Post your centerpieces here

Recommended Posts

I didn't get a chance to set an entire table and take pics of the centerpiece with candles and linens, but I was so excited to finish the main centerpiece and share with all of you- so please excuse the dark pic and use your imagination! :)

Here is a centerpiece I put together. I would love it if someone had any advice on how to make it better. Our colors are pink and orange.
I think it depends on the "look" that you are going for. If you're going for a more formal or sophisticated look I'd maybe try black accents in there somewhere. Maybe a small black tray or black glass pebble things.

If you're looking for a color to make it "pop" then I'd say maybe something blue, green, or blue-green. On an artist's "color wheel" those are the colors that complement orange and red. So even though it sounds weird supposedly they go together. So maybe some small accents in complementary colors would give it the slight separation of color you're looking for.

Lillies (fresh at the wedding)

I thought about putting a lime green ribbon around the vase, but decided against it. What do you think? I would love to hear your honest opinion!

We're using starfish as our place card holder by tying a tag with the names on one side and the table name on the other. We're alternating pink and orange riboon. Then we're sticking them in a shallow metal container filled with sand. Maybe give the luggage tags as a gift at the tables.

my other thought was to have the 2" starfish as placedard holders aka favors, placing the placecards on the top of the starfish so that it rests there- the placecards I am thinking of making luggage tags. Too much?

All of these ideas are wonderful! I am so glad that I found them all. Thank you for the creative ideas.

I have already bought 5 of these candle holders from ZGallerie and I am planning on using them for some of th tables and using flower arrangements on the other tables. Coquille Pillar Holder

Everyone's centerpieces are gorgeous! We are kind of going with a turquoise and starfish theme but just got the quote from the hotel for centerpieces - $100 a piece! So, now I am frantically trying to come up with something that is easy to take down in our luggage and fits with our theme. I was wondering where everyone are getting the large starfish from?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
