I am thinking about my centerpieces right now, and I was wondering what everyone thinks! This is my inspiration photo
The venue where my reception will be has two different sized tables, one seats 6 people and one seats 8, and I have both 12″ and 14″ mirrors to put under the vases (12″ for 6 people tables, 14″ for 8 people). Here are my questions:
1. Should I do the centerpieces for the different sized tables differently? I was thinking possibly do just like the photo for the 8 ppl tables and do an eiffel tower vase that’s 16″ instead of 12″ for the 6 ppl tables and no other vases, just 4 candles around the vase with the hydrangea. Would that look okay or should I keep them the same even though the mirrors will be different sizes?
2. Should I do a navy table runner to go under the mirror or will it be okay without? Our colors are mint and navy, and I thought that it would look nice with a table runner but now I think it might look a little bit busy.
Thanks for your opinions!

I love mint and navy! How about both navy tables with mint runners and mint tables with navy runners? And larger tables = larger centerpieces

I would do the same centerpiece for all tables, but that’s just an individual preference. You do what you like.
I think a navy runner would look great- not too busy at all.

I would do them all the same (with the different sized mirror since you already have them). The difference in size between a table for 6 and a table for 8 is really not that great. But, if you think the bigger mirror looks a bit bare you could add one extra tealight candle around the base.
Are the tables round or rectangle. Personally I don’t like the look of round tables with a table runner, so if they are round I wouldn’t use one, but on a rectangle table I think navy table runners would look great!

They are round tables, I was thinking it might look a little strange too, since the runner would visually cut the table in half, but I wasn’t sure. Thanks for your opinion! And now that you mention it, I think it will look fine with all the tables having the same centerpiece. 🙂
