Incorporating food into your table centerpiece is a unique way to dress up a standard bouquet or add a special touch to a holiday meal. Here are fifteen unique ideas for incorporating food into your next table centerpiece!
One of the most common ways to incorporate food into a centerpiece is lining your flower vase. This covers the stems of your bouquet and adds visual interest. Sliced citrus adds a bright touch to spring and summer centerpieces, while cranberries and lentils give a more homey, holiday feel.
You can also incorporate food items into the bouquet itself. An autumn flower arrangement can host mini pumpkins and gourds, fruit adds a special touch to a bouquet, and my personal favorite are artichoke arrangements!
As an alternative to using flowers in your centerpiece consider using candles surrounded by lentils, berries, or even herbs! Just be sure that the materials you use are not flammable or use flameless candles.
If you are decorating a holiday table add a touch of whimsy with seasonal candies, or go the traditional route with a Thanksgiving cornucopia.
Are you artistic? Showcase beautifully decorated cupcakes in a cupcake stand as your centerpiece or take on the challenge of learning to carve flowers from fruits like apples or cantaloupes!
I hope you are as inspired as I am to add a bit of the unexpected to your next centerpiece! Which of these amazing centerpieces was your favorite?
