Centrepieces help to set the theme of the decorations and bring extra decoration to the room and/or marquee.
What shall I choose for my centrepieces?
Whether it is a wedding, birthday or anniversary party, there are so many ways to showcase a particular theme; you can go big & bold or perhaps choose a subtle approach! Being creative is part of the fun and you can enjoy coming up with unique wedding centrepiece ideas while others may be overwhelmed with the choice.

Whether it’s your wedding day or anniversary, birthday party, corporate or charity event, or just a long overdue catch up with friends, there’s plenty to sink your teeth into!
Hiring a marquee is a great way to host a party.
