Help jazz up this centerpiece

Our theme is circles. I don't really want floral centerpieces. I don't like paying full price. So, the following fits in these categories:









Do these need anything else, like something in the center, to jazz it up a bit? I don't want to spend much more money, but I don't want the tables to look barren (although they're definitely not a priority). Also, I'm not a huge fan of the mirrors underneath and I'm thinking of spray painting them silver because that would go better.




Thanks!

I think the candlelight will be very pretty - I don't think you need anything else! If you're not into florals what about rose petals underfoot?

What's the feel of your wedding? I agree with AC, petals would be lovely and classic. If you're going more rustic you could use moss and river stones. If you're going more glam you could get some of those little diamonds, the light would bounce nicely off of those. You couls also use coordinating napkins and bunch them up under or around it.

Depending on the style of your wedding, you could buy some crystal beaded fringe from JoAnne's and glue it around the base or top of each of the candle holders. It can add some sparkle and/or color if you got colored fringe.

Another option would be to get some pretty fabric and kind of have a loose pile on the table with the candle holder sitting on top of it. The fabric could be shiny satin, sparkly or even a nice pattern that goes with the style of your wedding.

Good luck!

I actually love the clean lines as they are....and in silver I think it would be gorgeous. How about just doing COLORED tablelinens. And have these in the center (I am assuming you're doing rounds) and perhaps, to finish off the circle-idea, rounds glass plates with round menus beneath that show through? I think you can even get the paper perforated for such an application via Paper Source. Linens and Paper are a great way to pull in TONS of color inexpensively. Then, what color candles are you using? That would be another area to pull in some color.

Another idea is to alternate what is in the glass....candles with some and maybe others filled with glass pebbles in aqua? No water, of course, but you could just pile them in there and maybe even nestle the candle at the top...similar to this, but without the water:




P.S. Does you venue allow candles? Some do not.

Also, I bought some square tall vases, and FI thinks the square ones would work in the circle. I'm not so sure. So what do you gals think?

I'm liking the second diagram. You will have to put the table number somewhere. In instead of have it getting in the way, why not put it in the center. Finish it off with some jeweled garland.

I personally like the last diagram, if you are doing just circles. Great photoshop skills!

Lots of great ideas girls! I like:

- The table number in the middle or
- Just one large hurricane glass

- I like the fabric 'clouding' technique
- definitely rose petals are always nice!

-HMM :)
