The choice of the centerpieces usually depends on the type of the party it's intended for. There are a number of universal ideas that will be suitable for many occasions.Towering wedding centerpieces provide a dramatic effect at a wedding reception. Although creating a stunning tall wedding centerpiece is important to many brides, designing centerpiece ideas without flowers that won’t obstruct a guest’s view should be the top priority. Centerpieces at least 24 inches high with thin bases and most of the decor at the top make it easy for guests to see around and still provide a dramatic look. Very tall arrangements can leave centerpieces looking top-heavy. Balance the centerpiece ideas without flowers out by surrounding them with a low-lying element. This could include roses petals, votive candles, small floral arrangements or family wedding photos in miniature frames.
