Smaller can be better!

Happy Monday everyone! Though it is raining in the DC area today – it was a PERFECT day for a wedding this past Saturday. Clear, blue skies mixed with warm sunshine and happy couples everywhere!

Greenworks was apart of two wonderful weddings this past Saturday. The one I would like to share with you today had multiple small centerpiece. It is a trend that I have been seeing a lot lately for weddings.

At Le Meridien, in Arlington, VA, we alternated silver Julep cups with smaller silver mercury glass vases. It was perfect for a long table, but this also looks great on a round or square table.

We used a mix of spray roses, peonies, ranunculus, tulips, dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus in the Julep cups. The smaller vases held one single type of flower – shown above were some awesome variegated tulips white/pink – the others had spray roses in pale pink and peach and pink ranunculus.

From another wedding last weekend, we also used a smaller vase concept :

This concept was on a round table for 10 people. It worked out well because they had other ‘non floral’ elements to the centerpiece: books, picture frames, hand-made table names.

From a winter wedding, this bride selected vintage milk vases.

Smaller vases allow you to vary the height of vases and stem length and you can use the different shapes and styles for an eclectic look.

This is definitely a great look to consider for your wedding centerpieces – the options are endless!
