Hi bees! I need help figuring out which of these looks better. We’re going for a nature theme. Our colors are brown, green, and champagne/gold. Here’s my reception venue to give a visual of the space:
So I came up with two different centerpiece ideas, but I can’t figure out which one I want to use. Here’s concept 1. The foam balls will be covered with fabric flowers and the bottles will be stuffed with shimmer tulle/organza. The tallest bottle will have a lace band with the table number on it.
Here’s concept 2. Will also have flowers on the foam ball on top, will have tulle/organza filler, and the lace band with the table number.
The foam balls on the plate will be replaced with these twig and moss balls:
And regardless of which setup I go with, the plate on the bottom will be this gold charger:
Fiance and I think that setup #1 is more elegant, but setup #2 is more in line with our nature theme and also cheaper to do. So what do you guys think? #1 or #2? Or any other suggestions?

I think either way you might want to reconsider the shimmer tulle. The glass, fabric flowers, moss balls, etc. give a very natural and organic look. Clear bottles may sound too plain but I think they would fit better with your theme.

@HeyKaraoke: I’m in the minority here it seems, but I actually like the look of one bottle more. I think it might have to do with the fact that you’re incorporating twig and moss balls with that concept … I love those!
You could always change it up a little by using different sizes/styles of bottles on different tables if you did decide to go with the single bottle look.

I think you could do a mixture, like more of the second but a few of the first. I think they would look great together. OR, do the second one for all the tables but on the head table you have the first one
