Hrm I think its pretty, and with the right setting could be quite elegant. Have you considered using preserved flowers from They might be a little more expensive than your flower ones, but could ‘up’ the elegance factor.

I made this centerpiece with perseved orchids, sticks, hot glue, and fake onion grass. Each center piece cost me like $1.50-$2 I think. I also borrowed the vases like you would as well.

I love your flowers!!! Seriously, I think they look great. I’ve never been a big fan of centerpieces in flat bowls like that, but that’s a personal preference. I’d stick some on a stem and see how they look in talled vases. Those also take up less room on the table, which is nice. And what else will be in the centerpiece? Any candles or table numbers or things like that? I did paper flowers, but very different than yours, and they worked out great!

@ApocalypseCow:  These will look FINE.  They are similar to my centerpieces as I saw no reason to spend money on real flowers except on my bouquet!

@ApocalypseCow:  Ok I will be completely honest because I am thinking of going the paper flower route as well.

I think the one thing that is bugging me about it is you have super traditional vases and candles, but then with whimsical paper flowers. If the flowers were in painted vases or something more fun I think it might work better. Have you thought of doing just one or two big ones per table?

The other thing I think is maybe simplifying the colors could help with the elegance, or choosing colors that are a bit more muted.

I am thinking of buying this book:

I think it also depends on the venue – if you are doing a summery garden wedding you can get away with it, if you are having it in a super fancy hotel it might be a little odd.

These are just my opinions so feel free to disregard!

@ApocalypseCow:  Oh paper flowers will be really cool for an art gallery! I think you could definitely get away with the bright colors – but if you want more muted colors I think hobby lobby has a lot of colors
