If you made it smoother and more round then it would look better I think and maybe chose green and blue rather than purple and blue it would seem more peacock-ish. What is the green ribbon thingy on top? I can’t tell in this picture.

i think you should stick with only two colors that blends together or make it smother as toffe said

i still don’t care for that ribbon thingie with the knots?  I love everything else about it… especially if you make the pomander a bit rounder…

I agree with crebre. Make it rounder and maybe get rid of the ribbon with the knots and it’d be much better.

with the right lighting/event place the purple/blue/peacock thing looks nice, but the dark green ribbon (sort of like an Army green) clashes with the bright colors.

 

  I don’t mind the shape, but do prefer Martha Stewart’s poms- that could just be personal opinion.

 Overall, it’s pretty.

definately make the ball tighter and i would get rid of the black thing on the top – its distracting. i can see the look you are going for – i would stick with the blue and purple though….

I actually really like it now.. I’m not sure if it needs to be tighter. Not sure how that would be accomplished.. but I like the color scheme.

However, if you’re going for a peacock theme you may consider making the ball a jade green, a darker turquoise or black and removing the purple completely. I like the purple though.

I like it now a lot as well 😀 it looks so fun and fresh (totally a color scheme I’d use :D) on the left of the picture it looks as if the puff isn’t as uniform as the rest, i think that’s what we mean by make it tighter, make it a bit more uniform, are they flowers or tissue paper?

something like this one… can you hang it on a chair? it may be the angle of the camera?

the revised pix looks much nicer! good job.

i personally like blingbling looking centerpieces so i would stick pearl pins or crytal pins sporadically around the flower ball.  it makes it fancier.
