Summer wedding centerpieces

Cursive number 1Summer wedding centerpiecesEdible

Forget the cocktail table flowers and substitute with edible centerpieces. Use glass cube vases and cube votives filled with pita triangles, veggies, spreads and dips. They are just as gorgeous, practical and cost effective.

Cursive number 2Rustic

Place a lazy Susan in the center of each reception table and fill with loaves of whole and sliced bread. Surround with pates, flavored butters, olive oil cruets, and pillar and votive candles. It creates a bountiful rustic look.

Cursive number 3Simple

Place a tall glass vase on each table. Fill with either whole fruits, zen type stones or rocks, or colored water and floating flowers.


Rent gorgeous oversized wine buckets and place in the middle of each table. Simply fill with ice and wine. Surround with votives to complete the look.
