Hi – I am thinking about having both high and low centerpieces at my reception. For the high centerpiece, I would like to use cherry blossoms with hanging candle votives. For the low centerpieces, I would like to use a combination of pink tulips with orange orchids. I thought that having tables set up with either a high or low centerpiece may give the feel of a garden at the reception hall,
Has anyone used two different arrangements for their high and low centerpieces? Do you think this will look weird or should I stay with 1 type of floral arrangement for both high/low centerpiece?

I love the look of alternating high and low arrangements but i think having completely different arrangement may look a little funny… cherry blossoms with votives are a lot different than pink tulips and orange orchids. can you incorporate all flowers? they dont have to be all the same but maybe "flow" together

Keeping similar colors will help your theme be well incorporated. For instance, you can use orange colored votives, that will play off the orange orchids, or pink table linen that will pull all the pinks together.
There is no rule against having different centerpieces, and if anything it’s great for dramatic effect. By you choosing what you like, it ensures that the reception is reflective of your personality.

personally i love it! the pink of the cherry blossoms tie in the pink tulips of the low and the orange orchids are a nice splash of a contrasting color. everything does not have to MATCH perfectly to create a nice effect. in fact, i think the contrast should have a nicer effect than not.

Thanks everyone! I think I will go with the high/low idea (using different flowers)…I’m hoping it’ll look great! 🙂

your best bet would be to make a "mock-up" version – then you’ll know for sure if you like it or if you suddenly gravitate towards something else!
happy planning and goodluck!
