I like it except for the stones. I’m not sure why…I just don’t like the look of them in there.

Everything else about it looks gorgeous and very romantic!

I agree, I don’t like the stones. Do you need them? Is that what’s holding down the flowers?

i like the concept–but not a huge fan of the stones or the plate the top candle is sitting on. but it is good that the centerpiece is basically covered so guests cant touch the flower and realize its a fake.

I literally said “Ooohhh” when I looked at this. Nice job. I think if the stones were all clear and there were fewer of them you’d have the look you want.

Sorry i would have to agree that the stones automatically pulled my attention from the beautiful flowers. Did you want to put something in the bottom of the vase?

I agree, use all clear stones. Then you have that clear reflective quality throughout the entire piece. The opal ones interrupt it. Overall I really love the look and feel I get from it!

I would agree its not the stones its the color that catches the eye so going clear would solve your holding the flower in place and also not distracting from the beautiful centerpiece. I love it though I was looking at centerpieces somewhat like this from a flower shop down the street from me and they wanted over 60.00 for one!! Uhhh no! lol

Can you put a dab of hot glue to the end of the flower and tack it to the bottom of the vase?

And, looking at it more – I’m not crazy about the mirror. Love the vase, the candle on top and the flowers look awesome submerged like that.

Out of curiosity – how much is the centerpieces costing you per table? My want to steal your idea!

Ok i LOVE your idea… my opinion is change your stones they take away too much from the beautiful orchids also the tealights on the glass i think should be in glass tealight holders or something… them just sitting there alone grabbed my attention…. i really love your idea though!!!! Nice Job!!

And the $25.00 price tag just made them that more beautiful. I’m loving it. Thanks for the breakdown. Guess what I’m gonna be doin’ this weekend?!

I think they look great!  I too, would suggest going with clear stones.  Or the hot glue idae sounds good as well!!!

I personally like the mirror at the bottom. What color table cloths will you be using?
