Can you add more of the blue things to make it a little fuller? And I would do a couple candles around the wine bottle. 3-4ish.

I apologize for this, but I have to admit that I think this is a big mistake.  If you love it, then GREAT, but I just don’t care for this idea at all.  I’m not a fan of throwing the T word around but I do think you can do much better.

That being said, if you’re into it, instead of putting the plume in the bottle, what if you cut the stem off and laid them flat on the table with the candle on top?

I think if those aren’t calling out to you as the be all end all dream centrepiece you should move on.

I would cut down the blue thing a bit. I think if it was full right where it came out of the bottle, it would look fuller overall.

I have to agree… I’m not loving it… maybe if it was fuller (with other flowers, etc) it would help… but I’m still not sure… I like the idea of laying it flat on the table – that seems more classy

@millielue:   I think a simple vase would work better.  I’m thinking of one I’ve seen at DollarTree, it’s the etched tapered glass stem vase.

I don’t like it either. I can see why the feathery thing caught your eye, but they just don’t work together.

What is your color scheme? Purple, that turquose blue… what else?

Cut the blue thing down so that the plumes start right at the mouth of the bottle. Since you only have one, can you try to fan it out so it looks fluffier?

Also, I don’t think you need ribbon around the sparkly votives. That might be “too much.” I was taught that simple = more elegant 🙂

And I agree on more candles. My venue doesn’t allow open flame either, but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t do candles in votive holders, right?

Honestly, no – I don’t think it looks very good. If you had say more of the feather things then maybe three bottles per table but just one will look sad. And one bottle and one candle will look equally sad. You don’t have to go over the top but with these items, I just don’t think it works.
