Centrepiece Idea #1. Natural wood and flowers displayed in old bottles

Looking for a table centrepiece that’s gorgeous, memorable and breathtaking – but won’t cost you thousands of dollars?

Stylish and understated natural features are the perfect answer.

Consider natural wood, elegant flowers in white or soft pink, antique glass bottles or milk jars, and gentle flickering candles.

Mix all these elements together with gentle restraint and plenty of white space.

You’ll have a centrepiece romantic enough for the most adventurous of princesses that won’t break the bank.

A natural centrepiece is perfect for wedding planners looking for a cheaper alternative to the traditional rose centrepiece.

How to create the perfect natural wedding table centrepiece

The natural wood base can be sourced from any nearby forest or bushland, a firewood seller or even a local hardware store. The timber is cheap and doesn’t need to be lacquered or treated – the more rustic, the better!

Add some glass containers and bottles to the top of the wood base, then fill them with small white flowers like daisies or alyssum. These flowers have a gorgeous vintage vibe while still maintaining an air of high-class romance and sophistication.

Throw in a couple of classic white roses (don’t overdo the roses – remember, we’re going for a budget-friendly option!) and light some white candles sourced from your local dollar shop. Then, when you let the champagne flow, you’ll add the perfect soft, gold addition to complement your table design.

The natural wood, basic white flowers and “I just threw this together last minute” carefree vibes will have you and your friends swooning over those Instagram wedding photos for many years to come.

Centrepiece Idea #2. Traditional roses in crystal vases

Thinking something more traditional?

Roses are the flower of love.

Roses are impossibly romantic. We give them to each other as a gesture of love. A bouquet of roses is considered a rare, extravagant gift and we scatter their petals around bedrooms and baths for an extra romantic atmosphere.

There’s no wonder roses are the number one most used flower for weddings.

Roses are versatile, and they come in a range of gorgeous colours and sweet, room-filling scents to suit whatever atmosphere you’re looking to create. Choose single coloured roses if you’re planning a strong a colour themed wedding or, alternatively, if you have a more monochrome palette – you can create an explosion of vivid colour contrast with a collection of coloured roses.

Think pale pink, peach, warm purples and lilac, white or even orange.

You can keep the flowers hydrated through the wedding and reception in crystal vases wrapped in thick gold, glitter-covered ribbon. The glass and the ribbon will throw stunning rainbows in the sunlight.

Event supply specialists, Shindigs, has a huge range of wedding ribbon available online for your table centrepiece needs.

For timeless style, pick something metallic or satin, but if you really want to make a statement – find something covered in glitter!

Centrepiece Idea #3. Incorporate food… lots and lots of food!

If there’s something more romantic than doughnuts, I don’t want to know about it.

Food is a creative, unforgettable and edible alternative to traditional candle and flower centrepieces.

Stack up the cupcakes, lollies and different flavoured doughnuts on a glass cupcake stand! The sweet, delicious cakes and treats will create a fun-loving atmosphere as soon as your guests walk into the venue (and you’ll be providing your friends and fans with a smorgasbord of snacks all night long.

Also, a doughnut arrangement sprinkled with edible icing flowers can never go wrong. Your guests will be drooling with your thoughtfulness and creativity.

Are you drooling over these wedding centrepieces?

We know we are… especially the one with the doughnuts.


A wedding reception needs unique table centrepieces to create an atmosphere of elegance, luxury and heartwarming romance. Centrepieces add a lot to the design of a wedding reception and will make wedding photos “pop” with colour and creativity.

Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, so gather ideas for centrepieces ahead of time and consider these chic table ideas:

  • Rustic natural wood, old bottles, dainty white flowers and candles burning with vanilla scents
  • Traditional roses in a range of warm colours, displayed in classic crystal vases which catch the sunlight
  • Stacks of doughnuts and treats, complemented with edible icing flowers
  • A chaotic centrepiece made up of your favourite items, patterns and trends

Be sure to find a reception venue which offers heaps of time for set-up and free-range on decorating, too. It’d be a shame to cancel your extravagant wedding plans because the wedding venue has a thing against glitter.

We recommend steering clear of bars, restaurants, and vineyards for your reception. Getting access to these venues ahead of schedule can be difficult and there’s nothing more nightmarish than having to set-up AND pack-up on your wedding day.

You won’t have that problem with Hunter294. We’re here to ensure your wedding do goes off without a hitch and we can help set-up, decorate, and cater to your guests with high-quality food and beverages.
