I tried it out tonight and this is my result!
(sorry, for some reason I can’t imbed pics in my post)
Anyway, my sister-in-law had offered to let us use the leftover wine glasses they used as favors for their wedding (my family owns a winery, so that’s how we’re able to get wholesale etched glasses). While we already decided not to go this route with our favors, after seeing these results I’m thinking of getting just a few to put maybe one on each table just with our monogram on them. I love how it basically projects onto the shade.
This is with an etched glass from my brother’s wedding, but I think if you found some glasses and used the etching cream or some sort of paint for glass you could achieve the same effect.
We’re inviting about 250 to our wedding, so hopefully get a final count of 200 or so, but what else could go with these as centerpieces? I was thinking of doing a couple per table, but would that be too much? Maybe I should alternate the tables with these and other centerpieces.

They look beautiful. Where are the leaves coming from? Are they etched on the glass too – or just the names? I like these even better than the example posted on the boards yesterday. Are you having round or rectangle tables? You could probably have more "lamps" with a rectangle table as I didn’t really like the picture with a bunch in the center of a round table… probably 3 max on a 10-12 person round? BTW, so sorry – check is in the mail!

Wow, that looks great! Maybe you could put some green vines going alone the table by them; especially on the long tables.

thanks for the input! The leaves are the same I’m using on our invitations, I used illustrator and placed them on the template pdf provided, changed the opacity to about 20% and printed it out onto the vellum. Also, I used a gold vellum to go more with our fall color scheme.
We’re probably going to have a mix of round and rectangular tables because of the layout of the room.
