I am also using lanterns as centerpieces. We have black tablecloths, champagne crinkly satin runners, and we’re surrounding the lanterns with mason jars w/candles inside. The pop of color for us is the turquoise napkins!

I kinda feel like the confetti/gems could cheapen the look of your centerpiece. I vote for white rose petals or a bunch of little candles. Or, check out this photos. You could do river rocks and mix it up with some live plants (succulents shown) or candles and flower petals. The river rocks alone would probably look nice, too.

Another suggestion is moss. It could be really pretty for an outdoor event.

FYI, flower petals are not too expensive. We have about 30 tables as well, and my florist can get a HUGE bag for like, $25.

Yay, I’m using that same lantern! We’re using mirrored tiles under them with 4 votives around it, to create more light/glow. We’re going non-floral as well as we’ve got 30+ tables, too. With your blue mats, maybe a few mirror pieces and candles would do the trick, especially outdoors in the evening, it will up the twinkle/glow of the lantern and candles (if you choose to use them).

ETA- We’re using electric tea lights for the lantern, since candles can make the tops really hot.

You could set the lantern on a log slice or make a box of old barnboard like this.

Then fill up the box with stones or moss. Maybe just add one flower or succulent as in the previous pic.

I’m not a big fan of the scattered petals or gems. To me it always comes across as trying to make a small centerpiece take up more space .

Here’s one on a tray of moss. You can get the trays at the dollar store.

You could use any greens from the garden to do this look
