Are you going to put anything else inside the vase? I think it looks kind of plain right now. But I do love the rose petal/candle combo.

Your flowers look pretty nice, and I think the rock idea for the bottom of the vase is a must.  I think the flower stems themselves are a little long for the vase in the picture so you may want to consider cutting the bottoms a little.  I also like all the votives/rose petals.  I think they only thing that looks a little cheap to me is the ribbon, but maybe that’s just my personal taste.  It’s tied really well, and maybe with the rocks there will be some more contrast, but it’s just a little too cutesy for me.  I think either put the ribbon higher up like this:

Or maybe put a slightly smaller ribbon to make the bow and then put a larger ribbon underneath…sort of like this:

I like where you’re going with the centerpieces but have a few suggestions

I would cut the stems of the flowers so the actual buds sit just slightly above the opening of the vase.  Also I would take off all the leaves.  If you leave them on they’ll look like grocery store flowers.

I really like the ribbon and the placement.  Just don’t forget to melt the ends so they don’t fray.

OK, well.. I hope you don’t take this the wrong way.. but .. I hate fake flowers. I think it would look much prettier if you just did only pillar candles in  different sizes and forgo the fake flowers all together.
