i think it looks great as is. i would just have some sort of fabric square underneath it all that you set on top of the table cloth (you could also do a mirror or a tray, anything to set the vase and candles on). it will give more dimension.

i wouldn’t add more flowers or do more crystals. it’s pretty!

i bought some silk dupioni fabric and sewed 14 x14 squares to put on top of our tablecloths… it made the centerpieces stand out more!

i personally think it’s missing something…. maybe the blue stones are throwing me off.

I would recommend putting it all on a mirror. It will add more light and depth from the reflection and tie it together as one single unit.

@misskittykakes:  I was just going to suggest going with clear stones! 🙂 I think it looks really pretty as is.

What about adding some flowers (silk or real) in the top portion of the vase – on top of the blue stones? I’m not suggesting something that goes up high – you have the vertical covered with the branches, but just something to kind of cushion between the stones and where branches really come out.

I think it is pretty. Maybe put some white flowers draped around base of branches at the top of the vase. You could possibly scatter some of the glass marbles around the votives. On a contrasting tablecloth.

I saw this in the gallery the other day and LOVED it!!  How about some tissue flowers?

I like the mirror idea but I think it looks great the way it is.

I think it depends on the angle at which you view the centerpiece. The top pic has an obvious gap bewteen the two branches so it looks a little sparse, but the second pic looks great!

I would try adding some silk flowers or even feather at the top of the vase.


Try some different ideas for a base. Those little round mirrors can appear a bit dated.

square mirror

or a large square or round mirror that is lareg enough for the candles to also sit on it

 you can also get thin sheets of easy to cut copper or aluminum at craft stores

pebble tiles would also work- a nice contrast bewtween the stones and crystals

I think it’s got enough crystals, but I think it need something underneath. If you’re having table runners that’d work, or maybe a square of fabric or some scattered petals or stones.

How about some fake rose petals to “soften” the look up a bit? Looks great though!
