Centerpiece Opinions?

Hi there! We're doing a September wedding with a rustic Scottish vibe. Our venue is a wood lodge with unique black lanterns hanging from the ceiling. Our tables are 8ft long and I'm starting with these plaid table runners and lanterns (the numbers TBD). We're also using florals similar to the below. What else should I do to spruce this up? Open to all input!


Things I've considered so far:

Greenery down the sides?

Several bud vases down the sides (Green glass? Clear?)?

A small arrangement on each side?

Gold charger plates?

The wood slabs underneath the lantern?

Gold votives?

Ribbon on the lanterns?

Fall fruit spread on the tables?


*We can't use real candles so unfortunately that's out.

    I love the look of lush greenery down the middle with floating candles! It’s so romantic looking

    Are You Only Having One Lantern Per Table or more? If More I Would Put Flowers Around The Bottom Of Each Lantern And Then Have Greenery Down The Middle As Well To Sort Or "Connect" Them, If That Makes Since.

    Yes, just the one lantern per table, but I was leaning towards the greenery coming off both sides .

    Because your runners are fairly thin, I think greenery would hide them. I think bud vases with a couple flowers in each vase or votive candles would look cute on either side of the lantern!

    We're doing wooden rounds in the center of our rectangular tables with a small vase and table number on top. Then on either side we're doing a large taper candle with votives in glasses on either side.

    I like the idea of wooden slabs and greenery

    That sounds pretty! Yeah, I was worried about the greenery covering up the runner too much.

    Definitely greenery! Maybe the lantern sitting in a wreath made of greenery —with a few flowers matching your bouquet?
