So pretty!

I would choose EITHER the lantern OR the tall vase, though. They are kind of fighthing eachother to be the central focus.

the lanterns are really quite beautiful!

I think you should either do lanterns OR glass vases, both seems disjointed and too much.

I think I’m another vote for picking between either the lanterns or the large glass vases. Together it doesn’t seem quite right — not enough variety in height.

How about lanterns on some tables and big vases on others? As many have said, the size of the lantern and the big vase are a little off next to each other, and you said yourself together it was a bit much.. How about alternating lanters + candles and big vases + candles? I just love when centerpieces aren’t all the same! The height differences really make things look chic, you know?

I’d do the lanterns with the votives only.  The larger candle holders take away from the lantern.

These look great, but I agree with the other posters that you should omit the big hurricane.  🙂  Cute lanterns!

i think the candles and lanterns are good together, with the floating candles i would not put the same amount of water in, let them stagger and put the smaller votives scattered around, then i would say A+++!!!!! and i agree with some of the above commets in regard to getting rid of the big hurricanes! maybe add one more with water and floating candle instead. three of them would be a good number and they appear to be a good size in contrast to the other things you are using!

I agree with PP with having two versions: 1) With vases and 2) with lanterns. I LOVE candles though

I like the lantern with the votive candles.  What about having the lantern with 6 votives around it and then a candle in the lantern?

I think the floating candles and the taller candle holder are just too much and too tall.

I also like the lantern with the votive candles. I think the taller candles and the hurricane is just way too much. The lantern is awesome though!

I agree with the comments about the large vase and lantern fighting for the spotlight. I would definitely just go with the lantern and remove the large vase. Also, if you’re going to have the green bottom/floating candles, I would put something green in the bottom of the votives too (a leaf wrapped around the bottom?) and them put the floating candles on each side (to balance it out) – Overall, I think it’s going to look great!

Love those Michael’s lanterns – we have some sitting on our side table right now!  I like the lanterns with the shorter candles – with the hurricanes it takes away from the lantern.

we did candles also, because we couldn’t afford flowers for all our tables!
