The origin of wedding centerpieces
Wedding centerpieces were introduced to society in the 18th century, when servants began serving individual plated meals to guests. This eliminated the family-style meal, creating open space on the table for décor!
Although the entrée would no longer be in the center of the table, the first wedding centerpieces were still food-based. The display was almost always vertical in shape and included:
- Food arranged as pyramids
- Food arranged on tiered dishes (epergnes)
- Molded puddings and jellies
