    @MzSoon2b:

    Both are soo pretty but I am partial to the first one because it looks more regal and formal…..But then again I do’nt know if that’s what you’re going for..

    @MzSoon2b: I like the ones with the purple flowers the best the white is very eleagant but the purple just pops more for me and like you said it matches the other centerpieces.

    I think the purple is a bit softer.

    I agree that the roses are my fav, but I def think the purple orchids match the other centerpeices you will have much better – so they get my vote.

    I’m going to vote for the bottom option without the candle and crystals. (I don’t think that combination got photographed.)

    Purple flowers! I loooove that look! Since you are DIY-ing these (as I plan to do something similar), can I ask where you bought the branches and the preserved flowers? I’m looking for a good deal 🙂

    I like the last option because it actually looks like those flowers could possibly come from branches like that, if you know what I mean. They kind of remind me of purple cherry blossoms. The white roses on the branches don’t look very natural to me. One negative of the all purple is that the butterflies won’t stand out as much. Like I said, though, overall, I like that version better.

    hi there! i love love love the second one you put together, with the orchids.  it ties in the other centrepieces together so nicely because you are using the same flower 🙂

    if you don’t mind me asking, how tall are your branches? i am in love with that idea and i’m thinking about DIY mine also!
