Time to prepare: 9 hours.
The fruit tray was lined with a rectangle paper doily, then hydranga leaves were placed on the inside of the tray. The halves of a small watermelon and canteloupe were carved into boats. The pineapple was cut in half; the leaves of one half were cut off and discarded.

I'm guessing that maybe your venue is prdvnoiig the mirrors and little votive candles ? If not, I would return the little votives and get a more substantial candle to go on either side of the vase like 4 or 6 candles and then something for them to sit on that goes with your colors like a pink to match the orchids even just a pretty paper velum from a craft store to protect the table cloths and carry the color down to the table and give an illusion of more fullness. If that's not in the budget, I really wouldn't worry too much because once the table settings and place cards and everything else gets on the table it won't even matter! Good Luck and try not to sweat the small stuff!
