Honestly, we had 6′ rounds and by the time you add all of the plates, chargers, bread plates, silverware, dishes, napkins, waterglasses, wine glasses, salt and pepper shakers, etc, there really isn’t THAT much room in the center for a centerpiece.  I think a Hydrangea head in a vase would be perfect.  Alternatively, if you are looking for a bit more height and/or presence, you could add a book or upsde down square vase at the base of the round vase and drape it with a napkin.

you should see if your venue can do a mock table setting. Mrs. Corn is right , once the table is set you may not need anything else.

I second (third) Mrs. Corn and BunnyBlue… check it out before you spend money on more. To tell you from experience, I now have TOO MUCH stuff in the middle of my table and it looks squished. We’re working on pruning it down….


If you still think you need SOMETHING, stick with the one vase per table and surround it with a few tealights or votives candles that are spread out a bit. If you get the glass votives, you could jazz them up with pink/black ribbon! Sounds like you’d want to go for more horizontal fullness than vertical height, you know?
