You can quite easily go out and by cheap but pretty fabrics to create a great look and create centre pieces out of pretty much anything.
Here are a few of my favourite current ideas ...
I love the idea of using Doilies as a table runner .. I'm thinking of recreating this myself for my own dining table at home! These gorgeous runners are available from Littlewhiteboutique on www.etsy.com but I'm sure those of you who are handy with a sewing machine could come up with something similar for yourself.
They also do these gorgeous rustic burlap and lace cutlery holders for your tables.

If you do want flowers as a centrepiece .. think of using unusual display ideas or vases. I love these vintage and retro canisters that have been used. Clustering them together like this creates a better visual impact.
