i love the candalabra.  you can do flowers at the base or around the top.

make sure that your venue allows open flames (these do not have votive holders).

i found these ideas

I think it would look pretty with a light pink cloth draped around the base, and a few loose blossoms/petals scattered on it.  It would add a soft floral touch, but keep that nice clean streamlined look you have.

I think  it would look awesome if you put little tufts of flowers where the candles are and then put candles around the base. This would be great if your venue doesnt allow open flame outside of a holder and I think it would give you that clean look you are going for with a little something extra.

@KelannaDC:  depends on how much color you want.  Tulle would add a super soft touch of color to the table, where a more opaque fabric would be a little brighter pop of color.  I think tulle would be nice with brighter colored flowers, or a brighter fabric with softer colored flowers.

@KelannaDC:  Not if they are spread out far enough away. My centerpice vases were about 12 inches high with TONS of flowers on top and I had votives on the tables and none of my flowers burned. I think you’ll be okay. If you are nervous about it, get some cheap flowers at the gas station and set up some candles around it just to double check!

If you still need some lighting maybe consider those flameless battery candles dressed up with some lace wrapped around them? I have seen some pictures on pinterest where they were not noticeable.
