I put these tables together and feel like I need something more. The tables will be round and will have a couple more votives on each. Also, we will have our favors (which is a leaf cook with our C on it in a little cute bag) next to each place setting.
Oh and of course everything will be ironed….
Please share your honest opinions!

visualizing it as a round table makes me think it’s very nice! it’s not too busy and I think that your guests would be able to see each other and interact!

that looks great and I think it is enough for a round table!

I like the simple setup, but maybe you’re forgetting the drink glasses, secondary plates (for rolls), and the salad forks & dessert spoons? Once that stuff is on the table, I don’t think it will look so empty.
Also, perhaps something added to the napkin rings? It’s hard to see in the picture, but making those stand out a little more might add depth to the table.
The way you have it set up (rectangular table) reminds me of how many people decorate for Thanksgiving — in a good way!! Pretty, simple, and with recognizable autumn colors.

I think if you add your glasses the table will be adequately full. Remember to have the knives and forks on the correct side if you are doing your own setup (opposite to pic).
I would consider folding the napkin and placing it on the plate rather than rolling it. It has a more substantial look.
You could add some embellishment to the napkin, or not, as you choose

Thanks for the advice ladies! lol, I spent about 5 hours rolling and tying the little burlap bows on the napkins, I couldn’t bring myself to unroll them. I did realize I had the silverware backwards after I took the pics and have made a note in my setup diagram to switch that around. There wont be glasses at the tables, we are going to have an area with the drinks where people will get there glasses and bring them back to the tables.
