Okay so I made my first pomander for the centerpieces…it looks like it will be too small for a big round table. Our idea is to do a pomander with 4/5 votives surrounding it.
This is 6″ round on a 4″ candlestick.
This one is 6″ on a 6 1/2″ candlestick.
I am thinking of doing a 10″ pomander (approximate size of a basketball I believe) or doing a grouping of 3 (one big and two small).
I just don’t want to have a small centerpiece on a big table 🙁

I’m not good with imaging how big the tables are- maybe you should try putting the poms on the actual table they’d be on? It’s hard to tell dimentions in a picture 🙂

I wish I could! I don’t have access to them 🙁

I think that would be a fairly small centerpiece… Instead of putting it on a short candle holder, can you find one of those super tall vases on Craigslist?
I think the ones I considered were Eifel Tower vases… There was a guy selling them for $5, and they were 3 feet tall and tapered (they didn’t actually look like the Eifel Tower…)
If you put a 10″ pomander on that, I think it would look very grand!

@ladydirtold: Put down a sheet on your living room floor. Draw a circle with chalk the diameter of your tables.
Set the table with your own china, cutlery and glassware.
See how the centerpice looks.
Remember you can always elevate the centerpiece on a stack of books, a box, a chunk of wood etc

@ladydirtold: As far as the first pic, I definitely don’t think that pomander is too small, if anything I think it’s too big for the short candlestick. The second pic, I think, looks perfectly proportioned. I would only use a bigger pomander on a much taller candlestick.
