Orange & Chocolate
This centerpiece idea is super easy to pull off and shouldn't take more than 15 minutes! (You can tailor this look to any type of color sheme.)
Here's what you'll need:
• Short glass cylinder vases
• Table Runner (pictured here: Simrin's Orange Surya Runner)
• Oversize fresh or faux flower blooms
• Sand or other vase filler
Embellish the vases with a band or ribbon, then fil them part way with the decorative sand.
Next, pull the flower blooms off their stems, then place one on each of the vases (for faux flowers this may require wire cutters if the bloom doesn't easily detach.)
Spread the arrangements out evenly on the runner, set candles in between each of them, and done!
12x12" scrapbook paper works great for inexpensive placemats.
Embellish stemware with ribbon that coordinates with your centerpiece.
Fill blumebud placecard holders, glass votive holders, or short bud vases with single stems of fresh flowers that coordinate with your centerpiece blooms. Blumebuds have built-in placecards - so if you're using mini vases and still want to have assigned seating, just use a simple fold-style placecard at the head of your place setting.
