Rustic Bridal Shower Centerpieces

From teapots to pumpkins, there are so many cute ways to decorate the tables for a vintage or shabby chic theme. Use these rustic bridal shower centerpiece ideas to get started.

1. Hollowed-Out Pumpkin Centerpiece

If the bride loves all things autumnal and pumpkin spice, then swap the predictable glass vases for mini pumpkins instead. White pumpkins are easier to match with flowers and will add a chic touch to your fall bridal shower centerpieces.

2. Teapot Centerpiece

Planning a tea party bridal shower? Arrange flowers in ceramic or bronze teapots for instant charm. Collect them from thrift stores in colors and patterns that match your party theme.

3. Wooden Vase Centerpiece

Wooden vases bring natural texture to your table decor and offer a lovely rustic contrast to delicate flowers. Other earthy touches, like greenery, will pop against the wood accents.

4. Mini Cloche Jar Centerpiece

For a sweet, country-chic party vibe at your bridal shower, showcase roses and moss in glass cloches or mason jars.

5. Shabby Chic Centerpiece

A wooden tray can be topped with pretty flowers in bud vases to create a simple rustic bridal shower centerpiece. Finish the tablescape with lace fabric and votive candles to complete the shabby chic look.

6. Greenery and Rose Centerpiece

Antique mercury glass vases are instantly dressed up with the addition of fresh blooms and greenery. This petite centerpiece can decorate your dessert table, gift table or anywhere that needs a little zhuzhing.

7. Vintage-Inspired Centerpiece

Add French country flair to your party space with pretty floral patterned mugs and vintage books. It's the perfect bridal shower table decoration for the bride who loves curling up with coffee and a good read.

Hydrangeas are so pretty on their own (these are the 'limelight' variety) that you don't need to add much else. This centerpiece idea is perfect for a simple summer party in the backyard.

10. Baby's Breath Centerpiece

We love the fact that there are so many different ways to use baby's breath—including your bridal shower centerpieces. An oversized bundle will quickly decorate the gift table or favor table.

11. Minimalistic Greenery Centerpiece

Skip the flowers and go for a streamlined look instead with tropical plants in tall gold vases.

12. Fresh Herb Centerpiece

If you're hosting the party at a rustic venue (think vineyard or local park), these herb centerpieces are an alternative to standard flowers. Pick fragrant plants, like rosemary or lavender, and display them in terracotta pots for the finishing touch.

Decorate your tables using colorful glass bottles and wildflowers for a fun but simple bridal shower centerpiece idea.

For the bride who loves a little bit of glitz and glam, no ordinary centerpiece will do. This eye-catching arrangement features roses in a colorblocked design to instantly transform the tablescape.

17. Pineapple Centerpiece with Colorful Flowers

Treat your guest of honor to a little R&R by throwing a tropical-themed bridal shower. Incorporate pineapples (left as-is or painted to match the color scheme), vibrant flowers and summery cocktails for all the good vibes.

18. Jewel Tone Centerpiece

Pair fuchsia and red roses with white table linens and other neutral accents for a dramatic, high-contrast effect.

19. Centerpiece with Books

If the bride prefers books over flowers, incorporate them into the bridal shower centerpieces as a nod to her personal style. Try to find vintage or rare copies of her favorite books—she can take them home as keepsakes after the party.

20. Driftwood Centerpiece

Create a beachy or nautical bridal shower centerpiece by adding pieces of driftwood among the flowers and other details.

Whimsical candlestick holders and colorful tapers were the key components of this eclectic centerpiece. With fun details like these, you can get away with using fewer flowers.

22. Cactus Centerpiece

These little potted cacti will bring a cool boho vibe to any tablescape. Cluster them together alongside the place settings and let your guests take them home as bridal shower favors when the party ends.

23. Tablescape with Woven Charger Plates

Don't stop at flowers when it comes to your bridal shower table decorations. Fringed raffia charger plates will add a splash of boho style to your setup, even if the flowers and centerpieces are a little more traditional.

24. Glass Bottle Centerpiece

A grouping of bud vases with small florals can fill the same amount of space as a larger arrangement, but it requires fewer blooms. We love how the pops of pink, white and purple flowers stand out against all of the clear glass elements.

25. Macrame Table Runner

Something as simple as a runner could add the extra charm your tables need. Macrame is always a fitting choice for a boho theme (and it's casual enough to reuse for other get-togethers in the future).

26. Boho Fall Centerpiece

Pampas grass, seasonal foliage and foraged berries are great alternatives to traditional flowers if you're hosting a fall bridal shower.

Elegant Bridal Shower Centerpieces

Timeless florals, chic color palettes and understated details are the foundation of these elegant bridal shower centerpieces.

27. Ginger Jar Centerpiece

With their signature blue and white motifs, ginger jars and chinoiserie vases are classic yet playful. Experiment with pattern mixing by adding a striped tablecloth underneath.

28. Spray Rose Centerpiece

You can't go wrong with a combination of spray roses, hydrangeas and dusty miller. This sweet arrangement is ideal for formal venues and more traditional bridal showers.

29. Glam Centerpiece

Ready to go all out with your party decor? This lavish tablescape will make the bride feel like a million bucks. Cover the tables in flower petals, add candles and finish with long-stemmed roses and metallic gold details.

30. Garden-Inspired Centerpiece

Use flowers you'd find in your backyard garden, like roses, peonies, lilacs and delphinium, to create a welcoming, homey atmosphere.

31. Dahlia Centerpiece

Dahlias are at their peak during the late summer and fall seasons. Paired with fresh eucalyptus and copper vases, they're a stunning addition to any centerpiece.
