If you are getting married in a barn wedding venue, you may be wondering how you are going to style your tables? Not only does your choice have to fit in with the rest of your decor and suit your personalities, it needs to fit in with the existing character a barn already has. I have 10 amazing ideas for you, for table centrepieces that might just take your fancy!! 


These ideas I have for you fit in with the rustic charm of a barn building and add will help you pull off a cohesive design that compliments your venue. Whether you are opting for elegant and romantic, or rustic and relaxed, I'm confident you will find a style you love.


Metal buckets are a fantastic alternative to liven up your tables. There are lots of different plants you can use to fill them, lavender in particular looks amazing inside silver buckets. You can also include your table numbers by having them poke out the top to finish your centrepiece.


Clay Bud Vases

These handmade bud vases have a neutral base which makes them suitable for all colour schemes. They look great styles with greenery or for a lighter touch add dainty wild flowers. You can either scatter them around middle of the table or create a cluster for a more central position.

Water Jugs

Water jugs are great for a heavier look with flowers and foliage which can be positioned in the centre of the table for everyone to enjoy. Incorporate your table number by tying around the neck of the jug with a luggage tag.

Glass Bud Vases

Glass vases can be found in all different colours and look great styled in a cluster with candles in the middle of your table.

Wooden Spools

A great idea, for a modern vintage style wedding, is using wooden spools, piled on top of books with single dried flowers placed through the holes in the top, gives a unique and fun alternative to your centrepiece.


Table Number Stands

You need to make your table number visible so why not make a feature based around them by attaching them to a stylish stand.


Coloured wine or beer bottles look great for an informal look on the table. You can attach your table number to them as well as fill with quirky florals. Place on top of wood slices makes them stand out.


Lanterns are a great alternative and suit a barn wedding really well. You can light a simple candle or fill with flowers for a fun creative touch. 



Glass jars look super cute as a cluster in the middle of the table and in different heights and sizes. You can decorate them up depending on your theme or use some simple twine to finish. Pop in single stem flowers or delicate baby's breath for an elegant touch.

Plant Pots

Potted plants or herbs make amazing table centrepieces, as well as and eco- friendly choice there are many varieties to choose from and looks of fun containers to display them in too.
