INSPIRATION: DIY Low Budget Table Centerpiece

DIY Low Budget Wedding Centerpiece Table IdeaI’m talkingĀ really affordable…like less than $10. We picked up a white oval serving dish from T.J.Maxx for around $5, put a brick or two of water-soaked floral foam in there, and then walked around outside with clippers and just arranged foliage as though it were flowers. Its a nice, simple way of incorporating nature into a variety of aesthetics (just change up the container and table decor)–especially for those having a wedding on a tight budget and/or all those who have written us saying they want an outdoorsy wedding but are having everything inside. Just look for a variety of leaf sizes and shapes. And I’d recommend doing a test run to learn which greenery will hold up for several hours (some will wilt quickly even in floral foam).

    I love this! I was thinking of the same idea for a garden party I’m planning but hadn’t thought it through yet. Of course floral foam is a fantastic idea!

    I love this idea! Unfortunately, I think if I tried to walk around my NYC neighborhood snipping trees and bushes I’d be issued a ticket.
