I think it sounds like a perfect size.  While 10 people can definetely fit at a 60" round, it does get a little tight.  Once you get all the plates, silverware, glasses, etc., on the tables you wont wont a HUGE centerpiece taking up more space.  If you get something that is 12-15" high, people wont be able to see over it, so 10" high is a good height.  And it wont look dinky surrounded by the votives.

I think that sounds great!  My caterer is providing 12" square mirrors.  When I first saw the mirrors (not on a table) I thought they’d look way too small for the space.  Our centerpieces will be candles so I was planning on using 5 of them.  After our tasting I realized that 3 fit nicely on the 12" mirror, and are the perfect size.  I wouldn’t go too big.  As <span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: bold”>naagel55 pointed out, you don’t want it to look cluttered once everything is on the table!

I’m having a similar issue. My centerpiece is 14" high, 5" in diameter at the base and 17" at the top. I’m a little worried that the the table will look a little empty.

I can’t really put any votives around the base because my centerpiece is mainly made of paper. I don’t want to add flowers or petals because that’ll really jack up my cost. 

Any thougths?
