So about a month ago I posted some pics of my first DIY centerpiece trial. Hoping to cut some money, I’ve made a second attempt. My hope is to have half of the tables with the manzanita and half with either the sand box or, the new creation, the sand plate. It’s not in the picture but it will also have the brown fabric square underneath it and a big tiger lily type flower.
Which do you like better and should I eliminate the manzanita to cut costs?

You have done a wonderful job.
I think you should use all three

I like all three but don’t see the cohesion between the branches/flowers and either of the sand plates. To me the first one has a lot of flowers and a lot of color while the other two are very much white and brown.

I voted for the one with the sand plate but I would add some more color to it.

LOVE the first picture! I agree i dont think it flows with the sand tho. Maybe put something other than sand? Or in the 3rd picture with the plate dont use the sand at all and put more flowers to make it more colorful like the first picture.

Thanks everyone! I always love the feedback I get on here! I think I’m leaning towards making just one manzanita arrangement to place on the guest book table and play with adding more flowers to the plate to add color like some of you suggested. Yay that means I get to go back to the flower mart!

i love that sand plate! it looks amazing!
however, i am a huge fan of taller centerpieces. i think they are much more elegant. so i think you should use the manzanita AND the sand plate! good job!

I LOVE them all! I do see the continuity issue the other posters saw, maybe put sand in the vase holding up the manzanita? I don’t think the rest of the guests will notice though if you just use the moss. I agree, use all three, they are FABULOUS!
