Ok! It’s gorgeous. Except for the dried lotus. Those things give me the creeps. Try smaller dried lotus and see how that looks. That one in particular seems to overwhelm a bit. The color choices are very pleasing and well put together. Overall, except for my irrational fear of dried lotus, I really really like it.

I agree that the lotus is a little in your face. I think a smaller when would be better. Other than that I think it is beautiful!

@Cassiopeia:  I love the colors!


But the lotus pod does creep me out. I remember there was a thread not long ago saying that some people do have a phobia of lotus pods lol

I love it.  I love the milk glass vases too! …. however @Scar_cats_tic: is 100% correct. The lotus thing looks creepy.   It’s so ridiculous but yea … creepy

@Scar_cats_tic:  Omg I just learned something new about myself today…apparently I have trypophobia, as well!  I had no idea this was a real thing, and although the lotus pod in these flowers doesn’t freak me out, I Google imaged this phobia and got the heeby jeebies like WOAH!  o_O


@Cassiopeia:  I think they are very pretty and would go very well with your vintage theme, although I agree with PP’s that, at least for the BM’s bouquets, the lotus pod may want to be a bit smaller.  If you’re having a larger bouquet, it may very well work for yours, though 🙂  Nicely done!
