I saw this picture and fell in love!!!! It’s so romantic!! But I’m stuck because my tables are round instead of long. How do I make this work?? I have candles that will be in a little clear ‘vase’ that’s about 3 inches tall.
If I get two bunches of roses and a bunch of hydranges in the middle and line them up…would that take up too much room? Should they be lined up at 12:00, 4 and 8?
Hydrangeas in the middle and have shorter roses in 4 ‘corners’ around them? (maybe kind of pushed against the bottom of the hydrangeas?) With the candles, would that be too busy?
I’ve seen pictures of roses and hydrangeas together and if the roses aren’t opened wide, it looks funny (IMO)
I’m starting to really dislike centrepieces. Sigh.

I’m trying to figure out how to do this also, i love this idea.

@lindsayl22: Gorgeous! But my candles are short 🙁

Couldn’t you just put them in a circular grouping rather than a line? Mix the vases of flowers with different heights of candles in the center.
I really like those centerpieces!

@Mrs. Fireworks: I already bought candles but they are short, darnit! I had a different centrepiece in mind and the candles were going to be scattered on the table. I was just contemplating what if I got a little stand or something for them….but these candles are small. they’re 10 hour candles but are basically votive candles:
Unless I go to the dollarstore and find some candleholders, they’ll be hidden anyways, right? But then I’ve wasted money on the little glass holders. I think they’d look weird to have such small candles in small holders in the middle of the table…I think??
Unless I can sell the candles and holders I have, then I would need to find CHEAP pillar candles that ship cheaply to Canada

I would do one large hydrangea, one small rose, and 3 small candles. Do you already have the candle holders that you posted, or just the candles themselves? Are you also doing table numbers?

As you’re arranging it 2 things,
1.) Don’t try to make it symetrical on all sides
2.) Consider that you have 4ish “fronts” and arrange things at different heights and then sit on all sides of it to make sure it’s a pleasant view. 🙂

You can get the same look – just use smaller vases and keep all one flower in each vase.
Odd numbers look better to the eye so do 3 vases of different shapes and heights and keep the size of the vases proportional to your candles.
