We have chosen a location and its a restaurant, but I have a problem with choosing centerpieces. We are using the booths with the high backs and a few of the lower tables shown. We definitely want it to feel like a wedding and not a normally dinner party. I want some omph in the centerpieces as its going to be a new years eve celebration, but not sure if I should do low or high? Silver or Gold?

I would go with low because I think if you go with high it may make the space feel cramped. I also think you can do something gorgeous with low flowers and candles and still get across a formal vibe.

I think something short and sleek would look great. I’m tired of looking at the same centerpieces over and over (the orchids in water with a floating candle . . .). Anyhow, I saw a beautiful set up with orchids that was short but beautiful. There was a silver “tray” with 3 small square metal boxes set on it that were filled with river rocks and had one orchid inside. The orchid were HUGE, which they needed to be in order to make a statement.
I don’t know your style. That may be to “Zen” for you, but I’d suggest going to the library or the internet for vintage inspiration. In the 70s, yellow and daisies were trends. You may find some inspiration there.

we are having a long table in the back as the head table and were thinking of something along the lines of this for that centerpiece, but are at a lose for the other tables for the guests.
We are interested in structural, classic, very elegant yet minimal.

We used a mix of tall and short centerpieces for our recent wedding in December. I went back and forth whether I wanted tall or short, so I decided to go for a mix. The ceilings were tall in our venue, so I was scared of using all short centerpieces, but I was also hesitant to use tall centerpieces because I did not want to obstruct people’s view of each other and able to talk.
I used sola flowers to glue on the willow branches, and I made sola flower balls for the centerpieces. I loved them so much that I started making some to sell on ETSY afterwards just as a new hobby, but they aren’t too hard to do yourself if you have some time, and I would love to help anybody that is interested in making them! 🙂
