Bouquets as Centerpieces?

One of the good things about our florist is that she provides us with bloom boxes which are these decorative cardboard boxes that the girls can place their bouquets in when not holding them. This way the flowers continue to get water and stay fresh.

However during the reception I am thinking about where the bouquets should go. I think it would be a shame to have them just laid on the table next to them during dinner. Instead I would like to stretch our money and use them as decorations around the room.

We can't put them on the cake table since it will be draped in gathers of fabric. I don't think the reception hall wants them on the bar as they might get knocked over. The only other solution I can come up with is that 2 could sit on the escort card table and one on the guest book table. I was also thinking that maybe my bouquet could sit as the centerpiece in the middle of our table. If not then I'm not sure what to do with my bouquet during the evening.

I don't know what do you guys think? Any other brilliant ideas?

This is the inspiration for my bouquet. I think it would look good sitting in the middle of the table.

I'm doing half of my tables with BM bouquets as centerpieces, and the other half with taller baby's breath arrangements. BM bouquets are tight clusters of white carnations.

I'm also neither doing a head or sweetheart table, so my girls are spread throughout the room.
