Pretty, Budget-Friendly Centerpieces

Categories Centerpieces + Inspiration

Pretty as a picture!  Especially striking… the cobalt blue bottle {Yowsa!}.  If you love an eclectic look and crave a variety of elements… here’s an idea for creating beautiful budget-friendly vases.  Use 3-4 colored glass bottles at each reception table as a centerpiece.

First, shop thrift stores and flea markets to find perfume bottles, canning jars, etc.  Think of these pretty bottles as a visual experience for your guests… delightfully adding color and drama to each table.

Give each table depth…  through smaller to larger flower arrangements in varying heights of colored bottles.  Think of the conversations you’ll evoke as each bottle catches and filters the light!

Carry the theme… place sweet little colored bud vases like these  in the bathrooms… at the bar… at the dessert table…

Here’s a discussion I found on  Wedding Bee that includes additional ideas and links for cobalt blue vases.

Let me know what you think and Happy Earth Day!
