"a centerpiece should stand tall enough to be visible from a distance in order to create a table top that's truly 'set'"..

wedding centrepieces

Amongst the cutlery, wedding favors, and table number holders that decorate a reception table, the table's centerpiece is what acts as the main focal point, pulling all other elements together. Though tiny items such as tea lights, glass beads and flower petals look pretty when scattered on a reception table, a centerpiece should stand tall enough to be visible from a distance in order to create a table top that's truly "set".

Elements of a Centerpiece

A reception centerpiece is usually composed of at least one large element, such as a vase or candle holder, which displays smaller elements, such as flowers, sand, candles, glass beads, shells, etc. Both the colours of the centerpiece items and the way in which they are displayed can be customized to suit the season of your wedding. For example, a summer or destination wedding is perfectly complemented by a combination of seashells, sand, and candles in light colours; while an autumn wedding could be reflected in a centerpiece of sunflowers, gourds, and harvest-coloured candles.
