I like the idea of short centerpieces.  I had them, although the ceiling at my venue wasn’t as high as yours. I used vases with submerged flowers and floating candles with votives and mirrors. Is there any way you can do half short and half medium or tall? Mixing centerpieces seems to be pretty popular nowadays. Do a mock up to see what it would look like with the food covers underneath the tablcloths just to be sure ahead of time. I think the short centerpieces evoke a romantic and elegant feel, so I think you will be just fine.

I’m also a fan of short centerpieces myself. I like that guests can actually see and talk to each other across the table without huge flowers in the way =). What you could do is do short centerpieces at varying heights. Have maybe one or two bowls directly on the table, and maybe another couple propped up. You could also mix in votives at multiple heights. The visual interest created by the multiple levels will break up any monotony about the low height but everything will still exist low enough for interaction.

if you want a bit a height, have you considered cake pedestals?

our ceilings are really high too, and FI & I have worried & even argued a bit (i like low, he likes super-high) but in the end, we are going w low bc of the cost. (i like to think i won lol). i think the size of the bowls youre describing & the intensity of the petals & candlelight will more than make up for the height. something about pans piled under the table cloth sounds weird to me… id just leave it short!
