i’m getting married next august. for our outdoor garden reception, i love the idea of incorporating white peaches. i’m thinking of using a basket or bowl of peaches as centerpieces, but i’m not sure what kind of basket or bowl i should use. any ideas? i’m hoping to find something with a vintage feel that is not too expensive. thanks in advance!

Try looking at the dollar stores and thrift store for your baskets and/or bowls. You will find more of a selection of baskets as it gets closer to Easter.

I agree with the dollar store idea! Target, too. And you will find a ton more baskets around Easter.

Goodwill is also a great place to look for baskets. 🙂 I bought 2 of my baskets there!

I think something like this would look great on a table if you are looking for something small…

For some reason I think using a domed cake plate would look really great. Finding a vintage looking one like this one in a creamy color: (w/o the writing) and putting some peaches underneath..

Michaels has some good deals on baskets and they have coupons. Maybe something pastel in a colored bowl, since your talking about white peaches, so they pop.

the baskets look more rural than vintage, imo. i would use glass bowls. look at the charleston bowl at crate & barrel (it’s probably too expensive to use for your centerpieces, but that’s the shape i have in mind). you could also stick in a few flowers scattered between the peaches.
if you can find colored glass cake plates, those would be really cute too! that definitely looks more vintage. i wouldn’t use a dome on them though.

thanks for the feedback!!! i do love the look of peaches in a basket, maybe even a vintage-patterned cloth-lined basket, but i agree with miss kitzy that fruit baskets are more rustic, less vintage. i’m leaning towards milk glass compotes, something similar to this. any thoughts?

The milk glass is beautiful but bigger pieces like the one in your picture can get expensive. You have plenty of time so I would start searching Goodwill and thrift stores now. You could also find clear glass bowls in similar styles.

I would try to eat your centerpieces, so just a warning. You may have to deal with that. 😉
I love the look of the milk glass compotes.

yes, i definitely will start looking. i think i’ll probably use some variation of milk glass at each table (bud vases full of peach colored flowers on some and bowls of peaches on others), and also incorporate some other vintage items on the table. i really appreciate everyone’s comments, thanks!

You can also find clear bowls and DIY them into milk glass. Here’s a link through this amazing website I like to check out.
