Deciding on one basic element to include in your centrepieces is just the beginning; colour, filling and accessories need to be chosen as well. Choosing to create your centrepieces using Eiffel Tower vases allows for many different types of arrangements. Consider cost, time, transporting the centrepieces and the overall look and mood you want to create. The time, location and formality of your wedding also should play a role in the filler and accessories you ultimately choose.

Select the focal point of your centrepiece. Simple, elegant arrangements might include a plume of white ostrich feathers, three large flowers, such as calla lilies, or a floral arrangement with different types of flowers or branches, such as a single cherry-blossom branch.
Fill the vases with a "filler" of your choice, if your vases are clear. Wrap or arrange bear grass in the vase or insert curly twigs. Other options include pebbles, rocks, sea glass, marbles, silk rose petals, water or acrylic water or submerged flowers. You also might use floralytes, battery-operated lights, which illuminate your vase from the base up, creating an elegant and romantic ambience.
Assemble your centrepiece using the elements you selected. Look at it from all directions, and think of small items that should be placed around the vase to complement the arrangement. Votive candles, silk rose petals, single flower heads or coloured glass are different options.
Tips and warnings
- Use a bouquet holder designed for vases for larger floral arrangements to balance the arrangement.
- Black or silver vases filled with white or red flowers would work for a formal theme built around those colours. White vases may work for bright spring or summer themes, as well as a white winter theme.
- Avoid a heavy bouquet or focal point, which might cause the centrepiece to be top-heavy and unstable.
- Mix-and-match various items to create your centrepiece, but avoid using every element you like.
