I love it. I’m not super crafty so I don’t really have any further suggestions. But really pretty!

I like it! I would just be carful of having dark branches if your room will be darker or candlelit.  People may accidently walk into the branches and scratch themselves depending on your table size.  Just make sure your branches are more “up” than “out” and you will be fine!  I like your colors.

I don’t usually like the look of petals etc scattered around a centerpiece but I do like the look of this.

It’s hard to tell the height online but it looks like the branches may be a bit tall and bare for the vase. Can you get “more branchy” branches?

It seems to need a bit more of a hit of color to give it a focal point. More of the larger, brighter leaves? or cover a styrofoam ball with silk leaves and nestle it at the top of the vase? or place a small wreath covered with autumn leaves at the top of the vase?

I’m not suggesting you do something like this pic, but see how the color of the flowers focusses your attention at the top of the vase?

I really like the plate, leaves, and marbles,  but I feel the branches need something. Maybe a flower or crystal. Something like this?

Also are you using branches from outside or manzanita branches. Manzanita Branches tend to have more shape and interest to them.

I would trim the branches a little shorter, but otherwise it looks really nice! I almost bought the same chargers for my centerpieces (we have the same colors) but I decided on something else instead.

Great start!  But the branches really need something more.  I suggest doing something to them like draping beads accross them, gluing crystals, more leaves, or flowers to them, hanging little candle lanterns from them (although you may need thicker branches for this to work safely), or stringing mini christmas lights along them. Here are some examples:

To be honest, they look kind of cheap. Are those fake leaves scattered around it or real ones? Maybe you can try with a lot more branches and attach a couple flowers like PP stated.

@jkluck24: You could also try filling the vase with nuts, might hold the branches better too! Just a thought

I really like these. Maybe put some candles around them though.
