I would lose the purple flower. It looks out of place. Will the owls be on every table or are you putting different animals on each one?

I recently went to a wedding with a similar seating arrangement (it was by location, such as Table Paris, Table Rome) and it was a beezy to find my table.  I had to look at every table to find mine.  But, it was a relatively minor inconvenience. 

I would try adding some votives on the outside of the leaf wreath and see how that looks.  Or add a charger or something similar underneath the centerpiece.  I love that purple flower.  Don’t ditch it. Also, if it looks too small, do remember that there will be a lot of other things on the table such as plates, glasses and silverware.  You don’t want to clutter it too much with your centerpiece.

Here’s my fall centerpiece.  It was compact, like yours and I added things around and underneath to add dimension.

I think you have done a great job! The only change I would make is to add one smaller flower, a color somewhat less dark than the purple to tie the purple in with the other colors. Also,  three of anything is easier on the eye than just the two flowers.

Your centerpiece is all about nature and fall colors- a mirror has no place in that.

I wouldn’t worry about the scattered leaves and maybe even the pumpkins (unless you can find some way smaller and tuck them in among the ones surrounding the lantern). Everything will get lost and pushed out of the way once the tables are set up. You may want to get some of your own dishes,glasses, silverware and napkins and do a mock up of just how crowded it may look and then decide what you really need.
