Whether you’re looking to DIY your wedding centerpieces or you’re planning another kind of party or bash, strawberries can make a great addition to your decor as well as the food you choose to serve! If you love strawberries, and all things pink and sweet, you can make your bash a little sweeter with strawberries included in your decor — and maybe even ones that you can eat! If you want to find some ways to create strawberry centerpieces, here are a few ways that you can give it a try!

Edible Arrangements

Although there is a company that makes edible arrangements that can work as centerpieces, you definitely don’t need to spend the money on having someone else do it. When you make your own edible centerpiece, you can customize it to your style and preferences so it features whatever fruits you want to showcase.

Strawberry Shortcake

Speaking of edible centerpieces, strawberry shortcake is one of the best aesthetically pleasing dessert options that also tastes magnificent. Strawberry shortcake can be easily layered and has a unique appearance, which can make it the perfect choice both for dessert and as a centerpiece.

Strawberry Cookies

If cake isn’t really your jam, you can always go for cookies to fill the center of your table. You can go for a cookie tray or a simple plate with cookies on it. You can even include whole strawberries around the cookies in order to make the strawberry element stand out even more.

Strawberry Floral Arrangements

It’s going for an entirely edible floral arrangement might seem like a bit much, you can always include a few seasonal fruits and traditional for arrangements. This can include using strawberries in order to make your floral arrangements a little bit more unique. You don’t even have to arrange the entire centerpiece yourself. You can simply go for a professionally arranged bouquet and stick a few strawberries in at the last minute.

Fruit Bowls

If you’d rather go completely for fruit, why not just put an entire fruit bowl in the center of every table? Not only can this be a great choice to serve as an appetizer, but it can also give a natural, organic vibe to whatever event you are planning.

Berry Bowls

If you want to get a bit more specific and moody with your fruit bowl, you can make it an entire bowl filled with berries. Even though this arrangement can primarily highlight strawberries if that’s what you are looking for, you can focus entirely on including berries in the arrangement for a slightly more curated look.

Strawberry Plants  

Did you know that strawberry plants can actually be extremely beautiful and easy to care for? If you didn’t, this option might revolutionize your entire decorative approach. If you’d rather have a sort of mix between simple strawberries and a floral arrangement, you can go for live plants in the middle of your tables. Strawberry plants are a great idea for this, and you can even use them as party favors for your guests to take home.

Strawberries and Edible Glitter

If you think strawberries and sugar are delicious and beautiful, you should definitely check out this idea — strawberries with edible glitter on top. Not only can the glitter function as a sugary sweet ganache, but it can also add to the simplicity and ambiance of the entire operation. All you have to do is find glitter that works for your color scheme.

Berry Baskets

If you want to go completely rustic, you can always find a basket or two so that your centerpieces look like you’ve just strolled in from picking fresh berries outside. You can even use some of the smaller baskets that usually hold strawberries and other fruits when you get them at the farmers market. This option is both simple and sweet.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

If you’re looking for something romantic and dazzling, you may want to check out some options that involve chocolate covered strawberries. This definitely isn’t everybody’s favorite option, but this does happen to be another idea that can function both as dessert and decoration.


However, if you would simply rather go for dessert, you can always do an option of chocolate fondue and strawberries. This one is simply delicious and intriguing!
