Seven Succulent Table Centerpiece Ideas You Can Eat!

Most weddings tend to favor flowers as the feature of each table, but most guests would love to sit with something they can dig into.

Fruit and Fondue


If you really want to wow your guests, fondue is a great way to surprise and delight. Having it as the centerpiece to each table is an awesome and delicious way to get people talking, as well as keep them full. You can include fruit, cheeses, breads, as well as cheese fondue or chocolate for each table.

Elegant Bread Basket


A bread basket is the perfect start to a meal, and it's extremely cost-effective. Add a couple of different types of breads for each table. McHale’s Events & Catering suggests using a variety of different spreads from their hors d’oeuvres menu as well, like hummus or a creamy ranch dip. Dress it up by putting it in a special basket or dish that brings out the decor for your wedding.

Miniature Cakes


Instead of having a giant cake to cut during the reception, a small cake on each table is a smart alternative that guests will love for convenience and look. Guests won't have to stand in a long line to get cake, and each table can cut their cake after the bride cuts hers.



A cutting board with fine meats, cheeses, pickles, and olives is a great way to add class to your reception table. Don't forget the bread or crackers, as well as a variety of different cheeses. Whether your wedding venue is in Northern KY or Honolulu HI, you can include local cuisine on your board like fruits, meats, and cheeses. Aside from the delicious smorgasbord of food, the visual appeal screams high class, and offers guests something different.



Similar to a candy buffet except on each table, a candy centerpiece is a great way to give a little color and fun to your reception. Fill up bowls with hard candies, gummies, and chocolates so no one can go home saying they didn't get their fill of sweets.

Cookie Trays


If you want to combine the cost of favors and centerpieces, consider adding a delicious assortment of cookies on a tray as the centerpiece, along with tongs and baggies for guests to take some home. They'll appreciate the fact they can take as little or as much as they want, while still being able to eat them during the reception.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries


Chocolate covered strawberries are one of the most romantic foods in the world, so it makes sense to include them in your wedding. A small set of them included on each table, stacked elegantly, is a delectable option for a centerpiece, and is sure to set the theme for an elegant wedding.

Have fun with any of these centerpiece ideas for a unique wedding reception that's tasty and tasteful.
