Centerpieces are one of the things in wedding planning that I’m usually not too excited about. I think it’s mostly because it’s one of those things the people feel like they NEED to have, but they never want to spend much money on them. The result is typically an ugly, obviously cheap item placed on each table and called a decoration.
Ok, maybe I’m being too harsh. But really- most of the time when I get to a reception, I feel like the tables would look better if we just got rid of the centerpiece and went with the plane table cloth.
After a bit of searching, I’ve found a nice collection of centerpiece ideas that are unique, pretty and -best of all- cheap. Most of these can be created with a simple vase or container found at Walmart or the dollar store and then filled with a single flower (because a whole bouquet for every table would cost a lot more!) that can be bought in bulk at a place Costco or Walmart. Just about all of these are simple enough that anybody could make them without much work no matter their skill level when it comes to crafts.
