Mirrored plate, votive candles and purple rose petals sprinkled around a tall cyclinder vase filled with water and plums (or any purple fruit I find) with large silver gray ostrich feathers coming out of the top in what I can only refer to as a Plume.
Similar to this:

I love ostrich feather centerpieces, but I think your idea is a bit of overkill. Feathers, candles, petals, and fruit, oh my! The mirrored base and the votive candles might be nice, everything after that just takes away from the elegance of the feathers.

yeah the candles and the petals are on the entire table. We have very large round tables so I’m trying to come up with something that is drama and will not be dwarfed by the tables.
And the fruit would be sliced up, that’s necessary. My fiance fell in love with fruit centerpiece he saw last weekend, so I’m working it in.
Candles and roses will only be on the cake table as well.

Would it be possible to work in the fruit centerpieces separately. For things like the head table (in addition to the feather centerpieces), gift table, guestbook table, etc.?

Maybe you could alternate the tables to tone it down a bit? Like fruit on one table and then the feathers and mirrors on the next one over?
I agree, it seems a little busy, but maybe that’s just how I’m picturing it in my head…

Clearly this shows I need to read the posts before I hit submit 🙂 The last two posts leave much to be desired. @abrideagain that is exactly what I was thinking.
Every other table has the feather plumes in a tall long vase and with candles and petals low on the table.
Every other table has big squat vases with purple fruit (plums, berries, etc) filled with water and then petals and candles on the table
Every table has the mirrored plate to reflect the candles and displays to look larger then they are.
Is that clearer 🙂

Check out http://www.save-on-crafts.com/feathervases.html, they have directions and the material you need to complete a look that is somewhat similar

Personally, I really hate the feathers. But that’s just me.
