Charlotte and Bradley added a touch of country charm to their wedding tables by using our blackboard buckets as their wedding centrepieces. These blackboard bucket centrepieces are the perfect fit for a rustic or country wedding. You can write the table name or numbers on the piece of blackboard. This loved-up duo opted for a delightful combination of blush pink, ivory and green blooms created by Passion for Flowers to fill their blackboard buckets.

There are lots of different ways you could use our blackboard buckets centrepieces throughout your wedding. You could stack them up to use them as a stylish seating plan, or you could fill with fun activity books and table games to keep the children entertained.

Charlotte and Bradley also used wooden crates throughout their wedding day to add a rustic feel to their decor. They used the crates to hold the bride and bridesmaids’ beautiful bouquets. You can also use wooden crates to display your seating plan, or as shelves for decorations.

Grey & White Winter Wedding – Mercury Silver Decorations

We loved seeing how this couple used our mercury silver decorations and other bits and pieces at their weddings. Lou and Craig had a winter wedding at Warwick House, they wanted an elegant wedding and chose a colour palette of silver, grey, white and cream tones. They used lots of little details from The Wedding of my Dreams including grey hearts down the staircase, mercury silver vases, tea light holders and name cards as well as our American style mail box.

Lou and Craig chose our sister company Passion for Flowers as their wedding florists.

Grey Willow Hearts Used As Staircase Decorations

To decorate the staircase at Warwick House our large grey willow hearts were hung from the banisters with grey ribbon. A cream rose and green/grey eucalyptus was attached to each heart which looked stunning going up the stairs.

The tables were styled with some lovely details, every last detail was thought about. Each napkin had a sprig of grey/green eucalyptus tucked into silver grey ribbon which bought the elegant grey tones onto the tables. Elegant wedding place settings grey and white

Succulent Wedding Favours in Mercury Silver Pots

Passion for Flowers created the wedding favours for the geusts. They used tiny succulent plants and planted them in our mercury silver tea light holders for an elegant look. The personalised luggage tags were tied around the succulents for guests to take home. Mercury Silver Tea Light Holders  Used To Hold Succulent Wedding Favours

Advice For The Bride And Groom Coasters

Each guest was given a coaster, here you can see the reverse of the coaster saying ‘Happily Ever After’. The other side asks guests to write down their advice for the bride and groom – this makes a lovely alternative to a traditional wedding guest book.

Top Table – Mercury Silver Decorations

For the top table Passion for Flowers moved the ceremony table arrangements through onto the centre of the top table and then either side of that they added flowers and candles in mercury silver vases in a mix of shapes and sizes. We love the cream roses, and hydrangeas with the mercury silver.

This step by step guide was created by our sister company Passion for Flowers as part of a collection of DIY posts for Rock My Wedding Blog. See the original post here. Photography by Adam Crohill.

You can buy the wooden crates here (this one was painted white).

How To Make A Centrepiece In A Wooden Crate

You will need:

(this shows how to make this exact arrangement, you can choose different flowers to tie in with your wedding style)

  • Wooden Crate
  • Oasis Block
  • Oasis Tray
  • Scissors
  • Cellophane or plastic bag
  • Pittosporum Garnetti
  • Blue Hydrangeas

how to make a centrepiece in a wooden crate

5. Now it’s time to start positioning your key flowers (here we have used hydrangeas, dahlias and roses).

6. When cutting the stems make sure you cut them on a diagonal to increase their surface area making it easier for them to take in more water.

7. Fill in the gaps with the other flowers.

8. As this is going to sit in the centre of you table look at it from different angles to make sure there are no gaps, if you find any gaps fill them in with flowers.

Guest tables

For a round table we suggest using one of these in the centre of your table, or for long guest tables we suggest spreading a number of these out length-ways down the centre of the table.

Top Table

For a long top table place 3 – 5 wooden crates (depending on the size of your table) next to each other to make a longer wooden trough shape, this will look stunning placed in front on the bride and groom.

Have a go!

Are you thinking of making your own centrepieces, leave us a comment and let us know. We’d love to see your photos.

Chalkboard Wedding Signs

Our chalkboard wedding signs were a big hit with couples at the wedding show, we used them as wedding chair signs on either side of the table. The here comes the bride chalkboard sign would usually be held by a young bridesmaid or page boy as they walk down the aisle. The Mr and Mrs chalkboard signs could be hung on the bride and groom’s chairs.

Bud Vase Name Card Holders – Just Like Salt Cellars

Our bud vase name card holders were at every place setting, holding lovely stationery from Tom Gautier. A tiny sprig of wax flower was placed in the bud vase, we love the idea of these being given as a wedding favour for guests to take home with them.

Bronze Tea Light Holders & Vases

The table scape used a mix of bronze vases in assorted sizes as well as crystal glass vases which had been sourced from flea markets and vintage shops.  Dotted around the florals were our bronze ribbed tea light holders and our chunky bronze vases were used in the mix on the table.
