Centerpiece Trends to Look for in 2013

The Bell Jar (also known as a Cloche)

These are great because they can be filled with almost anything. Flowers, little scenes, vintage items, photos. They can be modern or vintage, sparse of full. The one downside is they can be a little expensive. I would recommend doing 1 for every 3 tables, so as to not over do it. You can find these in lots of cute shops, but the best prices I have found are Save-on-Crafts.

Trophies

I love vintage trophies and awards! They can be kind of tricky to find, and are definitely NOT cheap. Check out antique stores, Etsy, and Ebay, but be prepared to spend $35-$65 on each one. You can always re sell them after your wedding too.

Animals

Plastic Animals + Spray Paint = Trend of the year. It’s fun, modern, and can be super cute if done right. Collect all kinds of animals at thrift stores and spray them gold, white, or silver for super cute place cards and centerpieces.

Cement

Ok ok, this one may be a stretch, but for an ultra modern, dessert wedding outside, I love it! Using cinder-blocks is pretty cool too. Obviously quite heavy, but pretty cheap if you know what you are doing.

Ombre

Ombre is the one trend I predict will carry its way into 2013 gracefully. I love a subtle ombre flower arrangement, Ombre vases, and ombre fabrics at your wedding table.

Ribbons and Trophies

There are a few awesome Theme Weddings floating around the internet. One of them is a 4H theme, and the other is a County Fair theme. They are both sooo cute. One thing they both do, that I love, is the use of Award Ribbons, and Vintage Trophies! You can find tons of these at Goodwill and garage sales. I especially LOVE the idea of spray painting lots of different trophies the same bright colors like this. They would make such cool centerpieces. Ribbons are also really cute as Boutonnieres, and a fun thing for family members to wear. There is also this awesome website that makes custom printed ribbons, I wish I had a reason to make these! (click photos for source)

This wedding is amazing!

XOXO
