The colored votives look a bit rave/clubbing, which is a strange juxtaposition with the soft baby’s breath you’re using for the flowers and tha ball jars. Is there a reason you didn’t use regular battery operated votives? The colored lights might also cast weird colors on guests that might look off in pictures.

Maybe you could put some clear stones on top of the candles so the white part doesn’t show. And it might help if you put something under it all, to hold it all togehter. A square mirror, a square piece of fabric…somethign.

I definitely think it needs something more to kind of tie it all together. Depending on the feel you are going for you could put them on a mirrored plate type thing or a slice of tree. I’m not a huge fan of the colored lights, maybe it would look more streamlined if they were all white? Or even better, real candles. You are off to a good start though and have plenty of time to tweak it!

I vote for white candles as opposed to the colored ones. Also, what if you tied ribbon around the jars to bring some sort of unity to them?

I think white candles will look great. I would nestle them in some sand, stones, beads etc-something to hide the plastic base of the tealight. You haven’t told us anything about the rest of your decor, but if you are not using green anywhere else, you could use green stones or beads.

I would elevate  the whole centerpiece or at least the center jar. Again, I don’t know what “feel” you want, but you could use a wood slab, etc.

I would get real white candles and put something in or on the outside of the jars- either wrap leaves along the inside, or put ribbon or some kind of doily band on the outside

1. What about the candles with the fake flame? They look a bit more realistic. The colored ones you have are kind of out of place.

2. Add something to the vase (stones, glass gems, tie a bow around them). I think an emerald green ribbon would look really pretty!

Since you are going for a country chic look, I would suggest using burlap and maybe glitter spray.

or perhaps paint the inside of the center jar to incorporate your colors. This will help you save on buying glass filler
