Ok, here go’s!
(I have no idea why its sideways and please excuse tacky plastic flowers)
i love the antiquey feel, I’ve horded collected lots of brass candstick holders, frames and crystal vases.
my idea is to have 2 candlesticks ( 1 large 1 small) and 2 vases ( 1 with roses small with baby’s breath or heather), and a frame with a vintage frame of a map ( mine or fiances city’s).
im thinking of placing them on a doilie or lace placemat.
what do you think? Any ideas other than what I’m thinking of for flowers?
also due to candle flame restrictions I’m having to enclose flames in these pegged votives, I’m having a hard time finding them, any ideas on how to stick glass flat bottom votives onto candlestick holders?:)

You could try the self stick Velcro tabs for the votives. My guess is you don’t want to permantly affix.
I would do 2 of the candlesticks & one vase for one table, then two vases, one candlestick on another. A nice related, yet varied look that won’t be as crowded. But, it’s hard to tell if it would be (depends onsizer of tables, etc).
Very pretty. Love the framed maps.

With a variety of collected vases, candlesticks and frames, I don’t think you need to vary the numbers of each on the tables. They will already look different. With 2 candle sticks (tall and short), 2 vases(tall and short) and one frame, you have an odd number of items , which is pleasing to the eye.
If you don’t care about being able to remove the votive holders from the candlesticks, you can use E6000 glue to give a strong bond.
