Table Decor – Centre of Attention

Sept 18, 2019

The one thing that many couples struggle to decide on are their table centres so what should you think about when choosing your centrepieces? Here’s our guide to get you started!

Firstly, when you’re thinking about designs, consider the height. You want your table decor to be sociable, something that still enables guests to talk across the table without obstruction. If you’re opting for a tall centrepiece then transparent vases or something slimline is a great option, ideally the bulk of the arrangement needs to sit above head height.

Having quite a few tables? Try using two complimenting centrepiece designs to add depth to your styling – perhaps half of them could be florals and the other half could be more focused on candlelight.

Alternatively if you’re working with a larger space and high ceilings then a split of tall arrangements/artificial trees with a lower level design is very impactful.

Our stylists will work with you to plan the most effective layout for your centrepieces and will discuss which tables would be best to display each one on.

Once you’re happy with the layout of your designs, you now need to complete them with table numbers/names.

There’s so many ways for couples to number their tables so try to pick something subtle that works with the table centre as an added feature as opposed to the table number competing for attention.

Looking at ways of defining your aisle? Choose decor that is multipurpose. Those large floral arrangements you had planned for your wedding breakfast tables would look incredible displayed on pedestals beforehand! Don’t forget your registrar table either, utilise the decor that you had planned for your top table to go on here first and then this can be transferred through.

If you’re one of the many people that are choosing a banquet style design in 2020/21 then rolling florals and foliage with interspersed candlelight at varying heights is a guaranteed way to add the wow factor!
