Rectangular Dining Tables

Instead of one large centerpiece that might look a little lonely, display smaller clusters of varied arrangements evenly spaced at every other place setting. Limit the centerpiece height to below eye level—it's likely that platters of food and bottles of wine will be passed back and forth in this family-style setup, so you don't want the flowers to get in the way. Also make sure that arrangements are on the narrow side (10 inches wide or less) to leave plenty of room for place settings.
