I like the silver punch cups or sugar bowels better then the gold rimmed cups. If you don’t have enough, since they are similar in color you could always have some tables with the sugar bowels and other with the silver cups. 

However, do NOT put iridescent stones in the bottom, that will completely take away the look of the centerpeice. I would either tie some twine on the bottom of the vase to take away from the emptiness or if you do want to fill it, I would either fill with more sticks that flow to the sticks on top. Or a darker/neutral stone like this:

I like the tall centerpiece and plan to do something similar.  Ours will be filled with peaches, tho… Georgia Peach theme.

I would keep the book pages and the tall centerpiece and get rid of everything else.  I think you lose the drama of the tall centerpiece with all the other stuff around it. Maybe scatter some petals over the book pages and add a few mercury glass votives to tie in with the short centerpieces… but that’s it.

@NikkiKillpretty:  I think all your options work. The book pages are the only part that doesn’t work for me. I would look for an idea to make them look more purposeful- perhap s a runner rather than scattered pages.
