I just got back from the florist who made a mock up of our tall centerpieces. I really like them. We (I) were going for something autumn-ish, but not screaming autumn. I wanted something tall with branches, but some florals on the bottom. If I am going to nit-pick, though, we are going for more of an eggplant and less of a purple. And, I don’t know how I feel about the leaves on the bottom sort of crawling out. What do you ladies think?? I’d love some feedback! All I got from FH was “its really tall.” Thanks, lol.

I think it depends on your table shape with the leaves on the bottom. If your tables are round, I’d probably nix them so they don’t interfere with anyone’s place setting.
It’s hard to tell the depth on them, but I think there might be too much going on on the top. I think I just like the branches to show themselves off with a little accent of flowers or leaves, but maybe not both. Just my thoughts.

I think it is a little tall. If you have tables where you want people to be able to talk across then it will be hard. But if your tables are larger and they wont be conversing across then it’s fine. I really like the colors

I love how organic they look. Beautiful! I honestly like the greenery hanging it gives it a fresh from the garden look.

They’re beautiful, I love all the colors! I like the greenery sticking out, but I’d worry about them getting in the way.

Interesting centerpiece. I think as a guest I’d think they are a bit much on the top, they kinda go in all sorts of direction on top. And the bottom leaves would def. bother me while I’m eating. Gets in the way of my plate. Best of luck!!

I am with pretty much everyone else on the stems at the bottom of your centerpieces. They look errant, or unkept.. which actually does fit a garden type theme in my opinion but in this case it might be a bit too much =) However, it would be comical to watch someone’s plate be invaded with leaves that decided to take gravy baths lol.. or maybe it’s because I keep picturing the stems having minds of their own and growing little legs and sneaking towards dinner.
… I think I have officially been awake too long. Good night and good luck! (flowers chosen are beautiful)

I like all the different colors. But i would get rid of the “crawling” branches lol. Its a little too branchy for my taste. But still beautiful & very autumn

I think they are beautiful and I think the crawly brances at the bottom depend on the size and shape of you tables they will be on. Good luck with your decision.
