Must Your Centerpieces Match?

Must your centerpieces match?  I always thought so, being more or a “Matchy-Match typer of person” (limited originality from me!), …but then when we attended Jennifer and Fred’s wedding last Sunday, it became apparent to me that, no they don’t.  Look at all the variety of arrangements in the following photos.  Yes, they color scheme was the same, shades of blue, and the flowers all hydrangeas, but they were all different.

The guest tables all had centerpieces like the following photos below.  The were similar, but different – sometimes subtlety.  Some sported just blue hydrangeas, some blue and white.  The all had the beautiful blue vases, but not all the shapes were the same.  And while all had a “Starfish” somewhere on the table, the location varied of that too.  One centerpiece even had the sea creature in the blooms.


Some vases were dressed with twine, others, a wire cage housed the arrangement.  The blue and white theme was always upheld, however.  And the bridesmaid dresses…well let’s just say they were my favorite shade of blue.  Next post will return to daughter KK and Tyler’s day, but I’m not done with this wedding.  Too many lovely ideas to share!

One thought on “Must Your Centerpieces Match?

  1. The eclectic really worked well and the uniformity was with the flowers that filled the variety of vessels. It added some interest to the tables and various stations in the maritime museum.
