    It’s nice and I like it but I just keep thinking that’s something is missing. I can’t quite put my finger on it but I’m thinking that maybe it would look good with some votives around the base of the vase and on the periwinkle centerpiece fabric. I’m sure you could find some really cheap at hobby lobby with coupons or at goodwill. I think mis-matched would look great but that’s my style. You could even use baby food jars.

     

    I think the sunflowers are great but maybe add some more variety to it. Like do 2-3 sunflowers and then add in some greenery or branches to fill it out some. Or other wildflowers would look good too.

    I agree with eeh2010 in that I think your design need something else. Here’s my two cents, for what it is worth. You could use your white tablecloths and blue napkins to do a classic, casual, vintage, outdoorsy inspired theme. I would us long rectangle banquet tables and to jazz things up a bit you could add a burlap runner down the center of your tables (see pic). The fabric is super cheap. Then for your centerpieces you could use multiple mason jars (also inexpensive). In the middle one you could use the sunflowers and in the others you could use pillar candles in sand (see pic). You could also add baby’s breath (very inexpensive) in the jars sprayed yellow (see pic). It could be amazing.

    These are just my thoughts take them or leave them it’s really up to you hun. Hope I was of some help.

    I agree with the burlap runner. If you do nothing else but add a runner I think that would help significantly. I think you should stick with your vases though instead of mason jars. I LOVE mason jars (using them for my wedding) but since you already have the others I don’t see a need to change. I do like the idea of adding two vases/jars on either side with a candle in them. Or scattering a few votives around.

    Maybe you could do something like this, but with lemons and a blue ribbon to match your colors?  You could do a variation in the vases you already have.

    I think they’re pretty!

    I just wanted to say to be super careful about picking sunflowers. They’re one of my favorite flowers, and it never fails whenever I pick some there’s always ants/bugs inside of them that you don’t notice until the flowers are in the house!!

    Hi, I think that you should make the colors simpler.  I think that the white tablecloth, light blue, dark blue, and yellow flowers is too much.  I would opt for two colors, like yellow and light blue or yellow and white.  Or choose a blue flower or white flower.  My color scheme is the same and I am having the same issues.

    Honestly, I like it as-is.  I think simple is good.  I love the sunflowers and the colors, and the way that shiney material reflects light, adds a lot of interest.
