Centerpiece height..how high??

My center pieces will be a lantern and a small cube vase on either side with flowers (very small flower display, the main centerpiece is the lantern


This lantern comes in 13 inch or 8 inch http://www.pier1.com/Medium-Jeweled-Lantern---White/2755761,default,pd.html or http://www.pier1.com/WHITE-JEWELED-LANTERN-MINI/2645309,default,pd.html?cgid=lantern#start=1


Is 13 too high to see over?

    The rule of thumb that I have been told is to put your elbow on a table and hold your forearm up vertical.  That is the highest that a low centerpiece should be without causing issues with blocking your guests faces.

    I think 13 inch lanterns would be fine but 8 inches would probably be better.

  • thanks!  i'm hoping I can go with the 13 inch, because the 8 inch only fits a tea light candle.  I did the arm test and 13 inches passed.
