So…i’ve stressed to the max about centerpieces…and finally made one i think i am happy with… It’s a rustic/fall theme and i think it suits it well! The picture shows the actual centerpiece then it will be placed on a chocolate satin runner with a tealight in clear glass holder on each side and fall leaves scattered around it… What do you bees think? This is what i came up with on a super tight budget!

Oh thank u so much! I have stressed out so much about the darn centerpieces…i think those have caused me more stress than my dress! And since i am making them it just adds that much more ya know… i really appreciate that! I feel like it fits our fall/rustic theme well.

I think it’s really pretty!! My only thought is to maybe get a vase that’s a little less wide and fits a little closer to the arrangement.

Very pretty. I’d also have to say a smaller-necked vase would work better, unless you plan on adding something more to fill up the space. Maybe with little river rocks or something like that??? (hehehehehe, go raid a river!!! seriously, grab some smooth rocks from a local river, wash ’em, and use ’em…)

I really like it!!
Agreed about the narrower-neck vase, but if you can’t then what you’ve got will definitely work. I love the taller and thinner centerpieces. Very classy with fall and rustic touches. 🙂

I think it looks great but would look even better if you shortened it a bit. The standard ratio for flowers to vase is that the flowers(in this case grasses) are 1.5 times the height of the vase.
This would also fill up the mouth of the vase a little more.

Personally, I like that its a taller arrangement. I love your centerpiece! I would look at other vase options, but only after I stared at it for a while and started to nitpick it. My first reaction was OMG THATS GORGEOUS

They are perfect for fall. The orange bow will look great with a chocolate runner.

Very pretty, and oh so different than the usual fall flowers (which I do love as well). The vase, as others have stated, is a bit wide for the arrangement. I would also make sure that it doesn’t block views with it being rather tall. I LOVE the color of the orange ribbon. Where did you get it at?
With rustic theme, you could use quart mason jars, or asst glass jars, for the vases. Plus, they are very inexpensive. I do like the idea of another bee of putting a few river rocks in the bottom.
The countdown is on! Enjoy!! 🙂

I agree about the vase it’s in.. just haven’t found a vase i love yet for them to go in… and by budget allow for very little wiggle room…. we just have sooo many tables to decorate it makes it difficult! I want it to be pretty without sacrificing my “vision” but i am finding that to be a challenge! Did i mention before that these centerpieces have me stressed out! haha I am going to mess around with it a little and see if i can’t try to tweek it a bit… i will repost the “re-make”.
I wanted to fill the bottom with those itsy bitsy pumpkins and fall filler…but can not find it anywhere around… may try the riverrock.. we actually have a back yard full of the little river rock b/c we landscaped with it! =)
As far as the heighth…i am on the fence of what to do… only half of the tables will have this centerpiece, the other half will me much more simplistic… and i thought if i did half tall and half short that would make for a better visual aspect… but maybe it’s still to tall??
I really appreciate the feedback! It is extremely helpful to have some non biased opinions. It helps b/c my entire bridal party is back in my hometown and they aren’t close enough for me to go over and bounce ideas off of…so it helps to have fellow bees willing to provide input! Thanks everyone!
Can you tell by my statements, that I have 0 ability in the craft department!! I am a fish out of water i feel like! Can we say “bit off more than i can chew!”

I was in A.C. Moore and The Christmas Tree Shop this weekend buying supplies for my own fall centerpieces and in one of those two stores I definitely saw mini fake pumpkins in orange or white (they were maybe 1-1.5 inches across). Good luck!
