I need some centerpiece ideas. I had originally planned on 1 small round vase with a hydrangea for each table. I recently realized that 1 per table was not going to work because my tables are huge (6′ round) so I’m going to have to use 3 per table. Problem is, I can’t find the vases anymore, and my flowers are out of stock ’til next spring, and so I only have enough for about 1/3 of my tables. My Future Sister-In-Law has hurricans left from her wedding that I can use for the remaining tables, but I don’t know what to put in them! Any cute/unique ideas for centerpieces? My colors are ivory, pink and black. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

This idea is out ofa book called The DIY Bride, the instuctions look easy enough and it’s what i’m doing for my centerpieces, I’m pretty sure it would work with hurricanes. You could use whichever colored rocks you wanted and whatever paper combinations.

Honestly, we had 6′ rounds and by the time you add all of the plates, chargers, bread plates, silverware, dishes, napkins, waterglasses, wine glasses, salt and pepper shakers, etc, there really isn’t THAT much room in the center for a centerpiece. I think a Hydrangea head in a vase would be perfect. Alternatively, if you are looking for a bit more height and/or presence, you could add a book or upsde down square vase at the base of the round vase and drape it with a napkin.

you should see if your venue can do a mock table setting. Mrs. Corn is right , once the table is set you may not need anything else.

I second (third) Mrs. Corn and BunnyBlue… check it out before you spend money on more. To tell you from experience, I now have TOO MUCH stuff in the middle of my table and it looks squished. We’re working on pruning it down….
If you still think you need SOMETHING, stick with the one vase per table and surround it with a few tealights or votives candles that are spread out a bit. If you get the glass votives, you could jazz them up with pink/black ribbon! Sounds like you’d want to go for more horizontal fullness than vertical height, you know?
