7 EASY DIY CENTREPIECES
You might be the type of person who decorates every single corner of your home for a party or the type that does the bare minimum. Either way, a centrepiece, according to IKEA, is a wonderful way to make a statement without having to spend too much time and money on décor.
A good location is the central table, which is usually where guests will hover and where all the food tends to be! Here are 7 great DIY ideas:
- Nothing says ‘party’ as effortlessly as balloons do.
- Fairly inexpensive and just what you need for any party, create your very own fun centrepiece using balloons.
- The colours and accents can be switched for different ones depending on what you are celebrating and what season it is.
- Instead of anchoring them on the table, or making an arrangement out of them, use string and let the balloons float above the table!
- Tie them to fun, matching table decorations and you are good to go.
An edible centrepiece
- If you’re hosting a brunch or dinner party, your guests will be around the table for the most part.
- Impress with a centrepiece of fruits or other edible items – whether you should dissuade the guests from eating the centrepiece or not is completely up to you!
Candles, candles, candles
- This is a classic centrepiece idea that dates all the way back in history but isn’t used very often now. This eye-catching centrepiece is the perfect back-drop to Insta-worthy food photos.
- If you’re looking to achieve a romantic, vintage ambience, add some flowers to the mix.
- What’s more, IKEA has a vast range of candles in all kinds of colours, sizes and even fragrances you can choose from!
- Add height to the centrepiece with a tiered tray, preferably three-tiered.
- Decorate the tray with some sweet treats for an added touch.
- Parties have taken on a more minimal and natural theme over the years.
- That’s why greenery such as ferns and berries are the perfect assortment of decorations for a centrepiece, especially during the holidays!
For the kids
- DIY and kids’ parties are the ultimate duo!
- There is a lot that you can create for a centrepiece with a bit of craft paper and spare time.
- From paper flower centrepieces to paper lanterns and pin-wheel flowers, a little craft session is a good way to get the little ones involved in the decorating process.
