Maybe you could post pictures of your theme/colors and what types of decor you like. You could do half of the tables with flowers, and then half with candles and/or branches  from an arts & crafts store?

@MrsFeatherbottom: This is the inspiration for our centerpieces.  They are upside down wine glasses.  We will be using flowers in our colors and unscented candles. Going to try for candles in glass holders so we can light the candles and have no mess. We’re going to stick the candles to the wine glasses with rubber cement.  Also we found that you can get wine glasses really cheap at your local Goodwill or thrift shop, or just use what you have at home!

I love candles as part of the centrepieces, I think they add a lovely atmosphere to the night.

I am trying the same thing. There are two ideas I am going for:

1. A variety of vases or water glasses with or without someting at the bottom (led light, glass stones, pebbles, or nothing) and a flower ancored in the bottom so it is suspended in water with a floating candle. Either all vases looking like that or some mixed in with pillars.

2. The second idea was to DIY wild flowers in a large container and then have a variety of candles around the larger pot.

3. Growing herbs as a favour and using them as part of the centrepiece in a vareity of ways. The herbs provide the folliage while the candles can provide the colour.

Here’s the link to my pintrest if you’d like to browse some of the things I’ve found:

Your idea of sing the upside down wine glasses will work beautifully, alternating with your floral centerpieces. Just repeat one of the flowers from your floral centerpieces under the wine glasses. That will be an effective link.

you could cluster a few different sizes on a wood slab as this bee has suggested:
