Centerpieces: Eiffel Tower Vases

I live and die for centerpieces. I love them. I don’t know where my fascination began, but now when anyone says the words “party”, “meeting” or “reception” my mind immediately jumps to what we will do for the centerpieces. So, knowing this, it is no surprise that we will have 3 centerpieces. Our reception hall provides us with large, round tables, which I was thrilled about. (Centerpieces are so much more fun on a round table rather than a rectangular table.)

All of our centerpieces will have some sort of peacock feather incorporated into them. Nothing over the top, but just a little flare. 

This is my inspiration for centerpiece A. We have 30 tables, plus the head table to work with. Since these are so dramatic, I am only going to do 10 tables on the floor with these arrangements… I might also put one on the guest book table too, we’ll see.

Eiffel tower vases are on the pricey side ($10 for one at Michael’s), so I will be checking out Hobby Lobby, keeping my eyes on classified boards and scouring whole sale website and eBay. The feathers should be fairly inexpensive, I have found them reasonably priced on a lot of different websites and the curly wood things I have seen reasonably priced on 

I apologize, but I can't find the website where I got this picture, so if this is your picture, let me know and I will gladly give you credit.


  1. Keep your eye out for vases on craigslist and the weddingbee classifieds. I found my eiffel tower vases on craigslist for $5 each from a florist who wanted to get rid of her inventory.
