Bridal Shower Centerpieces
Bridal shower centerpieces add a lot of meaning to the event and preferably should be useful for the bride to take home later. Centerpieces ideally should be kept on every table or just one big table on the stage.
Centerpieces for Small Tables:
You could choose from a variety of centerpieces depending on your theme. However, the best options would be small earthen plant pots, small flower vases, aromatic candles, herbs or petals arranged in a glass bowl. You can use a floating candle along with petals or artificial pearls in a small glass bowl. However, these are some of the options available for small tables meant for guests to sit and have a food. While choosing these centerpieces, make sure they do not occupy too much space on the table or are not too long in height.
Long centerpieces would block the view of the guests making it inconvenient for them to talk to the person on the other side of the table. Wide centerpieces occupy too much space making it inconvenient for the guests to keep their plates on the table and eat comfortably.
One innovative idea for a centerpiece is to keep a bag of goodies on each table or a gift basket containing some small useful gift.
Centerpieces for Big tables:
These could be placed at the entrance, in the center or on the stage. These could consist of big earthen pots with plants like fern, palm tree or any other non flowering plant. You can have a huge bowl with 4-5 floating candles in it. You could add some rose petals in it. You can also keep a bowl of herbs, flowers, big aromatic candles, big bag of various goodies, towel cake, etc.
Towel Cake is an unique idea and works well most of the times. The bride can takes that home later and use it. It is basically a concept wherein you can have some of the gift articles wrapped inside a set of towels, make it in a cake shape and decorate it on the tops; just like a cake. You can buy these readymade. However, if you want to try it on your own you can use two big bath towels, 2 kitchen napkins and two washcloths. You need to tie the big towels to a coil. This forms the bottom two layers of the towel cake. Continue wrapping the napkins on the coil and wrap the washcloths to form the topmost small layer of the cake. Decorate it with bows and satin ribbons. Insert some goodies inside the cake likes chocolates, soaps, moisturizing lotions, candles, tea or coffee packets or any other useful items. Never stick the towels with glue. Always use pins. The bride to be can take this home and use all of it later.
Candles along with the beautiful candle stands are useful as well as they are good option for a gift. They are available in plenty of sizes, shapes, colors, fragrance, etc. Hence, you have a wide variety to choose from and these almost always look good. Small candles on small tables and a big candle or an unity candle on the big table. Floating candles are also a good option.
Picture Frame of the future bride and groom are also a good idea. You can frame the picture and put it as a centerpiece on each table. You can choose something else for the small tables like candles or small plants.
You can choose from a wide variety of bridal shower centerpieces available online or at a local store depending on your choice and budget. Ideally it is good to have a one small centerpiece on each table and one big centerpiece on the stage or at the entrance.
