flowers for terracotta linens?

I'm having a destination wedding.  I'm told my the wedding planner and florist that the terracotta linens look best.  However, I don't know what color centerpiece to put on them.  I can't get in touch with the florist and the wedding planner suggested peach, but I'm not sure I  like that.  Any ideas?  BTW, I'm using brown rattan chairs and chargers for the table.  Thanks!!!

    If you are aiming for bright go with gerber daisies.  If you want soft go with hydrangeas in creams & blues.

    There are white or peach roses, and white peonies. I like the arrangements on the table in your picture, but might add a peach or yellow flower to it like roses, daisies with the yellow center, white & green hydrangea.

    Good luck. It's a lovely color for the tables.

    I would stick with a contrasting color in a "cool" tone, like white, green, purple, or blue.

    If you go with other shades of the terra cotta and brown, like peach, it will give an overall "orange glow" to the look. 

    I like the look of the all white/ivory and green floral arrangements.  I think green and white, or purple would be my top picks.

    You may also want to go wander around the flowering plant section of walmart or target or home depot or lowe's or a local hardware store.  They have both terra-cotta & flowers on hand for you to get ideas.  HTH
