    aquasplashgirl :  I like your inspiration photo.  How about replacing the vase of roses with a potted orchid as the centerpiece and use a neutral colored table cloth?

    There is too much going on here and I really don’t like the pearl string. I think that purple/fuchsia will work out and I love it because it is unique, however you need to include a neutral color to this palette, maybe fuchsia/purple/white. I recommend that you use white tablecloths and napkins.

    it would be great if the flower ball is made of purple+fuchsia flowers. If you want more color on the table you can personalize your white napkins with a purple monogram. Somehow I like the petals underneath, but they need to go because it will make it look very busy.

    P.S. when choosing your flowers try to choose bright colors like in the picture below:

    aquasplashgirl :  What is your venue? Does it come with any linens, napkins or plates included? 

    I think if you picked one color, it would work. I would get rid of the red runner and red flowers, and change the flower ball to white. White and purple would look great together, and that would play well with the uplighting as well.

    I like the general direction you’re going in, but I just hate the color of the purple tablecloth. I think it would look a lot better as a darker purple, or a neutral color.

    aquasplashgirl :  I like the inspiration photo! I agree with PPs. I think with the flower ball and the crystals you’re trying to do too much. Less is more. With the LEDs, you’ve got plenty of visual interest to leave the flower balls behind. I would stick to the inpiration pic!

    I work in design, and one thing that’s really easy to do is adding too much. I find myself doing it sometimes, so don’t let some of these comments get you down! Sometimes you just gotta take a step back and simplify things so your focus pieces really shine. By balancing pops of colors with a neutral it really brings a nice focus to that pop of color without being overwhelming, so I think the tips about a more neutral tablecloth will really help keep the look balanced and let your centerpieces shine. It also gets tricky when you start adding more than 2 bright colors (right now I’m seeing purple, fuchsia, and red), because it’s easy for them to start competing from a visual standpoint. If it were me, I’d pick a black (or white) tablecloth, and probably nix the red flowers and red table runner (they just seem to be competing with your beautiful fuchsia details), and then scatter fuschia or white flower petals (or loose crystals to get some more bling) around if you want more visual interest. Good luck, and remember, as long as YOU like it, it’s perfect!

    I think white tablecloths would look much better and tone down all of the colour.

    No shade (“offense”,) but it gives me Dollar Tree vibes, especially that tablecloth. This would be perfect for a child’s birthday party, but I would definitely be taken aback if I walked in and saw this as someone’s wedding tables.

    White or ivory tablecloths would help increase sophisication! I am so glad that I don’t have to  do this for my tables … no telling what I would come up with!!! Good luck to you!

    Sorry, I really HATE the rose runner.  IMO it looks…cheap.

     

    eta: Ithink what bothers me about what you posted is that to my eyes, the two dark colors sort of cancel each other out and instead of seeing each color I just see…dark.  I don’t mean this in mean way, I just think a lighter color would be ..smoother? quietly elegant?…
