    Meh. I'm not impressed. Centerpieces should be purely decorative : (1 votes)

    Sounds good, maybe with some candles as well?

    I think it is a great idea but I’m not sure it will take the place of a centerpiece.

    If I were going to do it, I would want to ensure that it really was a focal point, not just a few slices of bread and some buns.

    include wine and vegetables for color

    this one has a bright colored napkin and is surrounded by various colored tomotoes

    yum I would love to have that at a wedding. I agree that it would look nice with some extra decor, just small things like the fruit or candles. but overall I think it’s a great idea!

    What a wonderful Idea!! I would love to see that at a wedding! I wish I could fit it into my decor :o(. My SIL-2b had 10-12 inch cakes on a pedastle at each table. It served double duty of not having to serve cake and worry about centerpieces. People loved it! … and it forced them to mingle because different tables had different cakes.. if you want carrot, go find it!

    Sounds awesome, but what happens when it gets eaten? You’d end up with empty baskets with crumbs… You’d have to make sure your venue is on tight orders to keep refilling the baskets and see how much extra that might cost you. Personally I’m a bread fiend, so I’d be happy with a bottomless basket 😉

    You sound like you’re really excited about this idea, which usually means its the right one!

    I like it. It’s functional, pretty and very, very unique. I would modify/tweak/think about two things: 1) put a small lamp/candle lamp on the table as well, or perhaps a bud vase with a single flower to compliment it and to give it a slightly more “complete” look. and

    2) I would give more thought to the butter/dipping sauce angle. How many per table? Are you going to put multiple versions of the same butter on each table so that  Person A doesn’t have to reach across Person C and Person B to get the butter they want? Or could you maybe give at each person’s setting a little dish of, say, five different butters/dipping sauces so they each have their own personal stash and don’t have to deal with other people’s crumbs or knives poking every which way. If you did that, how would it work? Just something to maybe think about….? 🙂

    But other than that, I think it’s an awesomely cool idea. Good thinking!

    I love the idea of including bread in your centerpiece.  I love bread too!  I agree with summerbride12 in that you need a little extra decor besides the bread because once the bread is eaten, your table might look a little bare.
