    Here's a pic of what my centerpieces will be looking like (so far). In case you can't tell from the pic, there are candles inside (just not lit). Keep in mind, I will be adding plenty more starfish and shells around the centerpiece. I was also planning on adding tea lights and more shells along the table runner (my tables will be long and not very wide, 4 tables total). The table linens that the hotel provides are white, so I thought a brown runner would give it a nice contrast and it's one of my wedding colors.

    Any suggestions or comments? I was planning on adding a third vase, but I can't find these anymore! I'm also a little bummed that I didn't add my accent colors (mango and pink) to the centerpiece, but I couldn't really figure out how unless I added flowers. But, I wouldn't even know where to include them if I chose to buy flowers. I don't really want to spend much more on the centerpieces because they are not too much of a priority for me. But, I don't want them to look blah either, you know what I mean?!


    By the way, for those who helped me find coral- I found some at JCPenny on clearance for $4.99

    Excuse the background, my kithen counter is the only place I could find space to set my stuff up:

      How about placing everything on a round or square mirror on top of the table runner, and then adding some sand and small shells, etc dusted around.

      It will a little "pop" and the candle flicker will show on the mirror.

      Here's a pic of mine, to give a bit of an idea of what I mean about the small shells, etc sprinkled around...

        Love your centerpiece!!! They are so pretty!

        Since I'm having long, rectangular tables, I don't have enough space to add anything under (plus the bottom of the candleholders are pretty wide, so I would need big mirrors). That's the only reason I chose high candleholders. If I could find long mirrors, that may work. I have to look!

          Well, they look great the way they are. Maybe just add the shells and baby starfish sprinkled around the coral and bigger shells. I think that just helps bring it all together. Different sizes and textures. And you already have that with the big candleholders and coral. They are going to be beautiful.

            At Michaels they have different colors of rafia - might be able to incorporate some of your colors by using colored rafia instead or with the tan

                  JCPenny is having a home sale and includes all their summer decor. I found tons of coral there and they were $4.99 each.
