My centerpieces are the ones below, only my flowers will be dark purple and each table will also have a bunch of mercury glass votives.
I need to choose some tablecloths from la tavola linens to go with this mercury glass look and I’m lost. It’s hard for me to envision what looks right with the mercury glass and what’s too busy. Does anybody have any suggestions?
Our venue is outside and has an italian villa terrace kind of feel. My colors are dark purple, silver/grey, and pale aqua and I was thinking I wanted to only have purple, silver/grey, or ivory/white on the table (no aqua so it doesn’t get too busy). I’m really lost and any ideas would be so appreciated.

I’ve narrowed it down somewhat unless ppl have other suggestions:
1. Plain gray (la tavola va va boom silver)
2. Flash silver (bit of a pattern)
3. Brilliant silver
4. Savannah silver
(but in silver)
5. Santorini silver
thanks so much for the pics- it was hard finding a full table view that I liked or that gave me ideas.

Realized that we’ll most likely be choosing between #2 (flash silver) and #3 (brilliant silver) because #1 is the same price as them but much plainer and #4 (savannah) and #5 (santorini) cost a bit more AND are translucent so we’d need to rent another tablecloth to go underneath (so they’d cost total almost double spend #2 or #3).
Now, we need to figure out if my original table number idea will still work. I love these table numbers, but if it’s really too much grey/silver with the mercury glass and #2 or #3 tablecloth or if it clashes w/the rest of the decor, then we’ll do something else. I want the look and feel of the decor overall decor to be vintage romance with a touch of luxury. (so mercury glass, rich purple drapes for ceremony, maybe a chaise lounge or two, and my dress is lace)
What do you think, should we still use these table numbers or not? Should I alter them in some way to make them work or do you have another table number suggestion that’ll look nice with our tables?

started a new thread on table numbers here – http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/which-table-numbers-3?replies=1#post-
and I’m actually still torn on which linens to go with- all are still in the running, so any votes or reasons for preferences will help. thanks
