Try doing some paper decorations in your colors to accent the main focus of the centerpiece. Judging from the inspiration picture, the main focus is very pretty! You could do origami lilies or tissue paper flowers, or just put sparkly confetti around the centerpiece. Or you could have a pretty mat for it to sit on, or a charger to reflect the candle flame. Once the tables are filled with plates, glasses, napkins, silverware, etc you will see that there is not too much space in the middle that you NEED to fill!

Good luck!

I would have some of the green denonbrium orchids floating in that vase!  Along with the white flowers!  And have some black and white crystals holding them down at the bottom.

Also, maybe a damask patterned tablecloth or a black table cloth with a black and white patterned placemat and napkin on black and white plates?

Here’s an idea.

Bellenga and I are on the same page! I immediately thought damask….. and orchids (my faves) are you diy the centerpieces or hiring a florist?

Thanks Crebre80!  But the thing about black and white and patterns is that they can be really “busy” if not done exactly right.

I’d talk to a florist or a caterer to get table setups done beforehand.  The black and white is a popular color combo now and a classic one!  The infusion of the apple green is a refreshing idea and I think it will definitely make it pop more!

Jizes,

Those vases look cool but one thing is that they are so tall- it might make it difficult for people at the table to see one another?  What do you think?  Perhaps the same idea could be done in a smaller vase?

Oh the venue is super cute, I don’t know why I missed the pics before. Is it just your ceremony happening there, or your reception as well? See along the edges where there are string lights hanging? And on the other side there are the eaves of the building? You should run fish wire along there and hang paper poms! I think it would look so nice! Or you could hang the ever popular paper lanterns. Is it going to be at night? You could have the poms or lanterns hanging right from the strings, and with them lit it would give a nice warm glow.

Try finding an aisle runner? You could buy fabric in bulk and do it yourself. Its just straight lines, anyone with a sewing machine could pull it off I think. Edge the aisle runner with something easily picked up like garland or palm fronds.

I think its gonna look great, even with no decorations its already pretty!

Love the pix that you just posted!! I think that those would be fairly easy to DIY.  As for the table squares, you may be able to purchase them from a recent bride for around the price you’d be making them for.  Check the classifieds here.
