One of my favorite party decor tricks is....drum roll....a bucket! I know, pretty lame, right? But actually a bucket or a pail can be an amazing party detail! There are so many uses and styles that I could go on for days. One use for a pail that is my favorite is a centerpiece. Whether you are putting flowers in it, decorated centerpiece picks, or another filler, you can customize a pail in so many ways.
This chalkboard tin pail from the EventDesignShop on Etsy.com is fabulous for a rustic shabby chic party....write your message and/or table number on the pail, and then erase it when the day is done. You can use it over and over! Perfect for chilled wine or champagne, this is one centerpiece that actually makes perfect sense!
For a chic baby shower, I love this centerpiece...its so simple yet stylish and all you need is a pail, a ribbon, some tissue paper and a few decorated picks from the CreativeEvents shop on etsy.com
Using pails as planters is an obvious idea...but this centerpiece puts a twist on the norm, and your guests will all be asking to take home part of this centerpiece. With three pails per centerpiece, there is plenty to go around! These are from the MinSvenskaLandgard Shop on Etsy.com
A bucket is simple, yes, but what you can create with them is amazing!
