Be careful with tall centerpieces as they will block people’s view across the table. We had two tall lanterns that were moved to the ground to accommodate conversation and sightlines.

If your lanterns are on the shorter/smaller side, I’d suggest elevating them by setting a couple of bricks of floral foam on a large flat dish (with a slight lip) and the place the lanterns on top of the foam. From there, you can create a pretty flower base (or wreath) around the lantern without having to worry too much about water.

 

From our wedding last summer…

@smrlovingrl:  maybe you’ve already seen this picture, but I think it’s really simple and pretty by using candles, small vases and wood pieces to add height.

@Miss Mauverick:  pretty wedding pics! Very classy way of incorporating lanterns and the moss! I also love the sun sails and lights!

I had ikea lanterns as well, but I think mine are the smaller ones. My wedding was a winter wedding and I had rectangular tables. I placed pinecones around them and then had burgandy and plum rose petals with tea lights and small pinecones down both ends of the table.

Ours are pretty simple. Sorry about the background area. I wanted to put them on something white since the table cloths will be white.

The lanterns on shephard hooks would look really cute, but are you getting married in the evening? They may not be so functional in day light.
