I think that would look cool! What is your venue like? You’d probably find some cool ones on here:

though i havent completely figured out all the logistics yet, i am going to be using paper lanterns, varying in sizes, as my centerpieces. I have started covering mine with paper flowers and i plan on putting the battery opertated tealights inside so that they give off a slight glow and surrounding them with tealights – my inspiration comes from a Martha picture i saw where she adds some butterflies to the lanterns:

 i think it makes the lanterns a little more delicate looking, which matches my venue. I’ve also thought of sitting some of the lanterns on empty vases, so they look almost like topiaries, to give a little bit of height to the cake table and bar.

good luck 🙂

I’m not sure how this would look, I"m thinking out loud here, BUT you could also get some long, thin vases, fill them with fruit or flowers or whatever you’d like, then rest the paper lantern on top of the vases, with a battery operated light sitting inside (you’d have to cover the top of the vase so the light could sit on it, I guess. But that way you still have the affect of the paper lantern hanging overhead.

I don’t think that is tacky at all, that is similar to what I was thinking of doing.
