@SkyChick:  I think with the votives they will look really nice. Though if you are having doubts, I think you could easily go out to the craft store and grab some moss, and put it under the votives, vase, and antler to amp it up a little bit. I think that would be a nice touch! I love your rustic feel!!!

@SkyChick:  Maybe your vase should be a little bigger? It would let the flower spread out a little more and take up more room. Also, if you don’t want a lot of added expense, a little extra greenery wound through the jars might dress it up a little more! But it looks great, it’s obvious you’ve done a lot of work on them!

I think it looks nice the way they are. The antler is awesome, and fits well with the wood.

@SkyChick:  I don’t think the antlers add much interest. They just look placed there. I would skip the antlers and try to fill out your flowers a bit more.

@LilRhodyGem:  Keep the antlers, they look great and woodsy, if that is what you are going for.

Deer antlers are the new big wedding thing.

I think there’s fine. I like simple, understated things so these would work for me. If you feel like the tables might be too empty (if they’re really big), you could always add a table runner and/or “table sprinkle” like confetti or acrylic gems. Check out any craft store.

I think the moss is a great idea. I think you have enough items, it’s just the blank canvas of the wood that makes it look sparse. Or if possible return 1 votive out of every centerpiece for a different votive holder of a differnent shape/height.

I’d lose the antlers & add more flowers & maybe some moss.

@SkyChick: 

 

The centerpiece does look a little sparse.

 

I think having two antlers on each setting would balance it out more. Just the one looks a little random. If there was another one directly across from it, I think that would add nice balance and would fill out the space more.

 

I would also add another vase of flowers, too.

 

An antler on each side; a vase of flowers on each side; the votives in the center.

 

I’m torn on the moss. I really like the way it looks in the photo the one bee posted here, but then again, I don’t know if you want to cover up that pretty wood. Not sure. Maybe you can buy enough moss for just one centerpiece, as a trial, and then decide if you’d want to do it on all of them.   Orrrr — maybe you could spread a handful of purple petals onto the wood .. scatter them randomly around and inbetween the votives??

we’re using the galvanized watering cans in our centerpieces. I love the extra they add to them. 

this is the mock-up one
