Suspended Centerpiece Ideas That Are Sure to Make Your Guests' Jaws Drop

Wedding Style & Decor

We've already shared some of our favorite macramé wedding ceremony backdrops, but we're loving this boho-chic trend so much that we're back with another amazing en vogue idea — suspended macramé centerpieces for your wedding reception. Instead of displaying floral arrangements on the dinner tables, hang them above guests to create an amazing focal point in your reception space. Here are six takes on this creative wedding trend.

Suspended Macramé Centerpieces (above): Terra cotta pots filled with bright-pink blooms really pop against the wood tables and chairs.

Hanging Macramé Installations: Or, you could skip the flowers and plants altogether and hang sculptural macramé rope pieces for a more simple, minimal look.

Cream Blooms and Greenery: We love the combination of soft, fluffy cream blooms with fresh greenery suspended in macramé planters over the dessert table.

Flowers and Ferns: If you're doing extra-long dinner tables at your reception, suspend hanging macrame arrangement of flowers and ferns overhead to create a dramatic look.

Modern and Minimal: For a unique twist on this wedding trend, suspend candles overhead at varying heights instead of flowers.

Rustic and Natural: For an organic, rustic feel, use mix-cut stems of flowers with potted herbs and plants in your hanging installations.
