Centerpiece Vases: Classic and Timeless

June 21st, 2017 by Erin K. Martell

Quick question: what’s on every table at your event that can either get in the way or be a showstopper? You might be able to think of a few things, but we’re talking about centerpieces!

The centerpieces at your reception may seem like a minor detail when weighed against the swirl of venue, photographer and florist concerns. But as they’ll be on every table, guests will notice them.
