Although centerpieces make the party decorations attractive and interesting, they are expensive. So, to reconcile the expectations with expenditures, here are a few cheap centerpiece ideas you can use.
Funding a wedding ceremony can make an irreparable hole in your pocket. A 'cheap wedding' may seem like an oxymoron to you. However, if you plan well, you may save a few bucks for a much worthy moment. The little things that make the wedding scene look picture perfect can make or break your wedding budget, for instance, wedding centerpieces.

Instead you can save this amount and spend it on your wedding dress or your honeymoon shopping budget. The food and the occasion is something you'd want to spend more on, than a few exorbitant centerpieces. So, let's take a look at a frugal ideas that can save the day and a some pennies.

Floral Centerpieces

The best way of saving on floral centerpieces is to go with seasonal flowers. Buy a few pots (plastic or glass, depending on your budget) and cover them with moss or ivy. Add a few small white roses to it et voila, your centerpiece is ready!
Such centerpieces are easy to make, good to look at, and inexpensive! What more can you ask for?

Candles as Centerpieces

Bring out all the used and never-to-be used candles that you have. If they are out of shape, use a sandpaper and a knife to get them back in shape. Make sure all the candles are of the same size. Place the candles in a high ball glass (one candle per glass) and light them up.
Use them as ideas for easy thanksgiving or Valentine's day centerpieces; the choice is yours! For making floating candle centerpieces, take a bowl, half filled with water, add a few petals to it (of any flower) and lightly place a floating candle on it. Easy?

Balloon Bouquets

Baby showers also demand centerpieces. Balloon bouquets are affordable centerpieces for a baby shower.
Pink for girls, blue for boys, and colored balloon bouquets if the baby's gender is unknown. Helium balloons are cheap and look attractive. Tie them with ribbons and let them hover around. You can make small fruit baskets as centerpieces. Since they are edible, you don't have to worry about disposing them. Fruit baskets can be used as refreshments too.
Centerpieces are mostly required at weddings. You can make wedding centerpieces, out of photos of the bride and the groom, dried twigs and fresh flowers, wine goblets, or tissue paper crafts too.
Centerpieces or table decorations make the decor vibrant and cheerful. They give the party a personal touch and manage to silently say a lot about the host. In a practical sense, centerpieces are a way of recycling too. After all, where else would you use the dried twigs from your garden or the used candles!
