I think you have done a great job already. If you want to add colored beads, I would try a mockup. It might work, but it may also distract from the flowers. I wouldn’t add the strings of pearls.

Here is a source for the “crystal” pins to insert into the flowers.

I’m sure you can also get them at HobbyLobby and Save-on-Crafts.

I like the idea of lights for sure, maybe in the bottom of the vase to uplight the flowers?  The picture with the flowers with crystal pins would be a nice touch too.

I think I’d alternate the bead colors–like white with pink flowers, pink with purple flowes, and purple with white flowers–the contrast might help the flowers stand out a bit more. And as soon as I saw them, I thought they could use some crystals inside the flowers.

But if you got the lights/beads route, I wouldn’t add too much more to the vases, it might look a bit cluttered with both.

I think if you did all of that it would be too much. I like the floralytes but they can get expensive depneding on how many you need. I also had a florist tell me that they wouldn’t recommend putting floralytes and votives in the same centerpiece because the lights from the floralyte are very bright white and candle flames are more of a glowing orange so they could clash.

I love the idea of adding the crystals to the flowers and votives to the table.. candles always brighten things up!

Totally different feel from the original examples. I suppose it depends on what you’re going for?

The first ones were tight, sleek and blinged out: very elegant or club-like. The new ones evoke more of a country garden feel, simpler vibe, and a little less constrained.

@thirdtimebride: I agree with both coments. For the 1st design, alternating the bead colours would integrate the centerpieces with one-another. The second has a totally different (never the less beautiful) feel to it. I guess it depends what you’re going for.

Having seem your space, now I’m thinking the more deconstructed look is the way to go–the sleek vibe would have a lot to compete with all the green outside the windows.

To bring the bling into the second set of centerpieces, consider scattering clear crystals among the flowers so they look like dew drops (tiny, in the depths of the flowers or on the very edges–they’ll catch the candlelight and shimmer), maybe even some crystal stems like you sometimes see used as “cake jewelry” inside the arrangements.
