For a bright and unexpected idea, add a dose of vibrant color to the reception tables by arranging fresh blooms in colorful vases. It's a unique way to introduce your wedding color palette to the table and add visual interest to the overall space. Ask your florist if he or she has a supply of colorful vases, or spend some time scouring your local antique and thrift stores to amass your own collection. You could even buy clear vases (usually quite affordable) and then tint them with glass paint. Here are our favorite reception tablescapes featuring centerpieces in colorful glass vases.
