Pair them with fresh flowers, ribbons, pom-poms and tulle for unique paper lantern table centerpieces that honor your personality. Use these paper lantern centerpiece ideas to create the tables of your dreams without breaking the bank!

Suspended Paper Lantern Centerpieces - The beauty of the paper lantern is that it's meant to be hung. You can use affordable hanging lanterns for centerpieces with a floating vibe, effectively adding some extra height, color and dimension to each table. You'll want to choose large- or medium-sized globes if you plan to style your centerpiece with a single lantern or opt for two or three small lanterns for a polka-dotted effect.

Paper Lantern Vases - Perfect for more traditional wedding reception table designs, centerpieces that use paper lanterns instead of vases bridge the gap between classic and casual. Using whatever size and shape lantern you prefer (particularly one with an enclosed bottom, such as a globe- or oblong-shaped lantern), use the opening of the lantern as a makeshift vase for flowers.

Paper Lantern String Lights - If you're looking for low-cost table centerpieces for wedding styles that skew informal, then you'll love the idea of topping off your unconventional centerpieces with paper lantern string lights. You can add color, texture and excitement to any kind of table decor when you wrap your vases and features in small white or colored paper lantern lights. If you're searching for affordable lighting ideas for table centerpieces, this is a great option.

Illuminated Paper Columns - Rather than investing in pricey fresh flowers and vases, create an illusion of whimsy and intrigue when you use colorful cylindrical paper lanterns and LED lights to create a soft, glowing column at the center of your table. You can play on the traditional floral centerpiece look when you adorn your paper lantern centerpieces with fresh or silk flowers, satin ribbons and trinkets that honor your wedding theme.

Miniature Paper Lanterns - Those who prefer low-profile lantern centerpieces for wedding tables with an elegant or dainty vibe can bundle three or four miniature round paper lanterns together to create a unique lighting display at the center of the table. These centerpieces look stunning when paired with large, fluffy blossoms like hydrangeas, garden roses or peonies.

Alternating-Height Lanterns - Especially ideal for long dining tables, this scheme implements small round lanterns at various heights -set directly on the table and atop platforms at various heights - to create an intriguing, multidimensional effect. You can also place your paper table lanterns around floral centerpieces in circular dining tables for a commanding ripple effect.
