3 Different Ways to Arrange a Dining Table Centerpiece
Below I show three different ways to arrange a centerpiece for your dining table, using the same six vases.
When I was talking to my mom about what to have as her Mother’s Day table centerpiece, she told me that it definitely needed to have flowers. Yay! I love working with flowers.
I decided that I didn’t want a single flower arrangement for the table’s centerpiece. So, instead, I made six small vases and created a flower arrangement for each vase. (to learn how to permanently tint glass vases, check out my post)
What’s fun about the six small vases, is that they can be used to create multiple centerpiece arrangements, each with a slightly different look.
Take a look and decide which dining table centerpiece arrangement you like best.
First Centerpiece Arrangement: 6 Vases in a Circle
The first centerpiece uses all six vases together. Put one vase smack in the middle of the table. Then create a ring around it with the other five vases. Place them close to the middle vase, so that the flowers are touching, and you can’t see the tablecloth from above. Then place tangerines between the vases, but just in front of them.
Second Centerpiece Arrangement: Two Sets of 3 Vases
For the second centerpiece arrangement, create two identical centerpieces with three vases each. Place the three vases in a triangle shape in the middle of two place settings, on one end of the table. Place the other three vases on the other side. Sprinkle the tangerines around the vases.
In this arrangement, the center of the table is bare. The two sides of the table are identical.
Third Centerpiece Arrangement: 6 Vases in a Row
To create the third arrangement, take the six vases and line them down the middle of your dining table. Put them close together and spaced equally apart, so that three are on one half of the table and three are on the other half. Then line tangerines up on each side of the vases.
Isn’t it interesting how just putting the vases in different configurations can change the look of the table? Give it a try and see which centerpiece arrangement you like best. I’d love to hear what you decide.
