I really love the charger & the blue beads on the vases. Cute!

I like the idea of attaching the two vases together, but my main concern would be balance.  The fact that the bottom vase is empty and the branches are sitting in the top vase means that the centerpiece would be easy to topple.  I would find a way to add weight to the bottom, like attaching the vase to a weighted stand.  You could also try making the centerpiece less top-heavy, maybe by shortening the branches.  The band works really well at camoflauging the center – I did not realize they were 2 vases until I went back and read your comments.  I really like the charger idea too.  Very creative!

@bleusteel:  That was my first thought, too! I keep thinking of that Four Weddings episode where a skinny centerpiece tips over and breaks on a guest!

@Rodriguezx2:  To add weight to the bottom vase, you could glue to bottom of the top vase to the top of the bottom vase instead of gluing the two bottoms together. Use E6000 glue.

Before you glue them together add something of your choice to the bottom vase- river rock, glass beads etc.

You really don’t need to worry about adding height. 99% of the time your guests will be looking straight ahead, not up.
