I love the idea of trying something totally different for a centerpiece. Take fruits and veggies, for example. In the right colors and arrangements, they can be beautiful! Add in some some small greenery and you’ve got some beautiful, fresh, and unexpected decor!

I caught sight of these unique vessels & flower arrangements a while back and was so inspired by their colors I just had to share them here. Artist Kate Rohde created these resin vases as part of a L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival exhibit, with florals done by the talented Cecilia Fox. They’re all so wild and carefree, and would make great inspiration for centerpieces.

An autumn wedding does not need to be associated only with orange, red, and brown. I found some lovely white pumpkins that can create the perfect vase for an all-white wedding. They are so easy to make that you’ll want to use them all year round.
Materials: white flowers of your choice, white pumpkins, knife, flower clippers
Step 1: Like normal jack-o-lantern, cut a circle into the pumpkin. Don’t make it too small or too wide. Too small might look a bit funny with flowers in it, and too wide might make them fall out.
Step 2: I left all the seeds inside so it would be easier to stick the flowers in.
Step 3: Put some water into the pumpkin for the flowers.
Step 4: Criss-cross the flowers so they hold their shape like above.
Step 5: Keep on criss-crossing until the pumpkin has a nice shape of flowers.
Done! Aren’t they just the cutest?!

I think it definitely takes a certain kind of person to get this, but hey, if we can spray paint toy animals as placecards, why not action figures as centerpieces??
