Centerpiece Ideas...can I get your opinion

Mrs. Vitucci, on February 2, 2011 at 7:18 PM Posted in Planning

I am having a fall wedding and a couple different centerpiece ideas in mind. Now I've been to a few weddings within the last few years and 1 had flowers and the other the hurricane lamp and for mine I want something really different. My venue I'm looking at is a barn.

I'm posting 3 different pictures and also I have one other idea that you I can't find a picture of so you have to put your creative caps on

I was thinking of having a large (real) pumpkin in the middle of the table and have it carved out with "table and the No" and then having a candle inside so it lights up then having leaves around the pumpkin and maybe some little fake pumpkins surrounding it also.

So out of the 4 which do you like best?

    Oh and no little black spiders on the candles (in the last one)

    I like #1 the best I am also having a fall wedding and I've been having a hard time trying to come up with a centerpiece.. I wanted something I could DIY.

    I think I've finally found something I like

    I like #1 as well. I'm also having fall wedding (tree themed as well) and we are doing these, super cheap (we are cutting a few trees down that are about to fall on the house in a month or two-- and my dad has a saw)...but I'm going to add some preserved red/orange/yellow/brown leaves under the candles to give it a little pop.

    I like 1 out of the pics. I think the "jack o lantern" idea is cute if u know how to carve out nice and quick. That would be the mos creative. Maybe cutout the number, put an electric light inside and some flowers on top

    If you are only using one then the first one. But why not use more than one? Yes, nix the spiders. ;-)

    I love the 1st and 2nd ones.

    I am also having a fall wedding and have attached my centerpieces. Although the candles will be in a hurricane lamp instead of the bowl.

    1 or 2

    Why not alternate on different tables? I think 3 is cute for a house party, not for a wedding.

    Here are some other images for your inspiration boards.

    And here is Option 4.

    I like #1 and #4...

    Yes @ Stacy C--- I'm going to attempt to do the initials -- I'm not sure I'm quite that handy with a wood burner though, but I def thinks it gives it a little something extra. -- honestly if I get really lazy I might just paint it on there in dark brown/black

    Hayley pretty much dominated and rocked the hat off the pumpkin examples. Those looked awesome! I'm a fan of number 1
