I LOVE This idea. We are doing lanterns as well (not this kind, but more decorative). We are doing some votive candles with ours, and that could certainly take up some empty space. You could also try spreading flower petals around the lanterns too or getting a smaller floral wreath.

I am a fan of less is more, so I appreciate just adding small touches.

I would say that it at least needs flower petals. I’m all about minimalist, but the lantern is too big to stand alone.  It needs something to transition the space down to the table, if that makes sense.

My centerpieces are going to be pretty simple too! I had posted a pic of them & got a lot of responses saying it was too plain…but I like doign it simple! Alot of Brides have these huge detailed centerpieces & I think it’s nice to have something simple but pretty! I think maybe you could scatter some flower petals or decorative beads around the bottom of the lantern if you think they are too plain. I like it though! 🙂

I really love plain centerpieces too!  I will be having probably just small hydrangea center pieces.  I think if you wanted to add something special you could add votive candles around it. But I LOVE the minimalist look.  I think a lot of centerpieces can look overdone (not to offend anyone, just my opinion) so I love this look.

Looks good! I would maybe add something to tie the pieces together, like a small tray? It would bind the two elements together.

I like the general idea, I what about a few stems of single flowers in cute jars? Or one sprig of hydrangia in a small/low container?

I feel like just the lantern and the number are missing something…

I like the idea, but I think you may need a little bit more.  Possibly something just small like a few tealights or votives around it, or some flowers. Another option may be just incorporating a flower or two into the top handle of the lantern or around the base just to add a little bit of interest to the lantern.

This is what my BIL did, but this would prob cost as much as your other tables. Is there anything train themed you could add to the table like train parts or toy trains?

 they are cute but you can also add train themed items or key scattered to the tables.. i think its just a tad to plain but i love the idea speically with the flowers.. 

OR you could add a ribbon to each lantern o go fo fake flowers around the lanterns.

 

good luck!

I think it does need a little something more.  I like the idea of some smaller votive candles around the lantern.

@BluegrassBridetoBee:  I can ask my BIL where he got them. How many do you need, he might have a few still.

What about these?

Or use these as favors and sprinkel them around the table
