I would nix the ribbon and place 3 purple silk hydrangeas at the top of the vase-like a collar at the base of the grass.

What about putting them in a wider vase and adding something into the vases like this- 

or are the vases already bought?  Even if they are you could still put something maybe purple in the vases themselves… that might jazz it up

You could always fill the vases with water, colored purple, since the vases are pretty narrow and filler won’t help. I don’t think petals would work (do you mean glued on the ting or scattered on the table?)

Maybe you could do something like this but with branches. Right now with the branches being slim and the vase being so small it looks sort of spare.

This is something else you could do for color….tuck carnations/roses/any flower in your color around the tops like these, or use hydrangeas as was suggested above. I love the branch centerpieces too, but I think you can make the ones you have work with some tweaking.

Here’s another with fresh flowers on the branches up higher. I’m not sure your ting is srong enough to support anything on the stems and may make them top heavy and easy to fall over. All you can do is experiment to get the look you want.

I would put purple and gold pearls or marbles or something in the bottom of the vase

I think the more simple centerpieces are pretty! I like the idea that julies1949 said…add flowers to make it like a collar around the top of the vase. You could also just sprinkle some flower petals on the table around the vase. I think that would be pretty!

@Tina.Baker:  try tucking in a few purple flowers and see if you like the look with the ribbon. If you don’t like the ribbon, you can always tear it off. The flowers should cover the glue marks.
