Another up and coming trend is using fruit in the centerpiece, particularly slices of fruit. Fruit has always been a common centerpiece item for many family dinner tables. Seeing this trend emerge into weddings is rather refreshing. Using limes or lemons, sliced or whole, is perfect for a spring or summer wedding with corresponding wedding colors. Slices of kiwi, orange, grapefruit, key, and whole pears have been tagging along with this trend. This can be done two ways if you have the right cylinder centerpieces available. Often suggested is to place a smaller vase inside the cylinder to be used just for the small bouquet of flowers with water. Then add the slices of fruit desired in the gap between. The other way is to omit the smaller vase, just stack and layer the slices carefully before adding the bouquet and then water last. Tie ribbon or string around the cylinder to complete the look. This is even versatile and looks rustic in mason jars, but rather chic in the cylinders.
