Top 10 Wedding Table Centerpieces in 2020

Here are the top 10 wedding table centerpiece inspirational ideas in 2020. We have also found the base décor to help put together the wedding setting look. They range from table runners to geometric shapes to mirrored centerpieces. And all of them are handmade too.

1. The Light as Air Table Runner:

Dig around your grandmother’s attic to see if there is any crockery and glassware that you can use for your wedding. She will absolutely be thrilled that you are bringing these items back to life. Or, you can also dig around at your local thrift store. It doesn’t matter at all if the crockery and glassware are mismatched, it will only add to the rustic, vintage charm. The perfect base for this wedding centerpiece look is a hand dyed table runner, as seen below. Then all you need is some small vases, the more mismatched the better, that you can fill with blooms and greenery.

And here is the table runner above:

This is the actual table runner that is pictured in the table setting above. It is hand ripped to achieve its raw, farm-chic, edges and also hand dyed.

2. The Geometric:

As pinterest is all about long tables for weddings at the moment. It is truly refreshing to find wedding table centerpieces that would work incredibly with round tables too. This geometric centerpiece works well as it adds some futher interest and rustic charm to a centerpiece that would otherwise just be greenery and a touch of florals. Especially if you are using a lot of greenery and less flowers, this brass colored centerpiece would be a welcomed addition to the wedding table décor.

And here, you can find a brass triangle:

This is the first handmade brass triangle that would work with this design. They are custom made so you can ask the maker for any size and to remove the hoop at the top of the design.

And here, a larger version of the brass triangle:

If you want something larger, this handmade brass triangle would work for you. We love how the material on this centerpiece is even hand bent. So no two are ever exactly the same.

3. The Mirrored Image:

A mirrored centerpiece with some modern additions really make for a charming centerpiece. Start early to collect brown upcycled bottles from friends and family. Then as the neck of the bottles are small, it will be easy to fill them with branches of eucalyptus. The all you need is a couple of tea light candles and table numbers, if you wish, and you have an easy yet attractive wedding table centerpiece.

Here you can find the mirror base:

This mirror centerpiece base when paired with the right upcycled goodies and some eucalyptus greenery look just charming.

4. The Wood Rounds:

What a clever idea for a rustic wedding and you can easily recreate it. Below are the perfect wood rounds that can be purchased online. Then all that is required is some upcycled jars and bottles. Wrap some of the jars in twine. Use the lower jars for tea light candles, the the medium jars for one stem of rose and some baby’s breath. Then the taller bottles (with not so huge openings) for a small bunch of roses paired with some voluminous baby’s breath.

5. The Boho Macrame:

We love seeing weddings that take the non-traditional and turn it into something clever and inspiring like this table centerpiece. It is put together with a base of a handmade macramé, then overlaid with some tropical oversized leaves, greenery and a couple of roses. Some upcycled glasses for tealight candles are then scattered. The result? Rustic charm!

6. The Cheesecloth:

To adorn this hand-dyed table runner, get your friends and family onboard for this one and have them create garlands from the freshest eucalyptus you can find from the flower market. Order ahead so you don’t have any surprises. This is probably one of the simplest table centerpieces we have seen, but one of the most effective. Single candles are then placed on candle holders and voila!

Here is the above hand-dyed table runner:

This table runner is the exact table runner that is seen in the table setting above and doesn’t it just break hearts?!

7. The Stonewashed:

If you have ever felt stonewashed linen then you will know that it feels like it will melt in your palms. So incredibly soft! This linen based wedding table centerpiece is so simple, yet elegant. You just needs strings of greenery that are intertwined between saucers that are holding white pillar candles. You can have some large water glasses holding some of the medium white pillar candles too. Easy yet impactful.

What is more beautiful than flowers found in the field? Not much really, and this table setting celebrates that. The field flowers are just laid casually on the table. It is teamed with a hand-tied, hand dyed napkin. Wow, that is really all you need!

And what better hue than the lightest of blush? It is elegant and timeless in photography too. You can opt to also have hand torn menus and/or place cards.
