I think it looks great; however, I would raise the flowers up or lower the table number.

agree with the pp.

What do the vases look like?

Before I even read your description from just looking at the pic, the first thing that struck me was that the table number kind of hides the flowers. I agree with noritake about raising the flowers, or even just get a smaller frame and scale back the size of the table numbers. Other than that, it looks great!

Did you make the coffee filter flowers?

Wow! Your coffee filter flowers look so real!  Great job.  Could you make the table number landscape instead?  That would lower the height and you could increase the flowers a bit as well.

What if you just put something (in your colors of course!) under the flowers to raise them up.  Wrap a box in the Damask print and set the basket on top of that.  It would raise them up a little and give you a place to add another pop of color.   If the damask makes it so theres too much going on just do it in Black (I think that was the color of the basket). 

I got the same baskets a few months ago to use as bathroom baskets because they were so cute! 


Good luck.

Love the flowers they look very realistic!! I would make the table number smaller or put it off to the side so you can see those beautiful flowers better!!

WOW your flowers look amazing! I don’t have the budget for real ones/don’t like them that much (yes, I’m sort of strange). Is there a specific website you used with directions for making them? I agree that landscape might be a good idea.
