I think all your items are really cute, but it looks a little odd (sparse, maybe?) spread out like that. I would try doing mini groupings of three or four items together . . . maybe two or three arrangements per table. I just think it will have a stronger impact that way.

I was just about to suggest adding your place settings when I read your last post,

You will be surprised at how much room they take up. Are you using candles anywhere? (other than your suggestion of tealights).

No, I wouldn’t use candles for a daytime reception.

If you want to use the slabs and still have room for them, you could just place them under the  some of the containers.

@SavannahL: I hope it’s not dumb because I’m using unlit candels in my candelabra for my reception and there will be plenty of light out. I like the picture you just posted.

What about stones/rocks, twigs and/or moss running down the table to sort of connect all the elements you already have?

ok, Im not sure if this helps but I have seen the wooden slabs used in lieu of charger plates. another idea for the slabs would be to carve your initials in a heart using a dark colour to make it more visible…i hope you got my vision for that one. ummm, you can also use it as a cake stand…as plates to display food, desserts etc…as risers for your drinks or plants..something! there are many ways to use the slabs so you dont feel like you need to use candles. I hope that helped 🙂

At first it did look a little odd, but only because I couldn’t really grasp it. With the ideas you have with the flowers and details for the pots I think it will be lovely. I also love the tealights idea and the candles idea is wonderful too. But like you, I would be worried about using the candles in light, but it really is lovely, so maybe you should just go for it. Will it turn dark at some point? And you know what would be cute too, to put a single stem of daisy or another flower in the bottles, but I know you have them for water. Maybe some petals or some flower confetti like buds of lavender and such could be scattered throughout to connect everything. Hope you post more pics 🙂

I think it looks fine.  I agree with julies1949 that once you add the place settings that will take care of the “empty space” look.  You don’t want your tables so full of stuff that your guests don’t have enough room to eat/drink comfortably.

I disagree w/ the comments about adding items. I think that you should unify the materials that you’re using in some way. I.e. one type of metal, one type of glass. Like, either all clear glass or all green. Hope that helps.
