Cylinder Wedding Centerpieces Look Stunning!
Cylinder wedding centerpieces create a powerful visual punch through the use of color, in this case, bright pink. DIY cylinder centerpieces are super-easy to create, and with the right use of color and other decorative elements, they’ll look spectacular on each table. You can display cylinder centerpieces one at a time, or cluster them in groups. Groups of three usually look best if you are going to cluster them, but you can play around with different options.
There are so many styling options to choose from when designing cylinder wedding centerpieces – the design ideas are really limited only by your own imagination. Consider using river rock, clear acrylic stones, or colored acrylic stones at the bottom of the cylinder vase for added visual interest – or you can leave the bottom bare, whichever you prefer.
You can also combine the use of cylinder vases featuring floating candles with votive candles scattered around the cylinder vases on the tables if you want extra ambience from the warm glow of candle light.
In the photo shown above, hot pink votive candle holders were selected to coordinate perfectly with the hot pink orchids in the cylinder vases. If you can’t find votive candle holders in the color you desire, you can make them using a plain clear glass votive candle holder; then simply cut either tissue paper or sheer fabric (like organza for instance) to the correct size ad wrap around the votive candle holder, and use a few tiny dabs of hot glue to secure into place.
Here’s How to DIY This Design:
Three stemmed cylinder vases of varied heights are clustered at the center of the reception table. A few inches worth of clear decorative rocks are placed at the bottom of each vase. One stem of bright pink orchids is inserted into the decorative rocks at the bottom of each vase, then simply add water to within a few inches of the mouth of the vase, toss in a round floating candle (in this case white) and the look is nearly complete… [Photo Credit: One Atlantic Events]
Finish off with a few votive candles in colored glass holders to match the color of the orchids, and scatter the table with a few (do not overdo!) rose petals in a coordinating or matching color, and you’ve got yourself some stunning wedding table centerpieces.
If you can’t find votive holders in the color you want, here’s an easy fix: Just buy plain, clear class cylindrical votive holders and, using craft glue, carefully wrap the holder with tissue paper in your chosen color and glue into place. When you light the votive candle, the candle holder will light up and glow with color; it’ll look just like colored glass.
When the whole thing is put together, these centerpieces look absolutely amazing, but as you can see, are not that difficult to do. Go DIY!
Here’s a Another Version of the Cylinder Centerpiece Idea
In this version of the cylinder centerpiece design, the cylinders don’t have a pedestal on them. They are sleek, simple and elegant, yet really stunning. Groups of three look fantastic, as shown in the photo. Simply push one long stemmed tulip into each vase, as shown, before filling with water (you can use either a fresh or silk tulip – either way works fine). Then place a white floating candle into the water at the top of each vase. Scatter flower petals around the base of the vases on the table. Et volia! You have completely replicated the look!
