Centerpiece help

I need some help with what to do for our centerpieces. We are doing silk florals, borrowed. Below is a couple of pictures of the centerpieces that I ordered. Our reception is small and not a full sit down meal. We are doing a pretty hearty grazing table type thing. The tables are the 6 foot long wood tables and will not have a table cover. I was originally planning to do a wood round with a floral centerpiece in the center of the table and then do three led votives on each end with a sprinkling of rose petals along the length of the table. But I switched the floral collection and these centerpieces are shorter than the others so I’m not sure the wood rounds will work.
I like this look with the candle holders, but I don’t like the metal mix of gold and silver. The centerpiece vase is an antique silver.
What can I do to make the tables look done since they are long without breaking the bank? I’m not sure doing additional votives on each end would look good with this new centerpiece.Thoughts? Centerpiece help 1

    My best friend actually had the exact same problem. She had just a vase for her centerpieces but her tables were 6 feet long and so what she did was buy petals and spread it across so here’s a photo if you can tell what I mean

    That’s pretty! So maybe I’m totally overthinking it? Maybe just the floral and petals will be enough? I have lots of petals ordered. LOL we are doing a petal aisle runner and petal toss so lots of petals.

    Yea i think if you spread it the way she did in that photo, it would look fuller

    I think if you spread the petals and add some votives it will be fine.

    Should I add votives around the centerpiece or along the length of the table?

    Have you thought of adding a runner?

    I haven’t. I’m not sure what kind of runner would work with the room style. It’s a pretty rustic look.
    Here is a picture of the room.

    Super cute room!! When I saw the room, I immediately thought of burlap. There are some super cute burlap runners in different colors and styles that could work. If you're not a fan of burlap, there are many other material options for table runners.

    I am not opposed to burlap. Would you think the natural color on the wooden tables with my floral centerpieces and rose petals? Our colors are steel blue, salmon pink, peach, and greenery.

    Yes, that would work . . . or if you want a little more color, there is a rose quartz color that would make your colors and the centerpiece really pop!

    I had wooden tables for my reception. I just put a table runner with a flat wooden star in the center with our jar of flowers on the wooden star. Simple and pretty!
