Have you tried leaves and pinecones spray-painted silver to go with your theme? It might work…

I had non-floral centerpieces. I originally picked them out for the wedding date of Oct. 16, 2010, but we ended up moving the wedding up to May 15, 2010. But I didn’t want to switch the centerpiece design. HERE is what I wanted them to look like and HERE is how they turned out. I wasn’t happy with the way the setup team set them up. They didn’t even use half of the branches.


I hope that gives you some inspiration! Good luck!

Are you open to one flower per centerpiece?

You could do a purple orchid , aster or other purple flower

you could use plums, baby eggplants


dried purple globe thistles:

 If you decide to use ornaments, make sure you pick an appropriate size so your vase is full.

If they are too big, and there is too much open space, your centerpiece will look skimpy.

We have the same colors and the same idea!  I added ribbons to the two vases with ornaments and did a smaller one with a candle.  I got the ornaments at Walmart before Christmas for a steal.  You might want to go check out what they have on sale now.  They look a little blue in the lighting but it’s a combo of the lighting in the room and my camera – they are definitely dark purple.  I got the medium and small vases at Walmart as well and got the bigger ones at Dollar Tree.  We ended up doing this for 12 tables for under $200.

Here are a few ideas that you can use. The flowers in this pic are not real but can be based on your budget. Candles are always great! The short vases are from Dollar Tree and the tall one is 20″ I think I got them at Michaels. The mini tealight crystal holders are expensive $5 but so cute!

You can easily break the branches if they are too tall for the vase. I am adding crystal gems to the bottom of the center vase. The glitter branches are on clearance at Michaels right now.

You could do wicker balls in your vase…you could spraypaint them to your colours.  That way it will give you a similar look but won’t be so Christmas-y?

I was just going to suggest that! The holes in the wicker (or even metal based ones…) will help it go from christmas to fall! 🙂


Best of luck!

Similar thread here:

I posted the pic below. Try adding the mini ornaments to take up space in the vase, and also some garland type beads maybe?

We made these centerpieces for our November wedding. You could spray paint branches silver and then put the purple ornaments in the base as filler.
