how do you feel about these if you saw them at you table at a wedding do they look cheap or elegant?
I'm usually one who doesnt like non-floral centerpieces... but I actually like this quite a bit. Since I love flowers so much, the only thing I would do differently is put a real flower in the bottom (from Kroger or something,) but that’s because we will only have five tables so it wouldn’t be too much work if we did it. But with more tables, I say these are wonderful as is and adding a real flower would just be adding unnecessary stress... ya know?
I don't think they look cheap at all, but for me there's something missing, still. Have you tried getting something like ivy and maybe draping it around them, or something? I only suggest ivy because it's usually free... if you live in the right climate, that stuff grows everywhere!
@HisNightOwl2014: I think you're off to a good start but they do read a little dollar store tree-ish to me. But, fear not! I think you can turn it around. To me, they look like they're floating around aimlessly. I dunno, I think it needs something underneath of them to ground it as a centerpiece. I would look into mirrored tiles or some kind of placemat that could be put under it to ground it a bit more.
Our venue supplied mirrored tiles and hurricane candle holders. So, we took full advantage of that lol. I ended up using one candle holder filled with peachy pink gems and a regular pillar candle. We scattered peachy, pink, and cream colored petals at the base of the candle holder on the mirror tile and it added more dimension to the centerpiece. You got the reflectiveness from the candle light + it looked like you had double flowers cuz the mirror was doing its thing.
Good luck! Also, you can get the gem things at Michael's in decent sized bags too. Sometimes I know the dollar store bags can be kind of small. I looked there too.
thank you so much ladies your so right ; ) i plan on getting mirrors and scattering whire rose petals around them ; )
@HisNightOwl2014: I think it will look awesome! I love our how ours turned out. The petals and mirrors really help make it pop more. Here's what ours looked like:
Adding the mirror makes the centerpiece stand out more and the flowers soften the look. I loved how ours turned out. I also loved that our venue supplie the mirrors and hurricane candle holders, lol. I just had to buy petals, make our table numbers, buy candles, and buy the gems. ^_^
I think they'll look very elegant at the right venue.
@SuperDuperBrit: beautiful thats what i was thinking of rose petals and a mirror ; ) thank you
@HisNightOwl2014: I love it! And the price for them was amazing!!! Good work! :)
@sweetchiquita12: aww thank you im still tweeking them here and there but im so pleased with then dont get me wrong i think this DIY is costing me close to $200.00 but thats a far cry from the florist $400.00 to $600.00 centerpieces hoping to save money where i can.
I like them, but agree that they need a few tweaks. I would put them closer together, and use larger floating candles. Also, I wouldn't just use one of the small tealight candles - either three (or more) or none. But you have a great start, and a great price!
@nyscpa2be: I agree with the candle comments too. I think it'd look better if there were more tealights but I don't think you need them at all. Group the centerpiece closer together and pick larger floating candles. Wah-lah!
I like them! The only thing that i would change, as stated in a pp is maybe using a real flower instead of the fake ones (you can get them wholesale from sams or costco)!
