How to Decorate a Wedding Table in Less Than 2 Minutes


If you’re looking for a quick and easy centerpiece for a wedding reception or bridal shower (and really, who isn’t!?) than this DIY could be perfect for you. Ideal for spring or summer weddings, we love the mix of the succulents with the wooden plant stands and pop of color from the faux floral. Add in a touch of burlap to ground the centerpiece and a healthy sprinkling of metallic gold accents and you’ve got an easy wedding centerpiece that even the most DIY-shy bride can totally pull off (us included!). Seriously, this took us LESS THAN TWO MINUTES.

Everything we used for this centerpiece we found at JOANN, which has quickly become our favorite place to shop for DIY wedding decor and faux florals (which look beyond real…check out this other amazing spring/summer wedding centerpiece we created here!)

Here’s what you’ll need for this DIY wedding centerpiece that you can put together in no time, all from JOANN!

Step 1: Cut a strip of burlap long enough to cover the majority of your table and place it so it falls naturally (you might have to work with several of the areas to give it a wave-like appearance).

Step 2: Position two plant stands of varying heights on top of the burlap

Step 3: Add your succulents to the tables

Step 4: Next, add several votives around the tables

Step 5: Cut a single stem from the ranunculus bush and place one or two in each bud vase. Add one in front of the centerpiece and one behind

Step 6: Add your metallic accents around the centerpiece and voila! You’re done!
