Types of Centerpieces for Your Next Event


Whether you're hosting an intimate dinner party or throwing a dance party for your best friends, centerpieces are the perfect way to set the tone for any event. Whether you want something simple and elegant or bold and modern, there's a centerpiece for every style. In this blog post, we'll share some ideas for finding the perfect centerpiece to complement your next meal or party.

Floating candles

Floating candles are a great way to add light to your event. They can be used as centerpieces, table decorations, or even mantle decorations. Floating candles also make great outdoor table centerpieces. You can find candles in many different sizes and styles including pillar style, votive style, and tea light style!

Floral arrangements

Floral arrangements are the most popular option for centerpieces. The possibilities are endless, as they come in a wide range of styles and sizes. They can be used to complement almost any event theme. Floral arrangements can be made with or without vases—some people prefer to use baskets or other containers instead of floral vases because they have more flexibility when it comes to choosing flowers.

Flower arrangements themselves vary tremendously depending on the type of flowers used; some arrangements may feature only one color while others may have three or four or even six to seven different colors working together harmoniously. You could also incorporate other natural materials such as twigs or leaves into the mix!

Another way to create unique centerpiece designs is by using tall plants like palm trees which will give off their own ambiance.


Vases are a versatile way to make your centerpiece stand out. They can be used to hold flowers, candles, fruit and other food, or lights. You could even put them in the center of the table or set them up through the room. When you have vases available at your next event, they will allow you to create almost any centerpiece in this list!


Balloons are a great way to add color and texture to your event. Balloons can be used as centerpieces, but they can also serve as decorative items that sit on tables or in corners of the room. If you're looking for a simple centerpiece, balloons are a great choice. Alternatively, if you want something more elaborate or want to tie in some theme elements into your decorating scheme (think: balloons with polka dots or balloons with flowers), try tying them up with ribbon or stringing them up from the ceiling.

Floral runner

A floral runner is a long strip of flowers and foliage, usually placed along a table or on the floor. You can use it as a backdrop for photos, or place other decorations on top of it like candles or fruit.


If you want your flower arrangement to stand out from others at an event, consider adding fruit such as apples or pineapples. Fruit is a great way to decorate a table, as well as serve as an edible centerpiece for your next special event. Apples, pears, bananas and oranges can all be used in this way. They're versatile enough to be used for any occasion—whether it's a wedding or just a dinner party with friends.

If you're planning an outdoor party where food might get dropped on the ground (such as at a picnic), consider using fruit that's easy to clean off of clothing and shoes: lemons or limes, for example, work well!


Lights are a great way to set the mood for an event. While you can use lights to highlight your centerpiece, you can also use them to create a focal point. You could even create a backdrop for photos or videos by placing them around the entire room. Lights are helpful because they're also very versatile!

Centerpieces can help set the theme for your event.

Centerpieces can help set the theme for your event. They can be used to decorate a table or buffet, a room, a wall, or even a bar. You can use them as part of your decorations and make them the attention of any party.

Centerpieces do not only have to be placed at the center of guests' table; you can place them anywhere as long as it fits into your theme or design. There are many ways that you can use centerpieces like placing them on top of bookshelves and cabinets or even hanging them from ceilings with ribbons and wires if you want to give them some height!

When planning your next event, consider whether you want it to be formal or casual. Consider what colors you’re using and if they will complement each other well enough. Think about how many people will be attending, because that can affect what kinds of things will work best as centerpieces of all different sizes (from small groups to large ones). You should also think about the theme of your party—if it's going to be summer-themed or something else entirely!
