I think it’s beautiful! I was looking for something similar and was wondering if you wouldn’t mind itemizing your material list?

I am extremly critical of centerpieces but I must say I really like yours. They have this different, sorty of soho feel. Major kudos. One thing I would change is the fake petals. The dollar tree sells natural looking pebbles that I think would look a lot better with the sort of natural look. That’s just my two cents though.

I like them, except for the tealights that aren’t inside anything. I think it just takes away from the ambience created by the glass. Otherwise they are pretty and yeah for $5 you did very well!

The jars and natural leaves look really cool. You could even do some interesting zig-zag patterns with the twine and skip leaves on some of them. However, I am not a fan of the scattered petals. I don’t generally like scattered stuff regardless of the type, but I think juxtaposed so closely to natural leaves, they stand out stongly as being fake. I would probably put a table square or runner down instead. Burlap would go really nicely, and you could make squares pretty cheaply. Or buy a linen napkin even for a similar affect. I like the previous suggestion of pebbles instead if you want to keep with the scatter look. Just my suggestions, YMMV.

I agree that the external tealights detract from the overall look; however, I really, really like them. You did an awesome job!

Wow I love what you did with the leaves and candles!! I dont think you need the flower petals though it looks great by itself! Good job 🙂

They look great. I agree with the natural stone idea. I do not like the battery Tealight on the side. I think it discounts the overall look you are trying to achieve. Great job!!

I really like them but agree with the others that you can go without the extra tealights and petals!  They just don’t match with the natural look created by the leaves and jars.  Good job!
