We are doing family style on rounds with eight per table, but I think our tables are 60 inchers.  How many people are you trying to fit on 48″ tables? 

My caterer recommended going tall and skinny to keep room on the table.  So I think we are going to do the submerged flower with floating candle tall vase thing and hope it doesnt take up too much room.  I want to keep centerpieces under 10″ tall and 8″ wide.

We’re planning on using our food as our centerpieces, mostly!  We’ll have some mason jars filled with red chili peppers scattered around as well, but the food should be enough for people to look at, especially since we’ll put dessert out too.

If you are worried about the table space, I would do tall candles. Something that has height, but that can be moved. People will move the centerpiece around if need be. And I’ve been to weddings where tealights on the outside of flowers get blown out and pushed under the flowers. Tealights are easy to move too. No harm there.

I’m thinking candles like this:

Something like that wouldn’t take up a lot of table space, dishes could be pushed up close to them. And guest could move them if needed to make more room.
