These are just mock ups. We have the standard size round guest tables. When I went to go check it out I feel like they are huge tables and I don’t want the centerpieces to be dwarfed. There will be 4 small votives surrounding the centerpiece that you don’t see in the pics below. The venue is providing those votives. The vases I plan on using for the flowers will be DIY mercury glass so please picture them as so. You won’t see the stems once I DIY the mercury glass vases.
Option 1 with one mercury glass vase and 3-4 hydrangeas in the vase then the candle holders surrounding the one vase
Option 2 with three smaller mercury glass vases (closer to a bud vase) one stem of hydrangeas. The three vases would surround the 3 candle holders that you see below.

Most definitely 1! The second one is too much in my opinion.

@Mars62312: Thank you. Do you think the vase size is ok for pic 1?

@jessyrez: i think it looks busy. i think maybe lower vases might help. The candles could stand without the flowers, too. I like where your going, keep playing around 🙂

The second has too much going on (especially after you add the votives) and would take up a lot of table space. I understand not wanting the centerpieces to go unnoticed, but they’re not actually meant to dominate the table. They’re just decoration on a table where people will be trying to eat, and I bet the tables fill up quickly once the guests are seated and their food and drinks are in place.
The first one is nice, though for some reason I’m not crazy aboutt the flowers sitting lower than the candle holders. I would probably choose a slightly taller vase.

I prefer number 1, but I would place something under the vase with the flowers to raise it up.
I suggest you do a mockup of the table to help you get the space in perspective. Lay newspapers or a white sheet on the floor and draw a circle the size of the table with chalk. It will wash off the sheet.
Set out your place settings with cutlery and stemware.
There will not be as much room left in the center as you imagine.

@jessyrez: I would do #1, but with only 1 candle.
