Some uncommon ideas for bridal shower centerpieces are flamingos, vintage '60s beach umbrellas, and collections of globes and suitcases. Another unique idea is to fill common kitchen appliances, such as blenders, coffee makers, stand mixers and toasters, with flowers.
To create the most unique centerpiece, allow the theme of the bridal shower to inspire a centerpiece that has visual interest and complements the experience. For example, a tropical centerpiece created out of seashells and pool balls fits perfectly in a shower with a Hawaiian theme. Cowboy boots dipped in glitter are perfect centerpieces for a country western theme, while mini cacti in clay pots suit a desert-themed centerpiece. An Alice in Wonderland theme incorporates mismatched tea cups and watches set to different times. A rockabilly theme uses coke bottles from the '50s placed on old wooden crates.
Centerpieces that pay homage to the bride's personal tastes and interests also make unique statements. A stack of old cameras works perfectly for a bride who loves photography. A fashionista bride enjoys Chanel-inspired centerpieces such as purses overflowing with pearl necklaces. Preppy brides love gingham centerpieces with a mixture of soft pinks and greens. Brides that want to celebrate their heritage may opt for centerpieces like vintage piñatas or Vienna-inspired accordions.
