ifrancis:  You want to keep centerpieces short enough that they do not block your guests’ sightlines and hinder conversation. The only exception to this guidleine is if the centerpiece is very narrow like an Eiffel Tower vase.

Generally that meaans a centerpiece no higher than 12-14 inches.

ifrancis:  I am!  We are doing 7″, 9″ and 12″ on a round mirror with 3 votives surrounding that.  I was pretty adament about nothing taller than 12″ because I’ve been to enough receptions where I have to dodge the centerpiece to talk to the rest of the table!

ETA: I got the 7″ and 9″ vases from the dollartree a case at a time.  The 12″ came from Amazon and are much better quality but the others are still quite nice for only a $1 a piece!

We used 10″ cylinder vases on a round mirror, also with small votives and beads around it. We had pictures on the table as well, so there wasn’t a giant empty space around the centerpiece. We got them all at Michaels with coupons.
