Our blog focuses on a lot of different things. Sometimes we talk about keeping things simple, sometimes we want our party to be more complex, and sometimes a completely casual, carefree attitude is what’s needed to pull off a party. And then there’s those times where a modern table centerpiece is all that will do. We’re not talking about modern art here, but definitely something that’s more stylish, chic, and elegant than your usual dining table centerpiece. For example, if you’re inviting your partner’s parents to your house for a dinner party for the first time, then you’ll want to consult the list we’ve put together for you today! So stick around for some amazing modern dining table centerpiece ideas that will make any special occasion stand out and impress all your dinner guests (yes, even your partner’s parents)!
1. Metal Hexagon Geometric Candle Holder
To start today’s list, we thought we’d start with a bang, and this geometric candle holder centerpiece certainly does that! What with its striking hexagonal design, gold color, and sleek finish, this centerpiece really stands out as something truly stylish. The best thing about this is that it’s suitable for all kinds of parties and dinners. Anything from your Christmas centerpiece to your Valentine’s day meal at home can be made better with this centerpiece. The fact that it’s also a tealight holder makes it even more special, and it can help create a wonderful, intimate atmosphere at the table as you gather with your dinner guests!
2. Geometric Pyramid Hanging Terrarium with Stand
Sticking with the geometric theme, but mixing in a touch of nature now, is this geometric pyramid hanging terrarium with a stand that makes for the perfect centerpiece! Why? Well, first you have the large gold frame, then you have the geometric, eye-catching shape, and finally it’s a terrarium. Hello? Do you need more explanation than that? Again, this is perfect for any dinner party or event because it’s such a talking point, but given its simple beauty, we could see this working really well at a wedding referral dinner. It adds class, sophistication, and style to any event – and that would certainly work at an event as important as this!
3. Cycle Shape Flower Vase
This cycle shape flower vase is a perfect example of a modern table centerpiece because it’s timeless. It has a vintage look to it, sure, but it’s still a very modern piece because it will work in any home, no matter your personal style. The simple white frame, the cycle shape, and the flower vase element all work together wonderfully to create a centerpiece worthy of being placed at any dining table for any event. Because of its vintage feel, though, we think it would look amazing at an Easter party or an afternoon tea party in the spring, giving you the perfect opportunity to show off some fresh flowers and celebrate this special time of year in style!
4. Decorative Crystal Candle Holder
Sometimes classy and sophisticated can handle a little bling too, you know. Need proof? Just check out this decorative crystal candle holder that is the perfect example of a modern centerpiece that will make any dining table feel special. This has space for 3 candles, so it can add a lot of light to the event to improve the atmosphere, and the striking crystal design shimmers with the dancing flames, creating such a wonderful effect and impressing all your dinner guests. This could work equally well at a birthday celebration such as a special 60th, or at the table for an engagement party! Whichever you decide, this crystal candle holder will add shimmering style to the big day!
5. Handmade Embossed Carved Soapstone Round Small Tealight Holder
Looking for something completely unique? You can’t get more unique that this handmade embossed carved soapstone round small tealight holder with flowers etched into its design. It has such a striking visual effect, and it looks as though it’s an ancient fossil, and yet it remains one of the most impressive modern table centerpieces you can find! No, there isn’t any bling, and no, it’s not golden or shimmering with crystals, but it is special. Light a tealight and place it into this and you’ll see the shadows of the flowers dancing around the room. In terms of the parties this one would be suitable for, it depends. We can certainly see it working amazingly at a little boys dinosaur theme party, or even at an outdoor summer BBQ party when the sun goes down. Either way, it’s an amazing choice and certainly one you ought to consider!
6. Rose Gold Metal Frame Clear Tube Glass Vases
Simple, yet effective, these rose gold metal frame vases are perfect for any romantic event, hen party, or little girl’s party. The sleek design, the rose gold frame, and the clear glass tube with space for fresh-cut flowers makes for a centerpiece that is romantic, stylish, and adorable all at once, so any three of the events above would become even more special with these vases! It’s such a classy design, needing none of the crystals or bling that other centerpieces have to impress, so if you prefer a more simple affair, then this is the perfect centerpiece for you!
7. Dove Single Flower Clear Glass Vase
Now, if simple were the word to describe the last centerpiece, then we don’t think we have another word in our vocabulary that can describe the simplicity of this piece. One glass dove with space for one single flower. To some, that might sound boring, but take a look at the dove single flower clear glass vase below, and you’ll see that simple can be just as stunning as complicated. For us, this is the perfect centerpiece for a wedding party, engagement party, or intimate romantic Valentine’s meal, because both doves and flowers are symbolic of love, so this is the perfect centerpiece for any event that celebrates love in its most simple, purest, and moving form!
8. Bird Statues Ornament
Two golden birds might be all you need to celebrate your next party or event in style! These bird statues ornaments are so beautifully designed that they really could work anywhere. The gold makes what is a simple design sing, and the whole thing feels luxurious. Look at the price though, and you’ll see you’re getting quite the bargain, and your dinner guests would never know how inexpensive they were – which, for us, is the key to an amazing modern table centerpiece! We think this would be beautiful at an animal-themed kids’ party, but it would also add so much class to a Golden wedding anniversary party or for someone celebrating a birthday a little later in life. Chic, yet cheap, that’s our kind of centerpiece!
9. Mini Artificial Plants Special Golden Can
Plants at the dinner table always feel special, but not everybody feels the need to head out into the garden to pick the latest fresh-cut flowers for the event, and you don’t need to either. Not when there are mini artificial plants like these on the market. They’re life like, beautiful, and decked out in a luxurious special golden can with words of encouragement on! Because of the messages, you might be confused about what party you’d be able to use them at, but we’ve already got a few brilliant ideas. How about at a graduation party? Or a party for a new job? There are plenty of things you can do when you have a centerpiece that looks this good, and we think you’ll struggle to think of a reason NOT to use it, compared to finding a reason TO use it.
10. Artificial Bonsai Pine Tree
This amazing artificial bonsai pine tree ornament is perfect for so many events. If you’re celebrating any Asian-themed event (be it Japanese Themed Party, Chinese New Year, Mid-Autumn Festival, or even just a sporting event held in Asia such as the recent Tokyo Olympics) then this bonsai tree will really help the event feel more authentic. It looks amazing with its traditional design, and because it’s artificial, you’ll be able to use it repeatedly. Better yet, in Japanese culture, the bonsai tree represents peace, balance, wisdom, and strength. All things you’ll need if you’re hosting a party for guests that you want to impress! Hopefully, this brings you lots of luck as you host your next dinner party!
11. Modern Farmhouse Table Centerpiece
A rustic modern farmhouse table centerpiece is often a thing of wonder. It might not catch your guests’ eye in quite the same way a dancing flame or a clear vase might, but it’ll impress your guests just the same. The thing that’s most beautiful about these centerpieces is that it looks rustic, and the vibrant green of the plants looks great against that stone pot. We love this centerpiece and we think you will too! In terms of where you can use it, well, the answer is anywhere. Because it’s such a crowd pleaser, it could be the centerpiece for a casual birthday buffet, but it would work just as well at a sophisticated dinner party.
12. Silver Crystal Candelabra 3 Arms
