I don’t think having different centerpieces is tacky at all, I love the look of variety. However it does sound like a lot of pink! 🙂

I’m having trouble pictureing all this, but maybe don’t do pink crystals AND pink feathers, and maybe not having the eiffel tower prints on the candles.

Maybe you could draw this out. It sounds like a lot of elements, but that might not be a bad thing if done right. 

 

How long would the feathers be in the vases?

I like those feathers since they are such a light pink!

I dont think having two different centerpieces is a bad idea…mainly because I’m doing it as well! Some will have high centerpieces while other will have short!

Having the silver eiffel tower on half the tables and the eiffel tower vases on the others is fine.

The little votive holders with the eiffel tower print are cute, but I would use them on both the tables or use just plain votive holders.

The flutes with the gel would not work for me. I think they would compete with and take away from the silver eiffel towers.

I think your silver eiffel towers would look more elegant without the ribbon. Add a small arrangement of pale pink flowers inside the base of the silver eiffel tower.

The pink gel and pink feathers in the eiffel tower vases are fine.

That would leave you with pink flowers on some tables, and pink gel and pale pink feathers on the others.

I am personally not a fan of scattered rose petals but if you like them, go ahead.

@babudust:  You get much more impact with one concentrated hit  of color- like pink flowers under the silver eiffel tower, than you do if you scatter the color.

I agree about the flute gels. They’re nice but they wouldn’t really go with the centerpieces. They also look more like favors (they would be nice favors!)

I think having two difference centerpieces is fine as long as you tie them together such as using votives with both centerpieces as julies1949 suggested. 

I don’t think the ribbon threaded through the Eiffel Tower would work on itself, but perhaps if you threaded some through, and also threaded a few pink flowers here and there. Kind of like below, but not to the same extent (just wanted to show you a picture of flowers threaded through Eiffel Tower).

I love different centerpieces instead of all the same — in fact we have bought centerpieces for 8 of 12ish tables and so far there are 4 different pieces
