Ladies, I just purchased 20 of these 23 inch candelabras, one for each table. My venue has long oval tables and I am planning to place the candelabras in the center of each one. What else should I use to complete the look? Small candles? low centerpieces? Pillar candles? Should I alternate the decorations? Pictures would be particularly helpfull. Thank you.

Does your budget allow for flowers? I would probably alternate low floral centerpeices with these. I don’t know what your colors are, but you could always spray paint these a different color to add some extra flair.

We’re doing candelabras and the florist is attaching a flower cluster to the center and then scattering flower petals and candles on the table. The centerpieces will be like these (add more candles and flowers to the table)

you could spread out some rosepetals. concentrate them more at the base to hide the circle, and have them spread out more as you get closer to the edge of the table.
23″ is pretty big, though, so they would kind of speak for themselves without much more table decor.
are you going to have full place settings with glasses & coffee cups?

If your budget will stretch to include flowers, I would do low arrangements of flowers at either end of the table.
Rather than use petals you could unify the flower arrangements and the candelabra by stretching hardy greenery down the length of the table. Place only a few flowers in water picks amongst the greens.
This would cover the base of the candelabra in a much prettier manner.

@redhead46: WOW! These candelabras are absolutely gorgeous! I love how the flowers look with them too. Def inspiring. Thanks for posting.
@hopefloats: Yeah, I am thinking of spray painting them either gold or silver. Which color do you think?
@julies1949: This def looks like a good alternative, but I think I prefer flowers rather than the greenery. Any ideas for the low flower centerpieces?
I guess I shouldve mentioned that my colors are purple and pink (still don’t have the exact shade of purple I will be using). Thank you everyone and please keep posting your pictures.
