I’m not much of a fan of the big flower balls. I think it would look nicer with more individual flower attached to the tree branches and no balls.

I think it looks gorgeous and congrats on finishing your first DIY project!

I love the look of the small blossoms on the branches-maybe a few more small blosssoms? Your centerpieces will look great with some votive candles underneath.

Maybe you could use the larger balls somewhere else-lining the aisle at the ceremony perhaps. I like the look of them. It’s just that the scale is wrong for the centerpieces.

I agree about the flower balls – they’d be a great fit elsewhere for decor but I think more orchids would be gorgeous!  We’re passing on the flower centerpieces as well and DIY-ing some fun stuff, too!  Are your colors black & white???

This is one of my all-time favorite photos:  I wish I had found it before I finalized my centerpieces. You could put a pomander in the middle instead of a moss ball. It’s very similar to your idea & it’s my favorite!

I think they would look more sophisticated without the balls. Even fake orchids glued to the branches would be better. THink streamlined and sophisticated.

I agree with getting rid of the pomander balls. They look a bit haphazard. More little flowers would look much softer. Is it possible to find branches that have a bit more curve and shape to them rather than just rather than fairly straight?

If you find something you love on a site that doesn’t ship to Canada(what’s up with that? it’s 2010!!!-I have the same problem), you can use a mail receiving service just across the border.

I use Hagen’s in Blaine-no brokerage fees, shipping fees are less from US companies and often they don’t wave me over to pay taxes at the border.

 I always declare everything I buy, but Canada Border services are focussing much more on immigration and drug concerns than collecting taxes.

I really like your centerpieces. How did you get the flowers to stick on the branches? Were rocks really the only thing keeping the branches up? About how much do you think it all cost you?

Basically what I’m asking is can you please give us girls who aren’t naturally inclined a little bit of a step by step break down.

thanks!
