I’m DIY-ing our centerpieces and nixed my original idea of doing candy jars but now need some opinions. Please let me know if you think these look better in the shorter vase or the taller one…or if you think they ust suck that’s ok too!

I like where you are going with this, but it seems like maybe the proportion are off a little bit with the taller vase. I think you could use the shorter vase and short candles or the taller vase with taller candles. Also, you might want to try five candles instead of four to make it look more circular with your rounded vases.

I think the taller one is too tall. The short one looks great!

I like where you are going with these as well. My only suggestion is to actually sit down at the table with both heights and make sure the line of sight is not obscured prohibiting table conversation. Also wondering what you colors are…and will you be incorporating them on the table with something else (napkins, favors..etc).

I like the shorter vase because its shape compliments the shape of your candleholders. I am worried that the tall one might be a bit too tall. Tilapia’s advice is great, definitely sit at a table with your arrangements and see which is the easiest to see around for your guests.

I like the taller vase– depending on the size of the tables– you don’t want the branches to be in peoples faces or for them to have to lean around the center pieces to talk to each other– Very beautiful centerpieces though!!!

Lol! I love that someone vote that I suck haha…well I asked for honesty 🙂
@rachel: I like your idea about adding a fifth candle and it does look better that way. I was thinking of doing that because 4 is an unlucky number in chinese..
@Tilapia: That was my major concern. I don’t want anything that’s going to be right smack in the way of people being able to talk. But at the same time, my kitchen table is a small one that seats 4 people so on my table it looks big…on a 10 seater table it might not be such an obstruction. Our colors are chocolate brown and red. I’m thinking of adhering a brown or red ribbon to the ‘waist’ of the vases at interchanging tables along with probably brown napkins (haven’t had that discussion with our venue manager yet)
More feedback is appreciated! Do I need to add more materials, take some out? Thanks!

I vote for the taller vase! Both look good though!

I like the taller vase. Maybe put the vase and candles on a mat of some kind to sort of visually bring them together?

i think they both work well, but i vote for the shorter.

Short. The tall one makes it look compressed or something. It just looks a little weird.

Is that eucalyptus in there? They really give off a somewhat foul odor, so its something you might consider. If they’re silk,you’re fine,but if dried…

I’m going against the majority and saying tall. To me the shorter one looks more basic & the tall one is more elegant.

@smyley: They are eucalyptus and dried. Thanks for the heads up! I’m all congested now and can’t smell anything so I’m so glad I know this now before I go buying a whole bunch of them! Advice like this is just what makes this place so awesome!
