I love them! I love the variety 🙂 Will each table be exactly the same, or will the pieces be switched up some at each table?

I like them very much (I’m actually not a huge fan of most floral centerpieces)

I love the lanterns.  We really considered lanterns for a while because like you we can’t afford floral centerpieces (we decided on branches).

Very pretty!!!  The only thing I might try is making the lantern a little taller than the candles and holders.  if you’re wanting to go cheap -aka inexpensive- you could use cardboard boxes.  for small boxes, try stores like Family Dollar, Dollar General, Dollar Tree, etc.  any place that gets little boxes for their stock.

Other than that, they are gorgeous and work great in place of flowers!!!

I like the concept, but not the mix of both freestanding and floating candle. It feels uneven. I’d do one or the other – I think the freestanding candles with the lanterns fit the best

I love the lantern idea. But I agree with someone above who said to make the lanterns a little taller than the candles. Alternating levels add dimension. Taller lantern, shorter free standing little votives would look nice. Or some tables with floaters and some with votives.

I love the lanterns and I love the candles- but not together.

Would you consider doing lanterns on half your tables and the glass vases with the candles on the other half? You could still have the smaller candles on each table.

I think the lanterns are adorable.  However, I would not mix the large candle holders with the lanterns.  Perhaps you could have some centerpieces with the lantern and small votives, and some with the tall candleholders and small votives.  Also, I am not sure about the green stones in the floating candles.  However, I think it looks completely fine to mix regular and floating candles.  Actually, I really like that look.
