    I like the white candles/vases/branches (maybe try with a little less water)

    I do not like the mirror and stones on them

    I’m not crazy about the stones but everything else looks amazing …just make sure the candle doesn’t sit over the vase, good job!

    I thiink you are on the right track. The branches and the shape of the white floating candle work for me.You could definitely use pink or orange candles the same shape.

    Keep the water level lower so the candle is contained within the vase.

    I am not a fan of the glass beads. They just never seem to have any relation to the centerpiece to me.

    Ditto for the mirrors. I recognize that they are commonly used and will reflect light. I prefer a wood slab or a tray.

    If you are wanting to add something to ground the vases i would use small moss or grapevine balls at the base of the vases. They will give some weight to the bottom of the centerpiece.

    You could also use something pink or orange at the base of the vases like oranges, pomanders, beaded or seaded balls etc.

    I would keep the actual centerpiece very neutral, white candles and no stones, and bring your color in with the linens. You can do an orange overlay with pink napkins or a table runner or something. Like this.

    It looks great, but I’ve never been a fan of mirrors or beads. If its something you like, then it looks great! The rest looks wonderful!

    @hollyberry4:   You could uses styrofoam balls that you have covered with pink or orange silk flowers.

    Looking good! Although, I’d do away with the mirrors and beads.  I used charger plates and rose petals, which I think gives the centerpiece a “nicer” look.  You can buy charger plates on sale at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

    Here’s a pic for your viewing pleasure:

    I really like the vases with sticks, especially with your venue. I don’t like the colored stones though.

    I really like the vases with the sticks! Simple yet elegant. I’m not sure how it would look, but you could even try dying the water. Not sure if that would look great or terrible lol.
