Love the concept! I think the moss will look great on the wood base. I also think it looks a little bare…maybe add some sparkle? Possibly a small brooch or rhinestone button at the knot of the ribbon around the cylindar. You can also add rhinestone buttons to wire and have them in the bouquet to add more sparkle and to act as a filler. I would also consider some blue ostrich feathers for more texture. Just my opinion 🙂 I did run across a sale that’s running today that I posted about earlier for buttons and brooches, here’s the link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SupplyWorld?section_id=10794654

@SweetMelissa429:  You’ve done a fantastic job with them! I love the idea of some moss around the base. 🙂

They look great! Definitely need a little something on the bare spots on the wood. Maybe try the moss and post a picture. I think the votives would look nice too

If you add a couple votives, I think it will be perfect! Great job!

I’d have to see the moss on it.  I really like the wood slab and it would be a shame to cover it up.

The moss and votives will complete the look and maybe a pic of you and your hubby at different times in your engagement

Love the flowers! All the attention seems focussed on the vase on the left, though.

I would take the peacock feather out of the vase with the flowers and submerge it in the water that will have the floating candle.

Some clumps of moss on the wood slab- don’t cover it all- and mabe use a wood burning pen to carve your initials, a heart, or the wedding date on the short piece of wood under the flower vase would complete it for me.
