One of the downsides to all of the time I have at home right now is that I can overthink and redesign my centerpiece ideas. Right now I'm stuck between the two drafts below. I was hoping to get some opinions/suggestions or other ideas from others who went the DIY route! (The lantern is a tea light holder - we haven't ordered the candles yet)
I like the fullness of the second one, but I think you need to raise the lantern a bit (like put a piece of foam or something underneath) so it is propped up a little higher so the candle can shine better. I think if you light a votive right now as is it might be hidden behind a lot of the greenery.
Also, have you thought about doing half tables one option and half tables the other option? I think both look great! It’s very similar to what I have with my fake ivy garlands and white ikea lanterns.
