I think you should find a different way to display the feathers. Maybe cluster them to one side laying flat? They look a little out of place the way they are now.

I like them! I would maybe jazz them up a bit with some flower picks. Maybe jeweled ones or peacock-blue ones?

FutureMrsW2015:  That’s okay, I was having a hard time explaining, lol. I was thinking laying flat on the left or the right over the flowers. Not sure how it would look, but I think they will look better with the feathers more integrated somehow.

I think something like this would be pretty:

 

This gives the centerpiece the unique aspect of the peacock featherswithout being over the top, in my opinion (not that yours is!!) Also for a 60″ round I would make it a little larger of a centerpeice and illuminate with candle votives.

FutureMrsW2015:  I think the pp has posted a great idea -using the feathers inside the vase.

If you don’t like that, I woud make sure the feathers are tucked into the arrangement not sticking out of it.

Simple centerpieces made from hydrangea and pit with a peacock feather accent

I don’t think peacock feathers go with all white flowers. The feathers just look out of place IMO.

msfreemis:  I agreed. The peacock feathers in the vase picture is cute. Have you already bought everything or could you change your idea around a bit still and purchase the supplies?

FutureMrsW2015:  I know! I am not crafty at all!!! I would steal ideas on Pinterest! Can you post a solo picture of the vase, and the feaThers? so we can see the size!

playdohpants:  I agree. I like them but I feel maybe a better homage to the feathers would be pulling the tones from them in something like small floral picks or gem stones or something.

I find the three feathers sticking up look slightly out of place. Love the pictures that are posted. The one with the feathers tucked in really helps with integrating them without having them as the first thing you see.
