    I think the candelabras are gorgeous but I’m not a huge fan of the smaller vases around the base. I don’t think they are necessary. I think that if you continue to practice, they will look great! For your first try, I think it looks pretty darn good! On the flowers – I agree with you that it needs to be filled out more. Best of luck!!

    I think the candelabras are gorgeous, and the flowers are ok. I think the flowers would be perfect if they were… bigger? Rounder and more filled out. And I agree with the pp, I’m not a big fan of the smaller vases. I think the candelabras with votives scattered at the bottom is plenty.

    I like them and agree that you don’t need the smaller vases around them. Stick with the candelabras!

    I like them, but I took am not feeling the little vases as well as the sticks coming out the top, I don’t hate them I just think they look a little weird, like steam coming off the flowers or something… I dont really know how to explain it, but they just don’t look right to me.

    I love ur candelabras they are so pretty that I dnt even think u need the flowers. Just the candelabras with votives on the table would look clean and beautiful.

    I agree with no flowers needed… I don’t really get the flowers in the candelabras.  The candelabras on their own with the voitives would look striking.

    I personally like the flowers with the candelabra but less ball and more full, does that make sense? And yes I agree to ditch those whispy things.

    I think the candelabra would look great with some votives scattered around on the table. If you really want flowers but don’t want them ON the candelabra what about scattering some smaller vases of flower bunches with the votives? I don’t care for the milk glass look but with some short clear vases that might work well.

    Here is a photo of our centerpieces with the scattered voties and vases for an idea of what I am trying to convey:

    Keep working on it. The candleabra is really pretty. The sticks look awkward to me, and I think it would look a lot better if you left them out. I also don’t think you need the small vases around the bottom, they are overshadowed by the candleabra and really don’t add anything.

    I agree with PP…. take away the milk vases and the stick things…
