Those look great!  It’s hard to say what you’re missing without seeing a mock up.  Maybe some fall like garland around the base of the big pumpkins (the kind you can get a Michaels with the little beads on them) or maybe some fall leaves?  Either way they look great!

They seem reallY big. I think with some fall colored flowers underneath and around them it wold look nice.

I think it looks good!  I’m worried about the pumpkins, though, with the wedding still being over a month away.  Are they going to rot?

OMG I love these!!! This is what we’re doing too but with real pumkpins and a bit smaller size, ya I know we’re crazy lol. Yours turned out great. We are putting a wreath of leaves underneath to hide the actual centerpiece price underneath the pumkpin. 🙂

I think they are mising glitter. Th small one look awesome and the big ones would be way more interesting and look finished with glitter.

You should paint the pumpkins! White or black or mirror paint!

@Narwhal:  Oh ok!  I missed the part about them being fake pumpkins 🙂

You could paint glitter on the inside of the numbers – that way they sparkle when the light shines through!  Make sense?

I like the white paint on them, especially if you’re having more rustic type decor.

I think the white paint as well. It adds another much needed dimension to the centerpiece.

@Narwhal:  I loooove the antiqued white look. I think you’ll probably be fine painting them, but maybe test it out first on the pieces you’ve cut out already?
