Black Bear Crossings wedding venue in St. Paul

In many circles of families and friends, the holiday season means something other than presents and food— that’s right, I’m talking about engagements! If you or someone you know got engaged over the holidays, the wedding planning may have already begun. Black Bear Crossings Café and Banquet Center wants to help you get started by providing some of our favorite spring centerpiece ideas for your reception tables.

Bird & Branch: For early spring, when Minnesota tends to be lacking in many colors or blossoms, the bird and branch centerpiece is a great way to incorporate the simplicity of post-winter trees with the bright colors and life of tiny birds. Adding blossoms to the branches is a nice touch as well.

The Thirty Something Bride

Peonies: The brighter, the better. Adding just a few boldly colored peonies of varying lengths can add a lot to your tablescape, while also providing a nice pop of color to a neutral color scheme.

Bamboo Box Garden: These fun boxes will have a window box effect on your tables. The bright burst of color and the freshness of the green grass bring the feeling of spring to the table. You can find complete instruction on how to assemble these adorable gardens here.

Fresh Herbs: While slightly unconventional, these bright green centerpieces will have a wide-range of textures and shapes, creating a unique center to any table. Farmers’ markets often carry oregano, basil, or tarragon that smell good and look bright. The plants also make great wedding favors that guests can take home and maintain for culinary purposes.
