    leave them alone! definitely not the petals, it kinda looks like you just tossed something on the table as a 2nd thought

    I would leave them alone or maybe use some of the clear beads to scatter around the vase?

    I don’t really like the ribbon or the petals but I much prefer the petals between the two. I do see what you mean about wanting something a little more though. I’m not sure if this goes with your vision but maybe black river rock or brown in the bottom of the vases might make it pop a little more since it’d contrast against the flowers. Then you could use the same stones around the outside of the vase.

    White speaks of simplicity to me. I would not use the petals, the ribbon or the napkin underneath the vase. Scattering almost anything on the table usually appears as an afterthought and rather disjointed from the centerpiece.

    I would add some sand to the votive holders so you can nestle the tealight into the sand and not see the metal holder for the candle.

    If your budget will handle it, and depending on how many centerpieces you will have, I would place the vase on a pebble tile you can get at a big box hardware store. Along with the sand in the votives,  you would have  simple, serene centerpiece.

    I’m not a fan of the ribbon or the petals…I’d just leave as is and maybe add some more votives around it instead. I also think maybe a mirrored center like the one below would look great.

    If you are set on petals maybe just a simple candle in the vase with and then add petals….like in the pic above

    @ColoradoGirl:  Ok I’d just stick with the first pic you have posted….the ribbon and petals don’t look good imo…..just simple like image 1.  1st pic I think looks best without all the extra stuff added!

    How about just scattering a few Hershey kisses around instead?


    It would just add a little bit of shine/texture to the table– but it’s simple, you can get whatever type of kisses you want depending on what color wrapper you want, can buy them in bulk for cheap from a Costco or something and you’re guests can enjoy them! 🙂
