So I’ve fallen with two different centerpiece ideas and i was wondering if it would be possible to have both.
The first is just lovely and simple:
The second incorporates the festive reds my parents want but it still looks relatively modern and elegant (we wont’ be doing the gold chargers and cutlery):
We’re not expecting to have more than 10 tables of 8 (and every likely less). The venue is quite small but it’s a lovely property out in the country with gorgeous gardens and we’re aiming to provide our guests with a relaxing evening of good food, wine and jazz. Will having either or both work? Will having 5 of one work and 5 of the other ‘blend’? And, this is possibly a bizzare question, but would people be bothered by the fact that they’re at a table with a less extravagant centerpiece? argh…

If you are only having 8 tables why not incooperate both centerpieces to one? you coul do the second picture maybe 3 small flower pots with some of the first picture leaves in between them and some candles! That would look really good and wont be costly. Plus me as a guest might think the table where Im sitting if you choose to do some like this and some like that will think my table is less fancy so i think you should incooperate both together to make all 8 tables loo symmetrical and special

@Pixel8: I think you could combine those very nicely.

I think you coudl do either – incorporate them into one or use one on 5 tables and the other on the other 5 tables.
We had 15 tables and had 3 different centerpieces.

I would incorporate the floral arrangements and candles on each table.

@Pixel8: Haha, when I first saw your title…I totally thought of the You Tube series of “Will it Blend?” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0ImibHwYqU
Anyway, to your question…I agree with julies1949.

I think those two ideas would blend together beautifully

@likewoah: It is pretty hilarious. There are many more videos on You Tube as well!

@Pixel8: Definitely. You could have the flowers and the candles along the table, with some leaves scattered around (but maybe slightly less than in the picture, otherwise they will “compete” with the flowers). It’ll look great.

@bmo88: THIS. I just jumped in here to say this. And then I had a hilarious mental image of someone tossing all the centerpieces into a blender.
And to answer the original question, yes, I think they’ll blend beautifully. 🙂

I think both a stunning but the styles are quite different. The greenery is soo simply, earthy and clean looking. The little pots of roses have a vintagy, victorian afternoon tea feel.
What kind of effect are you going with for your wedding overall?

@bmo88: LOL, i was definitely referencing this 😛 Also, I believe in this instance we’d end up with some kind of wierd green smoothie with lumps of wax and rosepetals in it – the breakfast of bridezillas champions!
@AnotherMrsBrown: I’m really hoping to go with elegant and slightly formal and i’m worried putting both together on the same table might just be a bit too much. I might try it out with smaller flower vessels and votives instead of pillars. I actually wonder if long tapers might not look better with the flowers….hmmmm…
thanks everyone for the advice and ideas though 😀 I’ll scurry away and I might do some mock ups and report back…

Pixel8: I think that tapers would keep it more formal looking, and go better with the roses. The pillars and leaves are beautiful, but they are more of a rustic vibe

bmo88: LMAO. Yes they all blend, except Chuck Norris.
