Creating table wedding centerpiece ideas that are both inviting and tasteful is an important part of the wedding planning process. While there is no set rule as to what a centerpiece should be, the one that reflects the wedding theme and pulls the room together should be ideal. If yours is an eco-friendly wedding, consider table decorations made from recycled, repurposed or natural materials. Here are some ideas to inspire you.
Eco-Friendly Wedding Centerpiece Ideas
From banzai to basil, potted plants make perfect wedding centerpieces. Cut flowers from florists are usually expensive and not very ecological. They are produced using harmful chemicals, and pesticides, and not to forget the transportation involved. So go local and opt for potted plants. They are not only a great alternative to fresh cut flowers but also double up as green wedding favors.
When it comes to wedding décor, you can never go wrong with candle centerpieces. However, be sure to choose soy candles instead of usual paraffin wax candles. They are eco-friendly, offer clean burning and best of all, manufactured from a renewable resource.
Whether it’s a mason jar craft or old wine bottles, recycled or reused glass make perfect eco-friendly wedding centerpieces. Fill them with decorative items of your choice such as wildflowers, pine cones, candles, or branches. Make sure to choose a variety of sizes and colors to create an instant impact.
Fruit wedding centerpiece
Centerpieces made from fruits and veggies are perhaps the most eco-friendly table décor options. In a glass bowl or vase put bright yellow lemons, oranges or green apples for a visually appealing centerpiece. Make sure to use fruits that can stand up without browning or wither in warmer temperatures. Tie a complementing silk or organic cotton ribbon around the neck of the vase or add some twigs to create interest.
Eco-friendly does not mean boring, all it means is that you pledge to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Use these ideas and tweak it with your creativity to set a table that’s both beautiful and sustainable.
