Though it might not seem as important the lantern centerpieces which you use at an event can sure make a huge difference. Using the right one can help in setting the tone for the event while also making the event more magical. When you are choosing the centerpiece, there are a lot of things that need to be considered. Listed below are a few of them.    

Consider the Ornamentation of the Room
If you are planning to host your party in a castle which has a lot of ornamentation and moldings, the room is already making a statement. This means that you wouldn’t need to do much. In such rooms, it is minimalist elegance which works best. On the other hand, if your party is going to be organized in a tent, there are various things you require to dress it up and make it look all pretty. This is when using lantern centerpieces can spice up the entire look and feel of the room. You could also look at the colors of the walls and mix and match with it. This would ensure that you never go wrong with your decor.
Mix Low and Tall centerpieces
Important events like weddings are where you just cannot go wrong. You need to ensure that the location doesn’t feel empty or under-decorated. Mixing and matching low and tall lantern centerpieces is the correct way to fill up a room. Just make sure that you are using them appropriately or else you would end up blocking the line of sight of the guests. The short centerpieces are great as they allow conversation among the guests. The general guideline is to keep the tall as high as 24’ or more than that and the shorts as low as 12” or under.
Make sure that the Guests can see Each Other
The height of the centerpieces often tends to confuse people. When getting these for events, ask your planner to show you some samples. Get a few close friends or family members and let them sit at the table. Generally, small centerpieces work best, be it lanterns or flowers. With flowers, you can opt for the high ones if you get clear bases. Just make sure that the centerpieces are serving their purpose as an item of decor and not being an obstruction.
Considering your Budget
If you are on a budget, don’t worry, you would still be able to purchase stunning centerpieces. All you need to do is engage in some smart shopping and think creatively. This way you would be able to get your hands on elegant and inexpensive pieces. If you are getting it for an event, buy inexpensive ones in bulk. It is not just the expensive ones which create an impression on people. It is how smartly you can present things to your guests. Think smartly and you would surely be able to make good purchases on a budget.
Other than all of the above consider the preferences and comfort of your guests other than the beauty of the centerpieces. Choosing the right one would help in making the experience more enjoyable.
