Long, rectangular reception tables are transformed into a breathtaking river of candles with this wedding centerpiece idea created with votives and floating candles. The look is visually captivating, yet when you break it down it is so simple in its design and execution.
Rectangular reception tables, covered with white table covers bearing a silver grid pattern, are pushed together, end to end, to create exceedingly long linear tables.
Up the center, pedestaled clear glass centerpiece bowls are placed every two to three place settings apart on square centerpiece platforms made from plain wood which is wrapped around the sides in light colored fabric.
Then the bowls are simply filled with water and 5 white floating candles are added along with several lily blooms, sufficient to fill the bowl.
What really creates the drama for this design is the abundance of white votive candles is clear glass holders that run the length of the tables, up the center, weaving their way around and between the bowls, and bathing the tables in the warm glow of candle light. The votive candles serve to tie all of the centerpiece bowls together, creating perfect cohesiveness.
Purple flowers are placed around the pedestal of the bowl, entirely covering the top of the square centerpiece platform. Then five lily blooms are scattered on top of the purple flowers for additional visual interest.
One of the keys to what really makes this centerpiece design powerful is the manner in which candle light is displayed at two different heights, combining candlelight from the votives on the tables, with the higher level of candle light provided by the floating candles in the pedestal bowls on platforms.
Consider these expert tricks and techniques when coming up with the design for your wedding wedding centerpieces.
