The centerpiece, one of my favorite parts of a wedding. My last wedding blog post was some of my favorite table settings on long or rectangular tables. Today I am going to share some of my favorite ones through the years used on round tables. Circular table are different than the longer ones in that usually you need something a little fuller. There is more space to fill in the center. Here are some of my favorites in no order!
Let's start with Susan's centerpieces. She had 2 different ones, which is common and something I love when couple's do. I love tree's and candles, both inspirations for these centerpieces. Mowrer's Flowers knocked it out of the park with the final products below. Pictures from Liz and Ryan.
Chrissy and Jeff also had a couple of options and both were lovely for their spring country vineyard wedding. They had a beautiful lantern and these tall candelabra's decorated with flowers. The overall look with the lace overlay, burlap runner, and gold chargers really completed the look. Pictures from Tera Nelson and flowers by Susan's Floral Art.
Greg and Sharron, love to travel; something I can appreciate. Each table was named after destinations they have visited. The centerpieces were all different focused around that location, with pictures they took on those trips. Places such as San Francisco, St. Louis, New York, and London. The two below were two of my favorites. A Mardi Gras inspired on for New Orleans, and then Iceland. If you ever read this blog, you know my love of Iceland! When you go there are sheep everywhere, and we learned they are their own unique breed in that country. Pictures taken by me that day.
Fall weddings are beautiful from the point you have all that vibrant outdoor foliage. Lindsay and John brought in those same bright colors to these stunning centerpieces created by Daniel Vaughn Designs. The lanterns perfect for fall, and loved the wood bark covering on the containers of the other ones. All also using candles to bring in that warmth of the Autumn season.
Next up instead of a traditional round table, we have round wine barrel tables provided from Weir Event Rentals. They were decorated with a mix match of containers, candles, stones, and eclectic pieces this bride found from all around.
In my long table post I mentioned Kim's long tables but that she had a combination with rounds. The round tables were equally as impressive. I loved the mix match bottles and flowers from Daniel Vaugh Designs. Though it may be hard to see here, the finishing touches of a napkin with menu card, and a sprig of lavender, were a welcoming touch to the guests as they sat down for this spring wedding.

I love succulents. I have successfully managed to kill a few over the years, but still I try. I think its the combination of colors you can get from them. Some are just green, but some also have shades that can vary to pinks, purples, or blues. I thought these handmade succulent centerpieces created by the couple were a nice way to display these flowers. Not to mention an affordable option. Photo from Tera Nelson.
It's always fun when friends get married and we had a blast at Ryanne and Isaac's wedding a few years ago. For centerpieces, Lisa from Woodrings went to a thrift store and found these adorable vintage bottles. She filled lots of flowers that had a nice variety of colors and textures.
I have to admit, I am not a super big fan of silk flowers. However, Elena convinced me they could be done well for her wedding. The tall pieces had a vintage touch that worked well with the rest of her table setting. I especially loved the pearl napkin rings! Photo from J&A Photography.
Fruit in centerpieces is a great trend. I love that Rose incorporated peaches into her design with these colorful flowers.
Another show stopper was what Daniel Vaughn Designs created for this amazing wedding. Whitney and Anthony wanted to incorporate an woods and outdoorsy feel to their wedding. Yet still keep it elegant. He did a combination of high and low pieces. Some like trees, some seemed to be wood inspired creations. No two exactly alike but all together stunning. Picture by me on my phone probably don't do these all justice!
Last but not least Jonelle and Zach's wedding is perfect for those who want a Penn State bash. Of course the table linens were blue but love that she added a chevron blue and white runner. The centerpieces were a lantern and some flowers. The tables were named after bars and restaurants in downtown State College. They got the wooden plaques for the names as well as you can tell from the picture below from Tera Nelson. At each place setting for guests was a tailgate CD they could take home as well as a delicious blue and white cookie. The backs of the chairs had pom-poms for guests to waive when then couple was announced at the reception.
