    1. The blocks are very cute but they are only 1.5″ square  so they are a bit small to serve as a centerpiece. They would be cute as the base for a votive candle.

    2. I prefer the look of the lace covered cylinder vases to the lace covered mason jars,

    3. I think this combination would be really pretty. It’s also a bit different from what you commonly see with votive candles surrounding a vase of flowers. I would have 3 of the small vases with flowers surrounding the larger bowl with a candle. Odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye.

    @ErinCC:  I think your idea of using a bowl with floating candles will be terrific.

    You could use sequins or rose petals in the vase with the candles.

    If you used the same color of rose petals as the roses in the small vases, it would link the two parts of the centerpiece together.

    I think your third idea is perfect as it is Valentine’s (what could be more Valentine’s than roses?) without being overtly so.

    I love everything and if you mix them in different ways, you can come up with 3 different tablescapes and they will all flow together.  The blocks are lovely without being to “kitchy” and do add rose petals everywhere in pink, red and white if you can’t afford bouquets.  You can also do a single rose in water with the gel beads in inexpensive wine glasses (see below).  Also use scatter gems in pink.  Great ideas!

    I like those blocks alot, but as said in PP…too small for centrepeices by themselves. Why not use them for something else, like to decorate the head table, gift table, or surround the card box?
