    I am in flux right now because I thought I was settled on my centerpieces but we need to trim the budget and I fell in love with these candle holders.  I am just not sure what else to add that would complement everything. 


    FYI: My colors are Aqua with lime green and cream as accents, and I have bamboo table runners with aqua trim, and we are having one long table  Here are the pics:


    BlueBeachyDecor.JPG  My original inspiration pic, but now we are trying to cut the flowers out to save money.  This is the same length table that we will be using.


    Blue Lotus small.jpgInstead of flowers, I was thinking of lining up a bunch of these on the table, but I didn't know if I should add something else that is taller to "break up" the flow.


    Green Lotus small.jpgI also considered alternating with this color, but I didn't know it would look too messy or weird.


    Blue Lotus medium.jpgOR I could alternate with these and the small green candle holders.


    Should I throw in vases or pillar candles to break up the flow?  HELP!  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

      I really like the 2nd blue candleholder, the fuller bloom of the two.  I don't think alternating the turquoise and the green would look messy as they are your two colours and quite complimentary.  


      Did you consider bringing fake flowers and just doing maybe 3 of the arrangements from your inspiration picture and then the candle holders everywhere else?  


      I think that would look nice as you would still get some height and fullness but the candles would act as nice filler and colour as well as bringing it all together!


      Hope this helps
