My plans for a non-decoration, minimalistic restaurant reception were ruined by the discover of paper flowers. I just finished my first (of many) centerpieces. How does it look? This will be for a very small morning wedding.

I think the flower stems need to be a little longer, or the glass has to be shorter so there’s better balance. I think general rule, the tallest flowers in an arrangement should be twice the vase height.

Your colors are the same as mine! Can you put anything in the bottom of the jars to add a little something to them? I’d also look at adjusting the bows. The paper flowers look really good, though!

Maybe paint or line the jars?

I think you have done a great job, so far. I think the height of the flowers is fine. Normally, you want the flowers to be 1.5 to 2 times the height of the vase.
I would fill the vase with sand, pearls, vase filler- whatever you prefer the look of. I would also ditch the ribbon bow, but if you like it, keep it.

Oh my gosh–thank you for all the advice! I made second one with taller stems and I think it does look better. I will be fooling around with the rest of your suggestions–danke!
