How to Create Table Centerpieces Which Won’t Break the Bank

The trick with making affordable party table centrepieces is to think outside the box. As a focal point on your party table, a centerpiece needs to look great and reflect your party theme. Using retro or recycled accessories, flowers and other items from outside are easy to find and low cost. Your centerpieces don’t need to be large and extravagant. Often a small, simple table centerpiece is more effective. We love creating centerpieces and the other details you’d see at an adult party! Our Adult Party Styling package can be customised to suit your exact requirements. Hollywood, Toga or Vintage, nothing is too much trouble for our Auckland party designers!

Making a Halloween Table Centerpiece

For a Halloween centerpiece, colour is important. Orange, black and purple are traditional Halloween colours and will instantly tell people what your theme is. White is also a great colour to use. Here are some ideas for you to try:

Using empty jars, fill them with stretched out cotton wool. Place a large plastic spider on the inside of each jar, between the glass and the cotton wool.

Cut out a few black bat shapes using black cardboard. Gather some twigs and sticks. Glue the bats onto the sticks and place them into a tall glass vase.

Did someone say candy? Grab some large glass jars or vases. Layer them with a collection of Halloween themed lollies and place along the length of the table.

Building Centerpieces for a Wedding

Depending on the theme of your wedding, you can have some fun with these centerpieces. How about trying one of these ideas:

Gather some large low sided bowls. Fill with water and float your favourite flowers and floating candles inside. You could even use a footed serving bowl for added height.

For a rustic wedding centerpiece, you could build or use a small crate and fill it with flowers. You can find the instructions to make this wedding centerpiece here.

Christmas Themed Table Centerpieces

If you’d like to learn how to create table centerpieces for Christmas, then Pinterest really is your friend! From pinecones wrapped in ribbon, to sparkly fairy light covered tables, there are plenty of ideas for the making! Here are two of my favourites:

Christmas tree napkins. Using a green napkin, fold it into a tree shape and place on each plate.

Large boxes wrapped in brown paper and ties with Christmas ribbons are quick and easy to make! Piling them onto each other looks highly effective.
