I think your idea for arrangements will look really nice! As for the tables I like satin or tafeta in GREEN

I think the brown with the green over would be nice.  Are you wondering about the arrangements now?

what is the lighting going to be like in your venue? your inspiration photos all have a very light quality to them, even though the medicine bottles are dark.  have you considered a colored overlay over a white table cloth?  and if you can’t decide between brown or green going half and half?  personally, because the bottles themselves have such dark, rich color i would want them highlighted on a lighter base – so in my mind half green/half brown bottom cloths with white overlays for the centerpeices to pop off of would look fantastic!  then you could easily do half/half brown/green napkins and alternate – so brown underclothed tables get green napkins and vice versa.  just a thought.  as far as the shiny materials and organzas – they seem like very delicate/fancy materials but the vibe i get from the medicine bottle centerpieces is a bit more earthy/casual.  so, again personally, i would choose cotton/linen cloths.

good luck!

oh, and as far as arranging – i would stick with varying heights of bottles together and in odd numbers.  otherwise, informally grouping them with that in mind will make them look fantastic!

What about using a small bunch of peach and lavender roses  and some green mini poms (or something similar)  in a slightly larger antique glass container, and then use your small bottles with small sprigs of lavender or babys breath around the central floral arrangement?

*Deep breath*!

I think mixing and matching different sizes/heights/shapes of bottles would be very pretty! I can see why you love your original inspiration photos and you can still incorporate that! Have you considered old-fashioned milk bottles or vintage-y jars as well? I’m thinking something a bit bigger to be in the center of the med bottles.

good luck!
