Have you ever been to an event and found yourself bobbing and weaving around the table centerpiece trying to have a conversation with the person across from you? While they may be eye-catching and tall, extravagant centerpieces can take up your entire table making it awkward to speak to other guests. Event Manager Blog has 16 ideas for some shorter, but just as impactful, centerpieces to use for your tables.  Here’s a look at a few of our favorite ideas.

  • Succulents– These low-maintenance plants make for the perfect short centerpieces! Event planners won’t have to worry about them wilting or wait for them to open up and bloom.  They add just the right amount of greenery to any table.
  • Long Flower Box– Instead of going for height, go for length. Fill up a long box with your favorite flowers. Add a little sign to add some personalized detail.
  • Short Stem Roses– Cut off the stems of the roses and place them in a shorter vase. The table will be elegant, and you won’t have to worry about those thorns.
  • Props– Depending on the theme of your event, using props as the centerpiece can incorporate some fun to the table. For example, for a movie themed event, fill plastic popcorn buckets with white hydrangeas to make it look like there’s actual popcorn in the bucket.
