5 Steps to Personalize Centerpieces

Centerpieces are a great way to add your own personal touch to any of your get-togethers! Whether is it for a wedding, birthday party, anniversary, or another celebration; making your own is easier and more affordable than you might think!
  1. Choose a theme: The theme of your event can be determined by the event, the guest of honor, or even a color scheme that goes with the event. For a wedding, for example, you might want to choose a theme that reflects the couple's hobbies or interests.

  2. Choose your materials: Once you've decided on a theme, you can select the materials you'll need to make your centerpieces. Vases or jars, flowers, candles, ribbons, or other decorative items may be included. For my nieces wedding, we asked everyone important to her for extra unused vases for eclectic but sentimental centerpieces for her tables.

  3. Plan your design: Before you begin assembling your centerpieces, sketch out your design. You can create a mood board with pictures and inspiration or sketch out a rough idea of what you want your centerpieces to look like.

  4. Assemble your centerpieces: Once you've decided on your materials and design, begin assembling your centerpieces. Arranging flowers in vases or jars, tying ribbons around candles, or adding other decorative elements. Always have your centerpieces as complete as you can before the day of the event to avoid last minute stress! I always do a test run with pictures long before the big day so I have everything I need!

  5. Consider adding a personal touch, such as a photo or a message, to make your centerpieces truly personalized. Include a small picture of the person or people being honored, or make a tag with a special message or quote. We have used laser cut hearts, initials, and photos to help make our centerpieces special. For my wedding we used small pictures of us when we were children for a fun personal touch! 

Following these steps, you too can create beautiful, personalized centerpieces that will add a special touch to any occasion!
