Lush and Full Centerpieces- What we’re seeing for 2016

Centerpiece trends change year to year for weddings and events.  This event season, we are seeing a departure from tall centerpieces for guest tables.  For a number of years, we saw a lot of half tall and half low centerpieces layouts, but for 2016 many of our clients are opting for low centerpieces.  Whether it’s for long tables or round tables, the popularity of large, full, and lush centerpieces has been trumping the extremely popular tall designs.  It’s not always for budgetary reasons either.  The trend we have seen in table design is for very detailed, textured, and intricate designs with large footprints that rival the grandeur of the elaborate, tall arrangements.

Here are some of our examples of low, full pieces for guest tables.  We provided these designs for an event at the Crowne Plaza last summer.  The vibrant color scheme used purples, pinks, berry, and blues with mixed gold and silver mercury.  We created two different, but coordinating designs for the tables.  Images by Kelly Park Photography.

This low design in a clear footed vessel incorporated taller floating candles for some added warmth.

This coordinating centerpiece is elevated in a silver compote with low pillar candlelight.

The look of all low centerpieces can be a showstopper for your next celebration.

Thanks to Divine Events for coordinating this event!
