I’m in LOVE with fruit centerpieces! These are some of the ones I’ve seen that I’m drawing inspiration from….
Our colors are going to be bright pink, lime, and yellow…but I also really like the orange, yellow and lime together without pink! I really can’t see leaving out the pink because it’s my favorite color, but I’m wondering if four colors would be too many?
In any case, since pink is pretty much a definite, I want to find a way to add pink to the centerpiece. If nothing else I could use gerbera daisies in some fashion (the bouquets will all be gerberas), but I was trying to think of another way to incorporate the pink.
So, I guess my questions are…
Does the combination of the 4 colors seem like it will be too much?
How can I add pink to the lemon/lime centerpieces without using flowers?

maybe pink ribbon and some pink daisies around the bottom?

Pink ribbon might work 🙂
Does it seem like using all four colors will be too much? I don’t really want the wedding to look like a candy store, or kids birthday party, if that makes any sense lol

I would leave the orange out if it’s not one of your colors.
I’m struggling on the pink ideas too, but maybe you could find gem vase fillers in pink, or you could paint small paper mache balls your shade of pink so they’ll be the same shape and size as the fruit.
You could also line the bottom in the daisies (pressed up against the vase) and then fill with the fruit.

@ soonerpsych I think I like the idea of painting paper mache balls pink! That just might work. I was hoping to stay away from flowers if possible, but now that I’ve had a couple suggestions to put them around the bottom of the vase I just might try that.
As for the orange…I like all four colors together, I’m just not sure if I should only go with three main colors so it doesn’t end up looking too crazy. I feel like maybe there won’t be a cohesive feel if there are too many colors. I plan on doing mostly white, with pops of bright color throughout all the decorating. Maybe if I’m limiting the amount of color I use, all four colors won’t seem so overwhelming.

How about a grape fruit? maybe thin disks floating in a bowl with floating candels?
