My vendor sprung on me this wknd that we’re doing round tables instead of banquet tables. This totally screws up my vision, which was supposed to go like this:
Brown tablecloths, green runners, and vintage medicine bottles (FH’s family are pharmacists):
Now I don’t know what to do with round tables. I feel like groupings of bottles will be too sparse. Should I put the bottles on something? Or put a lantern with them? I can’t think of anything to do without it just looking like a couple of bottles thrown onto a table. Help, creative bees! 🙁

Can you ask your vendor if the tables can be switched out to the banquet ones?

Our centerpieces are kind of similar in sizing to yours. We’re doing one teacup potted with two succulents, a milk glass vase with flowers and our table numbers which are white pedestal frames. In order to give it more presence on the round tables we have to use we’re putting the teacup on top of three stacked, vintage hardcover books. We’re using books that we love and have meaning in our lives. The books, I think, pull our whole look together.

I would just keep the same idea only use an odd number of medicine bottles grouped in the center of each table. If you feel it is too sparse, add a small round placemat (they have cute ones at Cost Plus World Market, if you have one in your area) underneath them. I think it will actually have MORE impact than the original banquet tables.

I would do the same thing but use a lot of the bottles in different heights.

I actually just posted this inspiration pic on someone elses page, lol. But, I think it could help you as well.
Here they used different shapes, sizes, and heights of wine bottles clustered together for their round tables. Hopefully, this can give you a visual idea of how your bottles would look clustered together.

Choose one bigger set of flower for the middle and two smaller on either side. That would look pretty.

I would still go with your plan. Use odd number of groupings and make sure you use different size bottles too.
I loved the idea of putting them on a placemat. You can also sprinkle some flower petals, crystals, etc. on the table and then place some votive holders with tea lights in them around the grouping.
If you want more height, put a small box in the middle to put one of the bottles on and surround it with some tulle in the green color of the runner you were going to use.
I’m sure whatever you decide on will be great. Good luck!
