Opinions on my Center piece?

Well, I finally gathered enough of my 'stuff' to do a test run of my center pieces. I'm hoping you amazing ladies and gents can give me opinions. Our theme is tropical/beach-y, and the tables will be 5' circles with 8 people. There will also be white orchid flowers (fake) in with the shells on the table itself. Also, the candle will be white (I couldn't find my white ones though so used the blue one I had).

Some things I am thinking of changing -

1) I am not sure I like the silver table runners. I am thinking of changing to mirrors instead? There are silver chargers that will break up the blue.

2) I am considering doing one vase (the middle height one) with no sand; instead doing about an inch of sea shells and water.

    Looks really good, I would perhaps add something like another leaf or shell on the side where the two taller cases are for whoever is sitting on that side of the table

    I really like it the way it is. I would suggest maybe seeing how those couple of changes look next to this one.

    Not all centre pieces have to be identical and it can help give some flow to the room when they are slightly different table looks (same design but slightly different height or light source).

    I really like it! The only thing that I would worry about with this arrangement is how it looks all the way around. Someone has to look at the back of this all night. The trick will to have this look just as nice at all angles.

    Glass under the vase is a better thought and medium vase with seashells and water with 3 leaves around will look simple and elegant.

    Your beach theme will look perfect with the silver chargers.

    I like the mirror in place of a silver table runner.

    I like the one with sand in all three with the mirror. I agree with you that the silver runner is a bit much. I think the silver chargers will take care of breaking up the blue. Smiley smile

    Oh perfect! 😆 I am a weirdo when it comes to symmetry. Have you considered all clear water in the vases with floating candles and shells in the bottom? Just an idea. I think it gives that airy beach vibe as well. We did something similar, 3 vases, floating candles, and a large floral ring around everything and with fairy lights wrapped in. I don't have pictures back yet but this one was extra so I put it under the cake.

    There actually is a third palm leaf, along with shells and flowers, on the other side. They just can't be seen in the picture!

    Looks great! May I suggest a 3rd palm leaf on the other side? It think it balances out the 3 vases nicely.

    Thanks everyone! My fiancé agrees that the three containers with sand, with a smaller pillar candle in white, on the mirror is the best, too, so that's what we're going with!

    I like the idea of having them on mirrors! The lit candle will reflect nicely off the mirrors.

    Great looking centerpieces Smiley smile

    This is my favourite of your center piece Smiley smile

    im also doing a beach theme Smiley smile
    Our wedding is small and This is my center piece but regular color sand and yellow flowers.
    Since we have rectangle tables I’ll be adding the floating candles in between the center piece.

    These are beautiful! Love the idea of the mirrors underneath the vases.
    I like the look of having one vase different than the rest. You could always do different styles on each table

    Ok. 3 other options. I couldn't find my mirror so the cardboard is acting as a stand in, as is the twilight for a votive.


    3 sand on mirror with orchids
    2 sand, 1 water on mirror
    2 sand, 1 blue coloured water on mirror

    Very pretty!!! I was going to suggest having something more soft and white on it but since you'll have the orchids I think that will be perfect!!! I like the runner! However I'm personally not a fancy of the shiny fabric... have you considered doing a white lace maybe? Might help not be such an aggressive contrast against the blue!
    Also re: large vase, I think what you have already is wonderful! Maybe just do the large vase with shells and water at the head table? I think it might be TOO much on all tables!

    Ooohhhh! so pretty! Smiley smile I personally would do a silver charger or the glass vs the table runner.

    for a break up, the water with shells would look fantastic too. could do 1/2 the tables that way. 1/2 with sand.

    I think it looks great! Personally, I love the mirror look, it's a little crisper/cleaner... also having one without sand could look really nice! I think you'd need to try it both ways to be sure!

    I agree that a mirror will be better...Is it possible to use a blue food colouring in the water? I think it will look more vibrant with a little more colour!

    These look awesome Peggy, I love the tropical theme! I like the look of all 3 vases having sand and the silver table runners, I would do a mock up of the other ideas so you (and us!) can compare!

    Looks good! I'd be interested in seeing it with the mirror or something simple. I feel like the shine of the table runner distracts from the rest of the pieces.
