Also, consider how much space tableware will take up- my venue actually suggested I make my arrangements smaller so all the plates and whatnot would fit!

capitalbee:  The hardest thing to do is to visualize something that isn’t there.

Do you have a party rental or linen rental place where you live? If yes, I suggest you go there, act like a potential customer and have them set up a banquet table with place settings and centerpieces like you are considering. It will help you with space planning.

If you don’t have access to such a business, fold a sheet to the proper dimensions on the floor and set it up with your own dishes, cutlery , stemware etc. Don’t forget to add the extras like salt and peppers, and butter dishes. Play with your tablescape elements until you get something you like. Keep in mind that odd numbers of vases and candles are usuallly easier on the eye than even numbers.
