Wooden Crate Boxes, Confetti Petals & Blackboard Bucket Centrepieces

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. We love the fact that they used lots of little tea-lights to give their tables a warm glow.

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.

The couple opted for pink confetti to use after they had said ‘I Do’. If you’re struggling for ideas on how to display your confetti, this real wedding is bursting with inspiration.

You could display it in silver buckets for a dash of country garden elegance. They also look gorgeous in floral cones or our ‘Sprinkle Me’ bags.

We adore how Charlotte and Bradley filled jugs with roses and used them to decorate their wedding venue. They used them to add a floral touch to their card and gift table, and it effortlessly added to the beauty of Shustoke Barn!

Bark Vase Rustic Wedding Centrepiece

This week our wedding decoration of the week is our bark vase rustic wedding centrepiece. This bark container is a lovely vessel to use if you are looking to create a rustic style centrepiece. Depending on the overall size you want for your centrepiece we suggest using one of these in the centre with 3 – 5 bark tea light holders around it. Or for a larger centrepiece we suggest a grouping of two of these vases in the centre of the table as well as one of the larger size again with bark tea light holders mixed in to complete the look. Hessian / burlap table runners would add to this look too.

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!
