Homemade wedding centerpiece ideas can save you lots of money when you are planning a wedding on a budget. The wedding reception is something everyone looks forward to, so you want the reception to be a fun time for all. Usually, food is served and tables are decorated at receptions. One of the fun things to do when you plan the reception is to make your own homemade wedding centerpieces. They can match your flowers and colors of your wedding or you can come up with a theme.
Here are some homemade wedding centerpiece ideas for you to consider.
o Centerpieces you can eat
These will have to be purchased and made the day before the wedding, but it is possible. These can be so much fun and people will enjoy them. You should use fruits that don’t require silverware. Fruits that would be good are apples, grapes, peaches, pears, or plums. Put these fruits in a basket with a bowl on top or on a decorated plate.
Balloons may not be homemade, but you can still come up with homemade wedding centerpiece ideas using balloons. One way is to purchase two to four balloons for each table. They should match the colors of your wedding. Then use balloon weights that you can purchase at the balloon shop to keep them on the table. If you don’t want to purchase the balloon weights, you can make them yourself.
Confetti is always fun and is another classic when it comes to homemade wedding centerpiece ideas. You can do a lot with it. There are bags you can purchase that have confetti specifically for weddings. They usually contain bells, hearts, and flowers. Use table clothes that are either white or ones that match your wedding colors. Then sprinkle the confetti on the table cloth randomly. Then place disposable cameras on each table so your guests can take pictures of your reception.
