1. Bud Vases
Cute little bud vases like these are essential for creating centerpieces.
You can line them down the middle of a rectangular table or cluster them together on a circular table. Or you can use one on a tray with other items.
Plus, bud vases are awesome for extending the life of a large floral bouquet. Use them for those single blooms that last longer than the rest of the flowers.
2. Rattan Bowl
Bowls are essential for creating stunning centerpieces. There’s something special about this rattan bowl. It makes for a beautiful centerpiece.
Just line it with a pretty napkin and add rolls, or a bunch of lemons. Or fill it with seasonal decor. Like Easter eggs, gourds, moss balls, or ornaments.
You can use it all year!
3. Candle Holders
Pretty candle holders are a must for most centerpieces. Whether they’re lit or not.
With taper candlesticks, you can cluster them or line them down the middle of your table. You can surround them with faux greenery, or let them shine on their own.
Using 1, 3, or 7, candle holders will set the mood on your table.
Don’t you just love the delicateness of these candle holders? They’re timeless.
4. Octagon Wood Trays
I absolutely LOVE the shape of these trays! They’re just unique enough, but not too out-there.
When creating a centerpiece, a wood tray is always a go-to piece. And this octagon shape will work fabulously on any table, whether you have a square, rectangular, or circular table.
5. Dough Bowl
You might think a dough bowl isn’t your style, but it can be used in just about any style centerpiece. From farmhouse to modern minimal design.
It’s wonderfully versatile and can contain a lot of decor pieces. Meaning ~ put everything inside of it and then pick up your styled centerpiece and move it off the table and onto a counter.
Plus dough bowls come in a variety of lengths and wood colors.
6. Mason Jars
Mason jars are fabulous for styling a centerpiece.
You can use them as vases, drinking glasses, candle holders, or utensil holders. And they’re fantastic for decorating to match your tablescape. Either paint them, decoupage them, or leave them alone.
If you’re not a fan of the traditional Ball jars, you can find plain ones online, too.
7. White Pitcher
You need a classic white pitcher in your centerpiece stash.
Depending on your style, it can be sleek and modern, or rustic and chunky.
The look doesn’t matter, so much as the function.
A beautiful pitcher looks amazing in the middle of your table with drinking glasses around it, or fill it with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. You’ll use it more often than you think.
8. Metal Tray
If you don’t have one, add a metal tray to your list of centerpiece essentials.
Pick the metal that works best with your style and dining room decor.
Whether it’s gold, silver, or rod iron, a metal tray can be used year-round. Plus it’s easy to dress up or dress down, depending on the centerpiece you’re creating.
There you have it – 8 essential items to use for a centerpiece. With creativity and planning, you can utilize these pieces to style an incredible centerpiece
