Unexpected Centerpiece Ideas

Branches and Small Flowers. Holding a winter wedding means your flower choices will be a little more limited. So it's good to know that you can make a gorgeous centerpiece out of bare branches and a very limited number of flowers.

Sugared Lemons. Dusting lemons and limes with sugar tones down their bright colors for a more muted and sophisticated palette -- and they look good enough to list on your dessert menu.

Candles Hanging From Branches. Tea lights strung from manzanita branches capture a romantic "enchanted forest" vibe.

Colorful Table Lamps. Borrow an idea from interior design and line your dinner tables with chic desk lamps. The extra light on the tables makes for an intimate glow, while the big lampshades provide a bold block of color.
