Tree centerpieces with pomanders

Who needs a few puny offshoots when you can decorate your reception table with an entire tree? For a modern look, spray-paint the branches a monochromatic hue and adorn with graphic pomanders in a bright color.

Why it's unexpected: It's a tree. On the table. Talk to your florist about which flowers serve best as pomanders.

More reasons to love it: After the wedding, prop the branches in an urn or large vase to create a piece of statement decor for your newlywed nest.
