tables, candles, and flowers, oh my!

I love me some long tables. Love, love, love them! But my florist just told me that I would actually need more "stuff" (not less) to fill up a long, banquet tables than I would with a standard, round table. Yes, yes, I know, there are fewer inches of space to fill width-wise, but there are far more feet to fill length-wise. When my florist explained this to me, my heart got so heavy! Why, oh why, is everything going wrong? Apparently this happens to everyone, not just me...

So, last Saturday, I went to my father's house and unpacked all of the candles I've purchased over the last 6 months... I took one look at the pile and thought to myself, wow, I went overboard... But...then I realized that our mint julep cups filled with small bunches of flowers, and my insane amount of candles would be just enough to fill up long tables (with a few left over for the buffet, bar, etc)!!!! Yay for long tables!
