Focus of Attention

TheKnot.com has an interesting array of photographs from real weddings; while browsing through I came across some insiprational centerpices and outdoor decor. Sicne our reception will be outdoors, a focus has been to make good use of the space in a clean, minimalist way.
A pineapple centerpiece with candle holders down a long table.
Never woulda thought... So Hawaii!

Love this fishbowl centerpice with starfish and candles. Feels clean and beachy.

Silk flowers in a fishbowl, simplistic but classic. See below for a twist.

The drowned flower look is so interesting, especially if you can make use of floating candles.
Another perk? Silk flowers submerge beautifully, and its tricky to tell when they're under water! A good way to cut costs

Palm fronds and fans in the canopy. Another touch of Hawaii that I love. A good way to spruce up an outside space, as well.

Wooden letters from any craft store, suspended with ribbons. Can be painted in your colors, left plain for a woodsy feel, whatever.
A tricky idea for outdoors but cute enough to include nontheless- a bead curtain of tiny mirrors and photos.
