How to make feather centerpieces
Vibrant peacock feathers make stunning table centrepieces. (feathers image by from

If you are planning a reception or party, transform feathers into an unexpected table centrepiece. If you are on a tight budget, using feathers to create table decor may be more economical than making flower arrangements. Feather centrepieces are also reusable and long-lasting. Faux feathers available at hobby stores are an affordable and attractive option. Use a feather centrepiece to enhance a holiday dinner table, a boring buffet table or even a picnic or patio table.

  1. 1

    Choose a type of feather with which to create a centrepiece. Pick green and blue iridescent faux peacock feathers for an exotic centrepiece. Go for fluffy white faux ostrich feathers for an elegant look. Customise feather colour according to the decor theme of a room or party; choose pink for a Valentine's Day soir�e or orange for a Halloween bash.

  2. 2

    Pick a decorative container. Choose a glass, crystal or porcelain vase, or a tall, clear glass cylinder vessel. Place peacock feathers in a green or blue glass vase for a coordinated look. Slip ostrich plumes in a white porcelain vase for a fresh, sophisticated style. Fill a red vase with green-coloured feathers for a Christmas party or black feathers in a gold or silver vessel for a rich look.

  3. 3

    Place eye-catching fillers into the vessel prior to inserting the feathers. Fill a clear glass vase with festive red berries, vibrant gel beads, marbles, colourful glass gems, coffee beans, candy corn or cherries to create a seasonal or themed centrepiece.

  4. 4

    Enhance the feather arrangements with additional decorative items. Complete a white-on-white display with calla lilies or tuberoses. Complement a romantic pink feather centrepiece with long-stemmed red or pink roses. Place bamboo sticks or orchids into a vessel containing peacock feathers.

  5. 5

    Set the arrangement on a striking underlayment. Choose reflective mirror tiles, a lace runner, moss, delicate antique doilies or autumn leaves, among other options.
