I would suggest something with mirrors or crystals as well – so the light can bounce off of them.

Not a centerpeice idea but some strings of christmas lights can bring a lot of sparkle and light into a windowless room.  It’s off-season for acutally buying them but many folks have at least 2-3 strings of the white/clear ones that they’d likely be happy to loan.

@MyNameIsCETK:  Seriously, try asking friends for loaners first. We were trying to find lights for our venue for a Sepember wedding, looking all the way back in January/February— you’d think the after-christmas clearance sales would be in full swing then, but it was impossible to find even a box!  I sent an email to about 10 friends and had 30 strings in my hands within a week!

@MyNameIsCETK:  Tell us somenting about yor color scheme, theme etc. Hard to come up with ideas with no parameters.

What centerpieces were you going to use before, and why don’t you think they will work now? Most centerpieces can be adapted for a long table by simply adding small side pieces or more candles down the length of the table.

Are you making the centerpieces yourself? Or having them done by a florist?

It’s easy enough to add some longer pieces to the sides to make  round centerpieces more oval shaped, or change the shape of the vase.

@MyNameIsCETK:  Where in Wisconsin are you? You might talk to some farmers’ market florists if there’s one in your area – they might have great suggestions. I’m in Madison and we are working with a Dane County Farmer’s Market vendor – PM me if you’d like me to pass along her info.

Re. the circular ones – is there a way to take the basic idea for those centerpieces and just lay them out in a line rather than forming them into a circle?

you know…you might still be able to keep your centerpieces…

Dollar Tree has tons of smaller vases for 1 dollar each.  You can use the same flowers in more vases across the table.  I would also buy more candles (dollar tree has those too).

Building on @lamkky:  ‘s idea- string a few small vases lengthwise down the table with only a few flowers. You could add a runner or not.
