The most beautiful and meaningful centerpieces don’t have to be expensive. Whether you are planning a bridal shower, wedding, baby shower, baptism or any other event, consider incorporating photos into your centerpieces. Here are some great examples:
1. Floral Centerpiece with Table Numbers by Manarae. – Flowers are always a beautiful centerpiece, but this ingenious woman used them as table numbers. The best part of them is the photos that were used including baby and current photos. If you are planning a wedding it would be a wonderful idea to use baby pictures of the bride and groom. This would also be fun for a baby shower, not to mention a great way to include the father-to-be. If you are hosting a bridal shower, a photo of the bride during different stages of her life featured in a floral centerpiece would be a great conversation piece. Include a different photo in each centerpiece for added variety. A variety of colorful flowers within a clear vase tied with a ribbon finishes the centerpieces nicely.

3. Framed Photo: You don’t have to be crafty to use this centerpiece idea. It is a simple floral arrangement with a framed engagement photo of the bride and groom. I have seen this used for baptism parties. A variety of framed baby pictures are displayed on each table, maybe one or a grouping. Since the baby is the guest of honor, it is a great way to not only brighten the tables, but honor him or her.

3. Mug Favor Centerpieces – This has to be one of the most creative ideas I have seen. Monica of The Yummy Life made these great centerpieces using mugs. You will have to check out her tutorial to get step by step instructions about how to make them. When I saw the finished product, I wasn’t sure if I could tackle this project, but the directions with photos were very clear. I also realized that I could use one or two ideas and still have a wonderful creation.
Here is what I love about these beauties created for a rehearsal dinner party. *Monica found engraved mugs as the base and used the centerpieces as a generous guest favor. You could probably use a glass vase or other glass item that you think would be appreciated by guests.
*Photos of the future bride and groom are incorporated on small hearts and on a printed card announcing the celebration.
