Are you planning a fall wedding and need some reception centerpiece ideas that take advantage of all the season has to offer? Fall is associated with harvest time and warm, rich colors so make sure to use them to your advantage. (Remember how I said before that Orange is the color for weddings this season?) Most reception halls are already decorated, so your wedding centerpieces are the most effective way to customize the decor to your liking. Make the most of this opportunity!
Here are a few ideas...
For a relaxed atmosphere, use baskets filled with seasonal fruits such as apples. A mix of red, yellow, and green apples is stunning, or use just one color that will complement your bridal party colors. The smell of the apples will be better than scented candles and less offensive to those with allergies. The type of basket you choose will also determine how casual or elegant your centerpieces look.
Here's another apple idea....fill a glass bowl with clear decorative stones with an apple nestled in amongst them. Hollow out a space in the top of an apple for a tea light. You'll have the yummy smell of fresh apples as well as some soft mood lighting for your reception, all in one easy to take home bowl.
Want flowers? Use terra cotta pots with chrysanthemums of one or a variety of colors. Tie a ribbon around the pots and you're done.
Or fill a vase with a mixture of dried wheat, daisies, and small roses for a stunning Fall flower arrangement. Try different versions of this arrangement out at home beforehand to find out what colors and mixtures you prefer.
You could also place candles of varying heights on a mirrored plate with colorful stones sprinkled around them. Use warm fall colors such as red, orange, yellow or brown.
Mix and match these ideas to suit your personalities and the atmosphere you want for your reception. Fall is a great season and an exciting time to get married, just remember Have Fun....and Enjoy It!
