5 Outdoor Centerpieces for Entertaining Guests

This is a centerpiece for an outdoor baby shower I put together.


Living in Minnesota, we appreciate the warmer months of summer! One of our favorite things is having people over for a BBQ or hosting fun parties. We don’t always set table decorations; most of the time, it’s all very informal. However, every once in a while, it’s fun to spruce it up a bit!


Guess what? I'm not the most creative person, but that doesn't stop me from jazzing up our tables! Decorating can be a blast, even for non-creative types. Trust me, if I can do it, you can too! Haha!


Below are a few table centerpiece ideas that I’ve done myself, and a few that I’ve gathered from the internet that I’d like to try.

Chargers, candles, and flowers are always a good idea!

Greenery adds elegance to any table. This was our daughter’s Sweet 16 party.


These are all ideas that have lived in my head and I carried them out with little to no cost. Honestly? Mason jars are a go-to for me because they are so versatile and can be used for many things.

Flowers from our garden in a jar I already had. This little mood booster cost me nothing!


Below are some ideas that I plan on trying very soon. If you plan to use food for a centerpiece and your party is outside, I highly recommend getting fly fans! They've been a game changer for our outdoor events.

Charcuterie boards are all the rage right now. We have these on a regular basis at our house. However, I haven’t used them as a centerpiece….yet!

This beautiful centerpiece from Simplicity in the South is made from items from a dollar store! Beautiful and affordable.


The bottom line is that there are multiple centerpiece ideas out there to host an incredible party. I don’t think it’s necessary to do these things every time you have guests in your home. However, I also believe we’ve lost a little bit of the parts of life that make people feel special. It’s important to celebrate the people in our lives that we love and care about. Adding a personal touch to your next outdoor event might be a great way to do that!


Until next time,
