    I think all it needs is to get into a wedding setting, and out of the corner of your home 🙂  I think it’ll look perfect on a properly set table.

    ETA: On a second glance, i’m not sure I’m a fan of the black eyed susans/anemonies.  The peony/garden roses look fantastic, but those look just a little off in pictures.  Way more obviously fabric flowers.

    I think some greenery would look really nice – but they’re super pretty!

    Are you going to have some kind of sign for table numbers or names?

    I think you just have too many vases and too many flowers.

    If you number the vases from left to right in the second pic, I would keep #2 and #3 , delete #1 and replace #4 with your table sign.

    You could mix up the flowers in the remaining  or keep them all the same whichever you prefer.

    Dusty Miller would look great as a base for the flowers.

    @yram19:  those vases are too basic. maybe something that looks like blown glass instead. and a more angular shap (like square or rectangle)

    I would add some votives in little votive holders. I love it! The colors are so romantic and pretty.

    I like it. . . but I think there’s too many vases. . . and that the vases need something. Either a different vase. . . something not so plain, maybe even mismatched? And perhaps mix the flowers together.

    I love it!!! How were you able to find those flowers to DIY it? Is it just like a store you go to… or did you have to order them? And how much did you pay? It looks wonderful and I’m hoping to do something similar but without the books. Just need to find the flowers though and I dont want to order them online…..

    @yram19:  You could also paint the vases to give them more impact.
