Select the type of vase you wish to use for your centerpiece. Clear vases allow people to see inside, creating opportunities for different filling types. Metal vases in copper or gold lend an old-world appeal to your centerpiece. Silver vases help create a minimalist, chic centerpiece vibe!
Select your filling for the vase. Flowers are a traditional filler for vases. You can also use items like colored glass marbles, Christmas ornaments, Easter eggs, raffia, shiny pebbles or even floating candles in water if the vase is clear. Base the fillings to match the decor you're going for. For example, if you have a beach theme, you can fill the vases with small seashells or sea glass.
Place your vase on top of something such as a table runner or decorative piece of cloth. Use cloth that's in a similar color family to the flowers or other items in the vase for a matching effect. The material also serves as a protective buffer between the table and the vase, absorbing any potential spills if water is involved.
Add other items into the table centerpiece that are smaller than the vase, turning it into the focal point of the decoration. Ideas include small scented candles, ribbons, branches, glass figurines, fruits or anything that fits into the theme of the table. Arrange these items in a decorative fashion around the vase.
