Vases and Centerpieces

Vases are one of the most popular ways to decorate the guest’s tables. Choosing smaller vases usually cuts the price in half or more compared to high vases.

However, if you like the gracious look and visual effect of a tall centerpiece you can still find good deals online. A large centerpiece can be bought in packs of 10 and sometimes more.

As you know, outdoor weddings are exposed to the elements. Therefore if you want to choose a high centerpiece like Eiffel tower style vase to make sure the tables are protected from the wind.

This vase is very narrow and therefore will fall at the first blast of wind. To avoid such mess choose vas that has a wider and heavier base.

Burlap Coasters, Cutlery Holder, and Table Runners

Definitely, the most popular material used to make all sorts of rustic or country wedding theme decor items.

Whether you’re looking for table runners and cutlery holders you will find many different styles at all kinds of prices. Usually, the ones that have lace detailing are more expensive.

Since burlap isn’t an expensive material, adding the lace, tulle, and ribbons yourself is a cheaper option.

This is especially true for large elements like table runners which you can buy it by the meter. Some merchants also sell them plain so you can decorate them as you like.

Fortunately, burlap table runners are at a discounted price quite often online so make sure you have a look once in while to get the best price.
