For a pop of color, you could do low vases of flowers in your color, evenly spaced between the candles that are shown.  A dozen grocery store rozes is usually about $10 and 7-9 roses fit nicely in a low bubble vase from the dollar store.

I would just get flowers in a nice colour and put them in small vases along the tables. That is really all the space needs!

@sheepandbear:  I would just pick a nice color then, maybe red, to stand out against the white? Just roses, cut close to the top of the vase for a little clustered look.  Something like this, but no fillers:

I just looked at your other post about your ceremony decor and you could even put a little feather butterfly in with the roses to tie it in.  I did that with my bouquet because we got married in a park.

Thanks!  I got them at Michael’s, in the fake fruit/fake birds section.  I think it was $5 for 3 of them, and they come on little pieces of floral wire.  They have all different colors.  You can order them online too… they’re called feather butterflies because the wings are made with feathers and painted.

 @sheepandbear: These would be pretty and springy! 🙂 I like the bottom ones without the candles. And you can’t go wrong with roses and hydrangeas. 🙂

@sheepandbear:  What a beautiful, intimate venue. I agree with previous posts, it doesn’t need much – the walls already provide a nice contrast with the tablecloths. A few little vases of flowers on the table should give it some colour – pretty reds and oranges would work well with the rich colours of the walls/ceiling. You could also try tying a coloured organza ribbon around each of the napkins in a plain colour similar to your flowers – cheap and very easy.

I would just do candles, or low centerpieces and suggested.

@sheepandbear:  I’d just go with what you have for linens and keep the arrangements low.

What about something like this? I always think it looks pretty to have multiple small arrangements going down the center of long tables

or you could use lots of candles
