PinkPeaches:  Cute! Do you plan to put something under the glass like a battery votive? Or some flowers?

PinkPeaches:  Yeah, painting the glass another color you are using in the wedding too.

I’m just not a fan of those upside down wine glass centerpieces. I would use a cylinder vase.

How creative! I didn’t even realise it was a wine glass until the pp said something. I do think it needs a bit more added to it, but the boa ball looks great. I was going to suggest filling the bottom of the vase with coloured sand, but you can’t really do that with a wine glass, lol.

Were you just going to have a single one per centerpiece?

I really like the second centerpiece much better, not a fan of the upside down wine glass or the boa ball. I don’t think you need to do anythng to the second centerpiece, but for fun maybe add a single white or black ostrich feather into the roses.

Ill be honest, I don’t like the boa balls and if you put them on the food tables little bits if the feathers will be coming off in their food. Your second one has too much going on, stripes, rhinestones and damask? None of those complement each other. Nor does that complement the boa balls. Pick one ribbon and a solid placemat or a single black, white or rhinestone ribbon with the damask.

I do like the concept of both but I think you need to complete the thought process first and then pick ones that complement each other.

I am super, I mean SUPER allergic to feathers- like will have respiratory difficulties. I didnt even know I had the allergy, until I went for an allergy screening for other reasons.

Feather allergies are fairly common and most people don’t know they have them. Be very very very careful with feathers and guests with allergies…especially boa- feathers which are much more likely to separate, float around.

PinkPeaches:  Oh, the second are great and I am with the PP that if you pu the feathers near the food then you will have little feathers in the food. If you are set on doing them I would place them on like the card and gift tables. Otherwise I would just stick with the rose centerpieces.
