Im in need of some help brides!!! For my reception we are using rectangular tables instead of the more traditional round tables. For my centerpieces I know I want to use pomanders,candles,butterflies,tall vases, and rose petals. How can I put this together to create something beautiful. Our colors are lavender,coral, and silver. Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated and pics would be even greater. Thanks

@lmonique: nice name 😉
Do you have any images of what you’re thinking about? or Flower choices made?
This could be pretty… http://mikadoweddings.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/pomander_centerpieces.jpg

@itsm0nique: I was thinking about using open silk roses or hydranges.

@lmonique: I think when trying to use that many things on the table it is best to create visual interest or else it will look too busy.
I’d alternate the height of the pomanders along with alternating the sizes of your vases and candles.
On long tables I think pomanders look really pretty just going straight down the middle too without any vases

Okay, since you’re losing long tables, I wouldn’t use any really tall centerpieces – to me tall ones will look really strange sitting next to smaller candles. But that’s just me.
Here’s what I could come up with for you :
Have the taller pomanders as the main centerpieces, here’s an idea, [there are TONS out there if you google them]
Get some butterfly picks, or brooches and add them to the pomanders in a few areas.
For the rest of the table, add your candles [you can do taper, tealight, or pillar], and put rose petals around each candle.
We are personally using 8 ft banquet tables.. we’ll be alternating centerpieces between 12″ martini glasses filled w/ led lights & toppers with flowers, and 11″ cynlinder vases filled with flowers. We’ll also be using a mix of 6, 7, and 8″ tealight candles, and taper candles. We also have pink & black table scatter.
