It’s easy to get carried away with numerous ideas for reception décor. It is important to narrow your thoughts down to one theme and stick with it. Clean lines and repetition of form is the key to making a statement with your table design. This isn’t to say that you can’t have alternating heights of centerpieces. It is saying, however, to consider simplicity/consistency and ease of conversation amongst your guests when selecting your table centerpieces. There must be a focal point so elements don’t fight with each other and look cluttered. One more hint: Other than flowers, think twice before you implement any other living thing in your table centerpieces.
