Find the visual line for seated guests by setting your elbow on the table. The height at the tips of your fingers would be the approximate visual line. It is also a good idea to check your arrangement by sitting at the table with someone across from you to see if it is a hindrance.

Center pieces can be taller as long as the vase is slim-hence the evolvement of trumpet vases, branch centerpieces etc.

Even if you have a very tall centerpiece the vase part in the center will still block peoples views. THe only way not to block views is to have low centerpieces!

@Melini: Always remember in life, there is no “ONLY” way to do things. A slim vase does not obstruct conversation. If you had a vase or an arrangement that was as wide as a person’s face, that would be obstructive.
