Colored Sand Wedding Centerpiece Ideas
Posted on January 28, 2016 by Stacy Harbert
Coming up with centerpieces for your wedding reception may seem like a daunting task, especially with all of the ideas you can find on Pinterest and different wedding planning sites. We want to help! Our colored unity sand is not just for your unity sand ceremony - it also can be used in floral arrangements and other reception centerpiece decor. With over 90 colors of sand to choose from, and all available in 25lb bulk boxes, we're sure you can find something to match nearly any wedding theme or color trend. By using colored sand, you can create beautiful and unique centerpieces that will coordinate perfectly with the rest of your wedding decor.
Candles make beautiful and classic centerpieces. Add color and interest to candle centerpieces by using colored sand. Layer your wedding colors and top with white pillar or tealight candles. Create an ombre effect using different shades of similar colors. We love this example using neutral colored sand that would also make beautiful home decor. Sandsational Sparkle unity sand is safe for use with candles.
Floral arrangements are a common choice for centerpieces. Our friends at Corona Del Mar Florist in California use our colored unity sand in many of their floral arrangements, and they are beautiful! Check out some of their arrangements for inspiration. We love the "milk shake" arrangement with carnations and a cute striped straw. This would be an easy arrangement to recreate on your own! With so many unity sand colors to choose from, it's easy to coordinate the sand to your flowers. We like the added weight and stability the colored sand gives the arrangements. If you're using artificial flowers, our colored sand is a great option if you're looking for a way to hold the stems in the vase.
While there are many more uses for colored sand in centerpieces, here are just a few more. Fill a vase with a neutral or complimentary colored sand and set a flower bloom or dried flower on top. Even though it is so simple to make, it will make an incredibly elegant and romantic display, especially paired with some flickering candles. Our sand is safe to use in terrariums! We love the pop of this hot pink colored sand (our begonia would be a great match), and these succulent centerpieces would also make awesome favors for guests to take home with them. If you're having a beach wedding, create an underwater scene! Most of our colors of sand will not bleed in water, so you can submerge it safely. Top the neutral colored sand with shells, starfish, sand dollars, and more to create a charming beach scene at every table.
