Preppy Wedding Centerpieces(Hand Blown Glass Vases)

Hand Blown Glass Vases

The classic good looks of preppy style are a perennial favorite with brides. You can't go wrong with the charming colors and lines that characterize this timeless lifestyle. These are some great ideas for preppy centerpieces for your wedding reception.

When you think of preppy style, the first thing that comes to mind is pink and green. This is definitely an excellent option for the colors of your centerpieces. The pink and green can be the foundation of your flower choices, or you can use it for the vessels. Or maybe even both! There are many wonderful flowers available in shades of pink and green. Probably the preppiest combination would be green hydrangeas with pink peonies or garden roses. Another excellent option is pink ranunculus, which can even be found with a greenish center. It is a papery looking flower that combines marvelously with favorites like roses and peonies, or can also stand alone. For a more elaborate centerpiece, ask your florist about wiring a pearl into the center of some of the flowers to coordinate with your bridal jewelry.

Clever ideas for pink and green centerpiece vessels abound. You could do something as simple as tying a striped grosgrain ribbon around a cylindrical vase for an instant dash of preppy flair. For a more elegant wedding, seek out vases with a pink and green toile print (sometimes you find this design done on a galvanized bucket, which is an incredible combination of fancy and laid-back). Another idea would be to alternate pink vases and green vases filled to the brim with white flowers like roses or sweetpeas.

Certainly, every preppy woman adores the iconic look of the silver mint julep cup, and this would make a wonderful addition to a wedding centerpiece. There is just something so timeless about a bride in a white gown with pearl bridal jewelry that is perfect with the little silver cups. Instead of having one large centerpiece, place a mint julep cup at each place setting filled with wide open garden roses or peonies in shades of pink and white. To fill the middle of the table, think about a hurricane lantern with a large ivory pillar candle, or even a tiered stand of desserts. The hurricane lanterns are especially nice for outdoor weddings.

Another fantastic idea for preppy centerpieces is to arrange your flowers in monogrammed vessels. There are several ways in which this could be done. For a more subtle effect, tall glass vases with a wide mouth can be etched with a scrip monogram or initial. Fill with your favorite pink and green flowers. For a shabby chic beach wedding, what about handpainting beautiful tin pails with your monogram in a graceful design? It always looks great to add your own personal touch to store bought accessories.

Pink and green are not the only option for a preppy wedding centerpiece. The classic combination of Kelly green and navy could be a fun way to dress up your reception tables. Start with bouquets of white flowers, and place them in vases done in the green and navy palette. You can find beautiful hand blown glass pieces that combine your favorite colors, especially if you are having a small wedding and only need a handful of vases. Or for an all-out preppy look, paint simple containers in diagonal Kelly green and navy stripes to look like a classic mens' tie. It would be a fresh and interesting addition to any preppy wedding, and would be a great way to showcase your style.
