I truly love how these these DIY Table Centerpieces turned out for the After Party. We had so much fun decorating for the After Party of Build Your Blog Conference 2016. At the party we had 16 larger tables and we knew we wanted the centerpieces on those tables to be bigger than on all the other tables.
Our inspiration came from a centerpiece at a party we went to for My Heritage during RootsTech 2016. We added to that idea and came up with these DIY Table Centerpieces that looked so beautiful on our tables.
Our Supply List was as follows:
LED Lighted Branches 39″ Tall
(We got ours at Bed Bath and Beyond)
Large Glass Vases
(We found all of ours at DI for no more than $1.50 a piece)
(We found ours at Dollar Tree and used 1 package per vase)
(We used white/gold)
Gold Pennent Banner
Small Gold Clothespins
Gold Dot Tissue Paper Roll
Assembly was so simple. We used the gold dot tissue paper (it’s thicker than standard tissue paper but not as thick as like wrapping paper) from Hazel and Ruby to put in the center of each table. We measured out a length that fit well without being where people would be putting their plates (this will depend on the size of your table). We then took our lighted branches out of their boxes and put them in the glass vase. You want your vase tall enough to help balance the branches. Our vases are all approximately 10″ tall. We also made sure to pull the battery pack to the top of the vase so the lights would be easy to turn on and off without taking apart the centerpiece. We used a bag of paper shred purchased at the dollar store to fill the vase around the branches and to hide the battery pack and cords.
We used My Mind’s Eye tassel banners and mini gold banners to add to our lighted branches. We cut 4 gold pennants and using mini gold clothespins attached them to the branches (this was a great way to pull any branches back in that were trying to stick far out to the side).
I’ll be showing you in a couple days how we used the tassel banners in the centerpieces. My Aunt came up with the idea and it was so simple and worked perfectly (not to mention it made one tassel banner go a LONG way!).
The Little America Grand Ballroom is seriously beautiful even without our decorations. One of my favorite moments of the whole party was walking into the ballroom before everyone else was in there, the lights dimmed, our centerpieces on and seeing all our plans on display in front of me turning out better than I had imagined.
