Gorgeous! Great job with the stenciling. I can’t imagine that it was too easy doing that on the glass. What did you mean by you “stamped various white flowers?” I liket he damask fabric you’ve got going underneath the centerpiece, but the only thing I’d mention is that it makes it difficult to see the white petals – I think if you either did it just solid black fabric or maybe added some black diamond confetti to go on top of the white petals, it might bring out the petals a litttle more and tie in the dangling black gems on the candleabra. Also, I”m sure this is just the trial, but I”d make your # in the table number frame bigger to use more of the white space. Just my opinion. It’s really pretty though. Love the green that pops in it too!

Sounds like you’ve got a really great idea going – creative and different too:) I actually really like the frames idea; only cause there’s already two cylinders on the table but I bet your idea will look fab too – especially with the contrast of dark with clear numbers. Post some more pics when you try the next add-ons!

What type of venue is your reception at? I was looking for runners and tablecloths all around trying to get the best price (In my area it was at a Christmas Tree Shop that had them cheapest at about $4-$5.) but when I checked with our venue coordinator, I was shocked to find she could rent them for $1.00!!

I would do a lime green runner over a black overlay or mix and match two runners on each table interchanging the three colors throughout the reception (here’s a pic of two runners – just one idea) I’ve also seen these gorgous satiny runners with rosettes on each end at Home Goods and TJ Maxx..they seem to  be trendy right now so you could probably find them from a local rental company fairly cheap.
