How to choose the right centrepieces for your event
If you are confused about what sort of centrepiece will work for your event, here are a few guidelines to help you:
First and foremost what kind of activity are you having? Wedding, birthday. Bridal shower, a corporate affair? The theme of your event will automatically dictate some type of décor you’d go with and hence the centrepieces too. It is like while flowers may work for wedding and birthdays both, balloons are suited to birthday and bridal showers only. Also if you have unique theme colors that can also help narrow down the design and idea of the centrepiece.
When choosing centrepiece consider the kind of statement it makes. You don’t want it to be too flashy and big that it starts looking ugly and at the same times you don’t want it to be too forgettable. Flower arrangement should be at the right height, a big vase with large flower arrangements will make it harder for guests to talk to each other and most certainly will become a barrier in communication. So the general rule of thumb when it comes to flower arrangement is to keep the vase the height of a drinking glass. Also, flowers can attract all sorts of bees, if you think your open venue might have bees its best to stick to artificial flower arrangement instead.
Centrepieces can be grand and expensive and as well as smart and only cost a few bucks. If you want to splurge and go all in you can find greatly elaborate centrepieces that fit your event theme. At the same time, if you don’t want to end up so much on centrepieces, you can always DIY them. The web is full of centrepiece ideas that you can make yourself. You can also rent centrepieces from the decorators, that sure is a cheaper and reasonable option. Decorators have plenty of fun options to choose from like lanterns, artificial flower vases, plant buckets and more.
