I think that idea is cute.  Plus it won’t interfere with people trying to converse across the table with one another.  It is simple and elegant.  I think you did a good job.  🙂

I like it! I think if you added some low votives in glass holders that would add a lot too.

I agree with putting votives on the fabric as well, it just seems a bit simple.  But a little candlelight could go a long way in pulling the look together.

I think I would bolster it a little draping  a garland of some sort down the length of the fabric and nestling the flowers and votives in the curves of the garland.

The garland could be real or artificial greens, flowers, grass, moss- whatever would work with your decor.

That looks adorable. I really like it 🙂 And it won’t get in the way of talking to people on the other side of the table 🙂

I think it’s a great idea, but it would look better with the flowers done in clusters(maybe 3 of them together). It might be a little too scattered out and uniform as it is, but I love the idea of adding greens and candles…clever and unique idea!

Bolster-to support or reinforce; strengthen

I think it looks a little skimpy.There are all sorts of artificial florals out there that really aren’t that expensive.

I have also done centerpieces where I just ripped down long vines(like Ivy) and used those to fill in the centerpiece a bit.

Seeded eucalyptus is also great.

@Sady Jane: You can ebay garland for cheap.

I also think that if you cluster some of the flowers in groups and some votive candles will really add to the centerpiece.

The color of that fabric is absolutely gorgeous!!! I agree with the votives, they will make a nice touch.

I agree with adding something. I think if you added some low pillar candles rather than votives it might look nice and help add some dimension to it (rather than having everything on one level). Also maybe vary the size on the flowers more – have some large ones (like 4″) and med and small ones.
