedding tables. This allows you the option to choose rectangular or square containers to hold your flowers instead of the usual round vases.

Try filling the vases with items like pearls, stones or colored water to add some flair, and ribbons can also be tied around your containers.

Flowers With Accent Items

Flowers can definitely stand on their own, but sometimes it is nice to combine flowers with other accent items. This works especially well for seasonal wedding centerpieces.

For example, if you are having a fall wedding try using pumpkins along with flowers. For a winter or Christmas wedding, adding ornaments or pine cones works really well.

Candles are another great accent item that helps to set the mood at your wedding reception. Used correctly in your centerpieces, candles and flowers can make a stunning combination.

You can also sprinkle flower petals on your reception tables around the vases or containers.
