I fell in love with cherry blossom centerpieces, super tall in glass cylinder vases. However, they are expensive! We’re thinking about doing a mix of the tall cherry blossoms and short centerpieces, to bring down the costs.
What are your thoughts on short AND tall? Has anyone done this or have pictures to share!? I’d love to see what it looks like put together in the reception (even if the flowers are different).

I LOVE the look of different heights throughout the reception. I think it looks really cool when some tables have a tall centerpiece and some have a short one. It saves money, and looks nice. Go for it.

I think its a great idea! Brides do it all the time!

I LOVE the look of having different height centerpieces and we did this for my reception. We had 16 tables with 6 tall, 5 medium and 5 small centerpieces and it looked great (and was much more affordable).

I agree, different heights look very nice.
I’ve seen it done two ways. Some people will alternate tables with a tall next to a short. Other people have tall ones on the perimeter of the reception hall and short ones in the middle. Both look lovely.

Yep, we had short and tall centerpieces! I loved the look in the room and adding in the short centerpieces was definitely a budget saver.
We actually arranged them like a X. The tall centerpieces criss-crossed through the room and all others were short.

I think it is a super cute way ot save some money. I like the idea of doing the tall ones in an X as well!

I am not a fan of tall centerpieces but I love love the short ones above.

I am doing half and half (short and tall) to help with costs and I love the mixed look! I say GO FOR IT!

I’m doing half and half too, but not to save money. The short centerpieces will actually cost slightly more than the tall! 🙂
