Do you have a color scheme that you would prefer?

White, as you suggested would certainly work in all the rooms.

The challenge is that the rooms are all colonial but all so different. Being the frugal decorator that I am, I would use their centerpieces as a starting point. I would change out the candles and the florals at the bottom so each room had a unique centerpiece suited to the room.

The Tavern dining  room is rustic-you could use the hurricane vase and candle on top of a wooden charger plate, with something like nuts or cranberries around the candle.

The Potomac Dining Rom is more elegant. One idea would be to adhere the pillar candle to the bottom of the centerpiece with florist putty, then add water and floating pale pink flowers. Use their floral base or add some babies breath to it.

For the lafayette room I would use the vase with a pillar candle and add hydrangeas in floral picks to their floral bases or use silk flowers- use more blue and lavender hydrangeas

For the Betsy Ross Room- depending on the age of the kids and whether or not there wll be any adults in the room, I would do something more whimsical. If the kids are older and you think the vases would be safe

If the kids are younger and the glass vase would be at risk

I would use the mantels to diplay wedding pics of the parentst and other close relatives, or pics of the two of you as children. I would add in a small arrangement using whatever flower was used in the room.
