I love cranberries in water with a candle or two!

Or with a floating candle.

I like bright fruit in baskets or vases (like apples or pears or pomegranites)

I like the idea of using Christmas ornaments or globes in cluster. You can get any color like that. Or maybe something like Miss Preztel has going? Ribbons and lanterns?

We’re going with 8″ led paper lanterns and made a more substantial “tablescape” by including little picture frames, our table number and a round placemat.  Our colors are pale pink, black and white, so this isn’t the most colorful example, but I think you could easily swap in whatever brighter combinations that you wanted.

(ignore the mess in the background and the lack of pictures in the frames–this was a very quick mock-up)

Thanks!  I’m pretty pleased how they turned out.

The tables are the big, round 8-10 people ones.  To figure out the size, I looked back at some old threads about floral centerpiece sizes and it seemed like most people were recommending that you stick to something less than 12″ high so people can still see over them while they’re seated.  Adding the placemat made the whole set up a little wider and more pulled together.  I think the amount of space taken up by this centerpiece will be all right and not look too small once all the glasses, plates and such are on the table.
