{Bright Idea Thursday} Non-Flower Centerpieces

I recently did some research online searching for ideas on non-flower centerpieces to help a client and figured I'd share what I found! Sometimes you don't have enough money in your budget for spending a lot on flower arrangements or maybe you are not a huge fan of fresh cut flowers. Whatever the reason, you may like some of these ideas. 
Buy gift card sets and frame them to put around the tables with candles, this etsy artist does beautiful drawings of historic Savannah locations. Or buy a variety of Savannah postcards and frame them. Instead of fresh flowers use Potpourri in shallow vases, it will smell really nice too. Or combine minimal flowers cut really short that can live for awhile without water and place in vases with fruit. Another way of using minimal flowers is the example with the wine bottles and recycled glass containers, which uses inexpensive flowers sparingly. Going along with the wine theme, maybe you save your wine corks and don't know what to do with them-why not use them as decorative details for your wedding. You could also buy potted plants that are in season or create herb centerpieces to place on each table. Candles can be bought in bulk and look so pretty on their own like the example of the DIY lace candles or just wine glasses with floating candles. If you are feeling crafty and want to include photos for your centerpieces, consider trying to make the DIY photo frames with votives. Your napkins can help with adding a design element to the tables and place settings too. Well, I hope I gave you some inspiration!
