@futuremrscap:   Have you thoughts of using the fans (slightly overlapping)  and candles as a runner down the middle of the table.  Like a few fans then a candl.  Then fans, then candle, ect

@futuremrscap: you could make a table runner of many small fans and place half on each side of your vase

Rosette assembly~

You could fold a long rectangle of paper and bring it around to form  ruffle shape. Tape or glue the ends together, then set the vase in the center.

@futuremrscap:  see the pink ruffle instructions. You will have to experiment with the size of paper you use to make a ruffle that is open in the center.

You could also staple or glue the ruffle to a paper plate that is small enough to be hidden when the vase is place on top of it.

This one is made of cloth, but you get the idea

I am having a hard time visualizing this! I’m not sure it would be a cohesive choice to incorporate fans with the center pieces. The vases with candles seem like they could make a good center piece on its own. Maybe use floating candles with water, and add some flower petals from your flower colors if you feel it needs a little something extra? Kind of like this? http://www-static.weddingbee.com/pics/62810/temp.jpg

It would also be less work than making a bunch of fans!

Could you line the bowls with the paper from fans (so it has the folded effect) and then put an LED inside the bowl to illuminate it, thus giving off some light.

This is an example of a lined bowl but with fabric. You could do the same with a fan

Or you could make something like this to go inside the bowl made with the fan

I would try and find a bunch of small, fan shaped stickers in white or something, and line the rim with them.

Or maybe, if your unable to add the to the centerpieces, you can work them into you place cards or table numbers?

@futuremrscap:  I found a pic of what I was picturing

This one is actually a paper fan placecard which,as the pp’s have suggested, you could also incorporate.

As you have already purchased your candles, I would stay away from lining the inside of the bowl with anything flammable.
