    I agree, I like the first picture the best. Maybe its because of the center vase. I like the tall candle holders 🙂

    I like the look of all of them (though #1 the best), but I don’t like the Ikea frame for the table numbers. It’s kind of thick/white/plasticky next to the girly daintiness of the rest of the candles/mercury glass. I would consider get a metallic frame or a cream wood frame instead. Ikea had some that were a little pricier ($2/each I think) that were cream-colored wood and I think those are nicer.

    – Love all of them, but i wouldn’t keep the plastic frame there, kind of cheapens the look.

    I like the tall ones with the tall center flower holder. I don’t like the tall ones with the short center flower holder.

    I think your centerpieces will be lovely. I would use the taller candleholders.

    On the tables where the vases are shorter, I would elevate the vase on a stack of books or a mirrored box. This will also help the Tolsby frame to look more proportionate.

    For the tealights that are in the clear glass votives, I would find some sort of silver metallic filler to nestle the tea light into so you didn’t see the whole tealight.

    You can also spray paint the Tolsby frames.

    I loveeee the mercury and the blush flowers.  It looks great. 

    I don’t think the Tolsby frame matches though.  I think that a table number that matches your mercury glass would be better – actually I think that my table numbers, or something similar, would match it perfect.

    I like the shorter candles for the shorter vase, taller candles for the taller vase.

    I really do not like the look of the frames you are using. I agree with PP’s that you should reconsider them….

    I agree, love the first picture with the tall candleholders. Agree that the tolsby frames don’t quiTe go with the look. I love your mercury glass votives I’ve been looking for some- where did you get them?

    Maybe if you paint the frames silver and distress them a bit it would fit in better. I love the mercury glass look though. I too would like to know where you got your vases and votive holders.

    Love #1!!  I like the shorter vase with everything, really ties in nicely together and looks so beautiful.  Great job, very elegant.
