Why would it look tacky?

I think if you have a collection of them at each table (like, at least four), plus maybe some flower petals, they would be a complete centerpiece. I might buy one smaller pillar or larger votive candle in a vase per table to bulk it up, but not necessary.

no that would look awesome, especially with petals maybe throw in a few at a different height or get some risers or something so it adds a little contrast for your eye, but that’s awesome and easy and budget friendly, I say go for it!

I love the idea of a candles only centerpiece. Although, I think the more the merrier- so as many as you can split up between tables would look better rather than just 3-4 per table.

you could also try placing them on mirrors …. OR: use them inside small lanterns (home made or store bought). ….. in any case, there’s nothing tacky about votive candles.

I think it would look great.  I will tell you this, though – for whatever reason, it seems like people like to play with votives – the melted wax, tilting them, etc.  I went to an outdoor anniversary party, and there was wax on almost every table (from people playing with the mini votives).  

If you could add some height to them, I think it would be great, but even on the table, all lit up, would be lovely!

I think it would look simple and sophisticated. There are so many things you can do to doctor it up if it’s too simple for you. But in my opinion, votives are great alone!

i think it would look classy and elegant, especially if you add some rose petals!

You can also surround them with river rocks if you don’t want to go the flower petal route 🙂

I think it’s a great idea.  Another idea would be to put them on top of a mirror.  It sort of “doubles” the amount of candles you actually have on the table.

the pictures that i was thinking have already been posted!! i like them with candles strewn about… what other items will be on the table?  If you could do a few tall pillar type candles that would be really cool as well. wal-mart sells the cylinders for really inexpensively as does the dollar tree.
