I am struggling to settle on a centerpiece idea. I have to do DIY because of a small budget. I don't want to do flowers. We have an Irish wedding them with Green, White, and Navy color scheme. It is going to be outside, in a park, in June. The tables will be divided (6 on each side), with the dance floor in the middle, and the sweetheart table at the head of it all. I know that on a two tables on either side I want tree centerpieces, which I am super excited about, but torn between two ideas for the other tables.
My mom suggested finding tons of random glass candle holders from thrift shops and outlet centers and filling them with white candles. I have thought about painting some of them in the wedding colors. It's super romantic and whimsy, but I am worried about making a cohesive look.
My other idea is to plant a bunch of clovers in some painted terracotta pots and place them in the center of the tables. They not only bring in the Irish theme, but double as party favors.
Opinions? Any insight on how to create a cohesive look using a ton of different candles? Has anyone else done this?
