If I was to get married again (no worries hubby!), it would have to be a destination wedding on a beautiful, warm and tropical beach. It would be an all-out beach theme party with sand, seashells and calming coastal hues. This simple and elegant beach theme centerpiece idea would have to be at the center of it all! It’s the perfect DIY beach wedding (or bridal shower) decor that I could keep as a memento of the special day to use for decorating my home or cottage.
When we worked with Afloral.com last fall to create a simple burlap and anemone flower wreath, we were so impressed with the quality and huge selection of their products that we were determined to partner with them again. We did a little happy dance when they agreed to sponsor us for this DIY coastal centerpiece project and provide the supplies.

Instructions to make your own Beach-Themed Centerpiece and Tablescape
We’re happy to share this quick video tutorial with you:
We think this coastal-inspired centerpiece turned out beautifully. It was so simple to make and the quality of the materials provided by Afloral.com is so high that the entire beachy and neutral tablescape looks so elegant. The mercury glass votive holders are so versatile and pretty. We’ve also used them in our woodland themed Thanksgiving tablescape as well as our cozy coastal Christmas mantel.
Although I nearly crashed onto the table trying to get this picture, it was well worth it!
I wish that I often threw such lavish and elegant dinner parties, but with four little kiddos around to break everything, it doesn’t happen nearly enough. Until then, I’m looking forward to displaying this gorgeous coastal-inspired flower arrangement in our Graystone Beach cottage, which we have been renovating over the last few months. This piece will be right at home there!

If you were to have another wedding, would you do it differently?
