Bored with all the wedding centerpieces you’re seeing? Not to worry—you’ve just stumbled upon a cornucopia of creativity when it comes to livening up the focal point of your reception tables. Reception tables are increasingly becoming ripe with one sweet trend—wedding centerpieces with fruit. Some brides are opting to ditch the blooms altogether in favor of fruit as the crux of their table setting, while others are choosing to infuse their harvest goods amongst their florals.

It looks like both types of brides are on to something. When paired with lush flowers, fresh fruit can enrich a wedding centerpiece’s natural design and capture each blossom’s beauty. For example, succulent peaches in a bowl of gardenias can enhance the flower’s Southern charm. Fruits can also add texture and amp up color, whether by layering, contrasting, or blending with the hues of the petals. Pomegranates, berries, and cherries can work with red and fuchsia roses for shades of romance, or vivid limes can fill a vase of sunflowers for a lively look. Flowers and fruit are a dynamic duo—together they can elevate the senses through their combined fragrances, with fruit also evoking a titillating sense of taste.

But sometimes, fruit is at its best when it does all the talking itself. Run a garland of apples down the table’s center for a rustic vibe, or combine grapefruit and blackberries in a vintage vase for a charming taste of variety. If you really want to go all out, mix your fresh produce with other edibles—think herbs and spices and vegetables like carrots, or both!

Whatever style you go for, one thing’s for sure—fruit, whether deeply hued berries, sunny citrus goodness, or those in between, won’t fail to add a wow factor to your tablescape. Behold, 25 fresh and flavorful centerpieces that look good enough to eat.
