I love the center pieces! They will go great with venue. They are county, but still elegant at the same time!

I think they’re great as is! Will you need something at the bottom of the vases to anchor the branches down, or do you think they’ll stay on their own?

I am doing similar centerpieces (but with silk flowers) and have a few suggestions that might help. I got my vases through Glass Supply Depot (online) and they were very reasonably priced, great customer service. They have an excellent selection of sizes, and the quality was way better than dollar store (which didn’t have the sizes I needed anyway). I think varying the height is key.

I used split shot sinker fishing weights to weigh down my flowers. I don’t know that they would work on branches but something worth looking at.

I think that would be great! I love how the twigs go with the wooden decor of the room.

I am doing these centerpieces. Well, I was inspired by them. Mine are a tiny bit different. They look really great in person! 

Keep in mind, the large floating candles can run anywhere up to $3 a piece, Which can get expensive! What I am doing is buying 8 hour tea lights, and if you melt wax on the bottoms and cover the metal, they will float.  The smaller floating candles dont burn very long!

You do need to attach the fake ice or stone because it keeps the twigs from floating out of the vase. I tried hot glue, and it doesnt work. So you also need to use wire, and tie the stone to the twigs.

Clean the twigs off first, because if there is any loose bark it floats to the top and looks dirty.

Ill post a photo of my mock up in a minute! For some reason the site is being stupid 🙁

I think that using coloured candles would brighten it up just the right amount, especially in the oranges or pinks! Beautiful choice, love it with your venue.
