@antonellibride:  Where is your venue?  And what’s your color scheme? 

ETA: I wasn’t sure if the above colors of the journal were what you would be using. 🙂

Oh! Perfect idea for centerpieces, do black manzanita branches with hanging votives and flowers (real or faux). It would look stunning, and possibly not too expensive. Easy to DIY too.

P.S. I love the ikea lanters! We spaced some on our food tables with lit candles for ambiance and atmosphere.

@antonellibride:  i think light and plants will be your best friends for this.  I assume you’re having an evening reception (hence the moonlit portion), so I would check with your venue about very low lighting and using the alternative lighting sources as the mainstays (the lanterns).  Also, plants!  can you incorporate plants and water somehow?  I would just use real plants, like potted ferns and areca palms.  You can add little lights in them to make it look like fireflies.

for water, perhaps a big clay plant pot bottom (I forgot what they are actually called) filled with water and floating flowers, surrounded by tealight candles.

You could raise the lanterns on a slab of wood,

or hang them from a  hanger like this

                        

surround them with some river rock and suculents- you can even hollow out this type of succulent and insert tea lights

something like this under a hanging lantern would be beautiful

go out now and buy up lots of mini lights on clearance after Christmas

You could use large branches anchored with plaster of paris in pots or buckets

You could cut irregular stepping stone shapes out of an end roll of floor covering and make a garden path coming into the reception

I love your colours and theme!

Why not decorate the entrance or create a walkway with the lanterns..something like this…

Or if you want to use them as a centerpiece, this picture is a beach theme, but you could easily switch up the sand for rocks, and find accenting flowers, in a pot or vase arrangement, and create your own version…

I like the idea of a lantern with candle hanging above a low floral centerpiece. Or for non-floral centerpiece, you could use two lanterns, placing them on top of stacks of books or something of varying heights.
