@Sa7208:  we’re pretty mush doing the same thing, but as most tables are 30″ wide and most plates are 10″ I wanted to make sure there was enough room to put things on the tables. If you crowd the table with center pieces you will have difficulty with the family style service.

Just for thought: we are doing beer bottles wrapped in yarn with a couple hydrangea stems in the bottle. We will have 2 – 8′ tables pushed together to have one large table (16 seats) each 8′ table will have 2 wine carafes (one red, one white), 8 mismatched plates, silverware, a bird nest salt and pepper shaker, 3 yarn bottles and a butter bowl.

I haven’t done a mock up yet, but I think we will have just enough space for family style.

If I was set on having lanterns, I wouldn’t go taller than 6″, maybe look at ikea? the lanterns they have on there might give you some good ideas.

You could line theses lanters in 3’s aling each table

 

Sort of like this but replace the vases with the lanterns with candles
