Best Color Centerpieces for my yellow walled venue? White/Yellow or something else?

Hi Ladies, My reception space is white columns, yellow walls, and the carpet is a medium blue ("colonial blue"). I was going to have burgundy/dark red centerpieces, but looking at the colors of the space, red doesn't go with blue and yellow, at all. Do you think I should order white and yellow flowers? White with some blue accents? Or Yellow flowers? I'm attaching two pics of my venue space, and the original color scheme, which doesn't match.

The table cloths will be white, and the decor is victorian/art nouveau, and ideas or advice are appreciated!

    Awesome space. I think you could do just about anything. Bright reds, or light blues would go great. Personally, I think white and yellow would be too uniform.

    Go bold!! I think if you were to do yellow and white, like Karen said, it will all look too matchy matchy. Getting those pops of color in there will look nice!

    I would say a bright green would look great! Definitely not red.

    Yes-- red won't go.

    Using yellow would be too much yellow.

    Blue would probably work, but the kinds of flowers that come in blues don't really go with your theme.

    So. . . I suggest, white, pink, and dark greenery! The flowers that come in these colors will go with your theme (I'm thinking roses, ranunculus, orchids, eucalyptus, etc), and they wont class with the decor, but they'll still add some color (instead of just having white tablecloths and all white centerpieces).

    The BMs are red, but im not worried about it, because the outside of the building is red, and the dinner doesnt have to matchy matchy

    Ok for all that think Red does not go with gold or yellow I ask .. how do you make orange?

    Let's look from an artistic view. Those colors are complementary colors. Red in fact would look fantastic.. Look at the roses in these arrangements

    You could use purples, blues, green, honestly think about things at xmas time. Do we not all mix these colors with gold?

    I honestly think that your color scheme would really pop in that room if you went with it.

    Red & Yellow are not complementary. Colors on opposite sides of the color wheel are complementary. The fact that they make orange means nothing.

    @J&B- the orange and blue are complementary colors my dear! I know that much .. she has blue in the background of her pics.. and red with the yellow becomes orange which is complementary.

    I think the red roses would be okay since you have white linens. Now if you used red linens that would be another story. Definitely don't go yellow- it will just blend in too much. I think white would be great. I also really like those white and green hydrangeas and I think they make beautiful simple centerpieces.
