I’ve been working on my centerpieces but the one thing I haven’t decided on yet is the glass to use. My centerpieces will have 8 inch rings of crepe paper flowers, with a glass and candle in the center.
Originally, I was all set to use glass hurricane vases in the center, and had bought a vase to test out the design. But as the flowers came together I realized the flowers were poofier than expected and may overwhelm the vase I had. A Michael’s store just had its grand opening near me and I got a really good deal on a taller glass piece that would also fit in the flower rings. Which glass do you all think I should go with? Other ideas are also welcome.
(Sorry if the glass is kind of hard to see against the white background. We’re patching drywall this weekend so there are few clean surfaces in my house right now)
Option 1: My original design
Option 2: Taller glass piece

I prefer the original. I find its proportions work better with the candle & flowers.

I *much* prefer the first open – it looks nestled, whereas the second one looks like it’s balances on top of the flowers.

I also prefer the original. If I were to use the taller hurricane, I would use a taller pillar candle.

@MrsRugbee: Thanks! I agree with the proportions. Right now, I have an assortment of candles ranging from 5-8in tall (I originally bought them for Christmas decor but they’re neutral in design so I wanted to reuse them for the wedding). The candle in the pic is 5 or 6 inches tall. If I went with the taller glass, I’d likely have to get taller candles and use the shorter ones for ceremony decor instead.

I prefer number one. Very pretty 🙂
