Over the past two years, I ve noticed
that modern brides are going for more
of an understated elegance regarding
their centrepiece decor.
They are also embracing the vintage
trend and making themes and memen-
tos of bygone eras (such as the 1950s,
60s and 70s) feature prominently on
their wedding day.
Some of the more popular center-
piece trends for 2014 were:
1. Baby s breath---This delicate flower
is no longer just relegated to a "filler."
Baby s breath or Gypsophilia adds an
airy, ethereal touch to your wedding
flowers, plus they have lasting power!
Baby s breath can be used:
• By itself in a centerpiece
• In a pomander, which can be sus-
pended above the table
• Twisted into a monogram that you
can lay on the table
• As a floral wreath that you can
place a pillar candle inside it
• The traditional way---interspersed
with other flowers.
2. The use of succulents/cacti and herbs
(think rosemary, mint and basil) in cen-
terpieces. Other trendy "green" accents
are moss and wheat grass.
3. Tablescapes---The use of multiple
arrangements, sometimes in varying
heights, in combination with candles
and accessories such as: pearls, antique
books, frames, birdcages, lanterns, crys-
tals, twigs, birds nests, terrariums, bark,
feathers, fruit, seashells and photos.
4. Do-it-yourself (DIY) flowers---There
has been an increase in the "non-
flower," ie, flowers that are handmade
from fabric, buttons, brooches, paper
(tissue, origami or collage), and even
5. Sparkle---Brides are embracing glitz
in their centrepieces by introducing
crystal drops and strands, and more
