I definitely like the darker box.  It make a big difference.

Will the table have silverware and glasses on it or just napkins?  Because one the table is set, it might not look so empty. 

Perhaps keep the center flower white, but put red flowers tucked into each napkin?  (It may turn out to be a lot of flowers)

Something along the lines of:

Or what about using some of the votive holders more like bud vases?  Then the additional flowers would offer color?

If it’s in your budget, a sage overlay would look great.  It would make it look more finished, I think.  But if you get the sage overlay, I think you should leave the beads clear.  Staining the boxes sounds great, in the pictures you linked to the cherry colored boxes really looked good.  What about a nice red dahlia for the flower?  Here’s a pic

I pretty much agree with the above comment, stain the boxes, green overlay and a red flower.  Have you thought of putting red rose petals on the table?  Depending on the overlay you could still use the green napkins, especially if it is a sheer overlay.

What about putting a metal pick in the green grass with the table number at the end that is matted in red paper?  Just a thought to add height and color to the table.

I love the grass, candles and boxes, great job!!
