"Are you looking for a fresh source of inspiration for your centerpieces? Here are some modern options to explore: make each centerpiece focused around a different location you and your sweetie have traveled to. Use chalkboard signs to put lyrics of your favorite songs on the table and make a game out of it with the DJ. Spray paint empty wine bottles or wrap them with twine. Try arranging flowers in a unique way such as on a cake stand, submerged in water, or even on a hanging chandelier. Place flowers in a lantern, geometric votive, or under a glass dome with moss and greenery. Add garlands on farm style tables incorporating your favorite flowers, herbs, or fruits. Let your inner child come alive with a bowl of Legos, scrabble pieces, small figurines, or game boards. Try suspended centerpieces like mini hot air balloons, large life-size balloons, or a candle-light fixture. Combine fruits, vegetables, or harvest grains into a centerpiece. Place floral décor in a pumpkin, collect potted herbs for some good smells, tie a bundle of wheat or lavender together, or use a gold calligraphed apple for assigned seating placements. For the ultimate foodie, offer edible centerpieces. Place fruit or cheese on a wood board, displays of mixed desserts on cake stands, or a chocolate truffle tree. Every table and every centerpiece doesn’t have to look the same. Get as sweet or as simple as you would like!"
