Boxes of fruit centerpieces
Nothing says summer or fall quite like a crate of oranges or a wooden bucket of apples. Why not put the flavors of the season at the center of your wedding reception decor?
Why it's unexpected: The farmers' market vibe is a refreshing shift from the standard bouquet centerpiece -- though it might smell just as delicious! Your florist can help you find a few simple blossoms or wildflowers to tuck into jars or watering cans to complete the rustic look.
More reasons to love it: Turn your fruit centerpieces into inexpensive favors by leaving small signs on the table encouraging guests to take a piece of fruit home or to enjoy them with their meal!
