I would fill the vases with black smooth river rocks and check out how that looks. I like’em.

I think the centerpieces are gorgeous, and the roses look so real!  You did a great job.  I’m not sure what else you can add to it, but maybe you could find something white since that color is not represented yet?

No, they don’t look "lame" at all. Kudos to you, you did a very nice job to be honest. Like someone else mentioned, fill them with river rocks.

It’s not lame!  I would maybe suggest using the branches that curl a little.  And, I also what the other bees suggested about using River rocks!

They look great! I like the idea of putting something black in the vases like stones or marbles.

I agree, can you find longer branches that curl up or down to make it look more graceful; great concept; maybe you can add hanging strands of crystals on the branches to give it an extra wow factor

 

think it needs more oomph, but its the beginnings of a great centerpiece; add the crystals like youre thinking

They look good. I agree that you should put something in the vase.

I think they look great. You def need to do something about the clear vase though. Instead of filling the vases, you could wrap them in a black & white patterned paper. I think that would help tie in the B&W better. Some other ideas would be to fill the vases with whole coffee beans (which would smell amazing), dried split peas, rocks, or even colored sand.

How about filling with cranberries?  I love the roses!  I really want to try making them now!

I think they’ll be beautiful when you find something to fill the vase!!  Very impressive!
