Food Inspired Centerpieces ?
According to “The Knot” Webinar that I participated in last week – there is another trend on the wedding radar! And it’s — are you ready for this? Food inspired centerpieces! While I think the above photo has an interesting look…I’m not sure I’d like it on the head table at my wedding, or at that of my daughters’ either. I think sometimes people want to be different, and don’t know how to do it, so they take a step out there, and sometimes that step is just a little too far.
Ok…I could see incorporating some gorgeous macaroons as a focal point/centerpiece like the ones above at a wedding, or better yet, a shower. I just love the colors. They scream spring, and the covered teacups lend a festive air.
Ditto the above photo. I think this table setting would be perfection for a bridesmaids’ luncheon. The palate mixture of the pink flowers and tangerines is lovely. Good enough to eat! Maybe “The Knot” DOES know what they’re talking about…
And this bouquet of cupcakes? I love it! I see this as a gorgeous small table, (say 4-8), centerpiece at a bridal shower. Then have them do double duty as prizes for games played at said shower! I know I’d love to win such a gift.
And the lavish display of apples? Perfect for a casual outdoor wedding or bridal brunch. I think overall, there is a niche for food as a focal point or centerpiece, but it is best placed in a casual or outdoor setting. Back to nature and all that… If you choose to go this route at a wedding event, make sure you get some good patterns from a site like pinterest or google images.
