I found that the best place to look for stylish vintage centerpiece ideas is by looking through wedding photographs. There are a few wedding ideas below along with some normal home decor styling tips.
My favourite ideas are the ones where you don’t even need a centerpiece item, like the doily table runner idea.
Simple and Clutter Free
I like simplicity and avoiding using many decor pieces as this just clutters up a space.
Some simple ideas for a vintage centerpiece include a vintage style bottle used as a vase for flowers just like in picture (1). For some mood lighting use vintage style bottles, jars, or a bowl to hold candle sticks (2) or floating candles.
Other ways to house plants and flowers to create table centerpieces include using vintage tins (3), a vintage mini birdcage, or antique mercury style vessels/cake displays (4),
Some other simple ideas for vintage centerpieces include using:
- Vintage tin candles
- Wire baskets
- Vintage bounded coffee books like an old atlas
Focusing on Design Details Instead of a Centerpiece Item
A doily table runner, like the one in picture (5) can help style a coffee table or dining table.
While an elegant vintage tray (galvanized, wicker, wooden, enamel) can help group clutter items (remotes, keys, coasters) together for a cleaner look on the table.
The Coffee Table Itself
If you were to get a statement piece of a coffee table, this could be enough to style the space and you wouldn’t need a centerpiece on the table. Some ideas for a vintage inspired coffee table include:
- A gallery coffee table as seen in picture (6)
- A reclaimed window DIY
- An old trunk
- Letterpress draws (7)
