    Table centrepieces that don't involve flowers?

    Our budget for flowers isn't huge and although I have done plenty of research and got lots of quotes, and booked our florist, I am trying to save on the budget by not having flowers as centrepieces. 

    We do want stacks of vintage books and some terrariums with tea lights in, but I am worried that the lack of flowers will be noticed. Has anyone got any ideas on what else we could add to the table to jazz them up a bit? We are not 'mainstream' when it comes to wedding so anything unusual but classy would be great!

    I have looked at fake flowers to try and keep the budget low but think everything looks a bit cheap and tacky. If anyone knows of any decent looking silk flower suppliers please do let me know! I have looked on ebay but am really sceptical of the photos on there.

    Your current ideas sound great! You could also go with table runners, ribbons and alternative centrepieces like you have mentioned will impress guests instead and they will forget about flowers. If you are that bothered about flowers you could accompany the centrepieces with tiny/tall vases with one or two flowers in (maybe shop bought flowers?). But its really not necessary.

    Your idea sounds fabulous. We were thinking that as well but have now decided on a big pot of Lego so people can build things. I don't think flowers are necessary at all - it's just the done thing but that doesn't mean it has to be done!

    Are your tables round? We have 3 long tables and while I have some flower boxes dotted around, I'm also getting a bunch of votive candle holders to scatter about inbetween. My table runners are really long pieces of soft white muslin that's about £20 for 10m on ebay. If I wasn't having boxes then I'd have the stacks of books with candles dotted about too.

    Hi,

    I don’t want flowers as centrepieces either because I think that it’s such a waste of money! I have ordered some tall lanterns from Matalan which will have pillar candles burning inside them. I plan on dotting some tea lights around in pretty votives and perhaps having a few single stem flowers in individual vases too. I have glittery table numbers and I also have pink and gold glitter circular table confetti. I am also thinking of gold sequin runners and chair hoods to jazz it up a bit. Oh, and using a log slice to stand everything on too. Hope this helps x
