Too much free time = centerpiece overthinking

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 think they both look very nice. But I prefer the first one.

    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.

    I love the second one, but with the lantern a little higher. I also think the choice depends on what your theme is-are you going for more elegant or more naturalistic?

    Both are great but #1 is more unique. I would t add a thing thought because it’s perfectly balanced as is.

    I love the first one - it's perfectly asymmetrical, if you know what I mean!

    I like the asymmetry of the first one. But you could do half and half on different tables.

    You could always just alternate the centerpieces. I like both, a lot. And I was VERY much in the same boat. Both centerpieces work together and they don't have to match! Mix it up some!

    I think they both look great! Maybe the second one needs something underneath the lantern to raise it up a little.... I was wondering, where’d you get your greenery? I love it.
