Everyone loves a great floral centerpiece, but there are many other creative ways to decorate your table top. While browsing on Pinterest, I came across this wonderful idea to incorporate books into centerpieces to create a vintage romantic look. From table number holders to cute potted creations, antique books can add that special touch to your wedding decor. Best of all, you can DIY many of these book centerpieces yourself!
Beautiful Book Centerpieces You Can Create Yourself
Centerpiece book decor can be as simple as stacking a few pretty antique books together and topping off with a simple flower arrangement. Or if you’re a little craftier, you can fasten numbers to a book cover with screws for cute table number holders.

I particularly love this idea of hollowing out a book to create this romantic look of flowers and succulents spilling out of the pages.

Sweet and quirky, you can easily make these antique book pop-up table numbers by carefully cutting out letters with a box cutter, but leaving the bottoms attached.

Book folding is a real art! Create 3 dimensional sculptures of shapes and letters by folding the individual pages of the book.

I got married in Vegas, so I didn’t have a traditional wedding. I always like to see what other people choose as their wedding centerpieces.
