The centerpiece reunites long-lost friends and lights the journey of building new friendships out of mutual acquaintances. The table centerpieces of the wedding reception are meaningful to your guests and, therefore, essential. Check out our top 5centerpieces every wedding should feature.. - OXO


1. Classic Vase Arrangement

This classic table arrangement has served as a staple for centuries, dating back to Ancient Egypt. According to design preferences, types of flowers and greenery can vary in shape and size. The vases also may vary in shape and size. Placing these arrangements as central focal points on tables, round or square, small or large, can vary; eitherway, this centerpiece is the most versatile for any wedding theme and design.


2. Table Garland Arrangement

Since Ancient Greece, the table garland arrangement has been dawning on tabletops at celebratory events. It continues to evolve into what is now a trendy bridal bouquet. (See Bouquet Styles). The style, shape, and size may vary based on design preferences. For instance, there are options for a classic garland with greenery, or it can have flowers all throughout. Although garlands can showcase on any size table in any wedding theme, garlands are great for a warm family catering style with encouragement for conversation.


3. Table Wreath Arrangement

The table wreath has also been around for centuries, even dating back to as far as Ancient Rome. The table wreath style is diverse in style, especially when adding fruit or flowers to the foundational greenery. The types of tables may also vary in size in shape with table wreaths. Accessories such as lamps, candles, monograms, table numbers, etc., can be featured within the center of the wreath. Table wreaths are best for all wedding styles.


4. Floating Flowers Arrangement

Floating flowers are a recent trend that has emerged within the last century. With elongated glass cylinders, usually, single flower stems are placed into the vases traditionally topped with a small candle floating onto a filled vase of water. This combination of materials and elements of fire-lit candles and water emersion creates a floating appearance. Flowers such as roses, dahlias, lilies, and more can serve best with these designs. Similar to most centerpieces, this contemporary design can be paired with tables of all sorts of sizes and shapes. For optimal results, this design is best for an indoor, dimly venue.


5. Spray Table Arrangement

The spray table arrangement has been popularized since the Victorian era. This table arrangement derives from the style of the floral garland and has evolved with an expansion of blooms and greenery. Due to its size, the centerpiece style can be featured on larger tables of different shapes, round, and square. Most often, the spray arrangement centerpiece is emphasized on the bride and groom's sweetheart table or dessert tables. All wedding themes are great for this universal table centerpiece.
