This website has a lot of non-floral centerpiece ideas that you could make with your colours:

What if you use actual plums and/or limes in your centerpieces, maybe stacked in a glass vase or something?  I think plums have a nice look, and add in some long sticks with them in a cylinder vase.

@SpringGreen17: 

Limes would probably work better in a vase than plums (They would probably end up being messy.  Then you could use plum colored ribbon to go around the vase.

We are doing a very non-floral centerpiece. We are having a Halloween theme reception so we are using skulls and candlebras along with spiders and webs as the centerpieces. I’m also creating the bridesmaid bouquets and boutineers from fake flowers and my bouquet will be fake too that way they will last forever! 🙂 Flowers are so expensive and they don’t last that long either!

Were using willow branches (cheaper than manzanita) with hanging crystals, I have river rocks and moss for the vases. I think we paid under $12 for each and everything can be re-sold.

I’m just not a flower person… this is a pre-wedding pic, but they looked amazing during the reception.We ended up just using silver ribbon on the small vases as well. Oh, and we commissioned our parents to use Michaels coupons to buy the big vases– super saver!

I don’t know if this is non-floral enough, but I did not use any actual flowers. My centerpieces were a mixture of cotton, wood flowers and seeds and pods.

 

I got the cotton from cottonman.com, most of the pods and wood flowers from Michaels, and the orange and cream swirly flowers, like the ones in my bouquet, from save-on-crafts.com
