Our venue has rectanglular tables, which i’m totally ok with. But I dont know what sort of look for centerpieces. I wanted to do one tall and one low, but do i need more then one per table? We’ll be sitting 8 people per table, four on each side.
Any one do rectangle tables,can i see your center pieces?

I had long rectangular tables and went all low along the centre of the table… candles, small vases with flowers (not high), and cake stands with cloches that had macarons in them. I would advise against going high… It’s so annoying for guests to have to look around a centerpiece in order to talk each other. Even if its on a thin pedestal, they tend to be very obstructive.

cirk: I don’t have rectangular tables, but I really like them. The only thing I would say is that rectangular tables can make the room feel a bit choppy and so I would use lower centerpieces to improve sightlines which will make the room feel more cohesive.

I have a mixture. I like when people use high and low or all low on rectangle tables. I also feel like each table needs more than one centerpiece unlike round tables becuase if you do one in the center the table feels empty. This is what I mean by a combo but mostly low or all low.

cirk: Here are some pictures of my tables and the decorations. Our tables also sat 8. We did one vase of flowers per table with small votive holders.
