wow fruitcakes02….I love those roses, I wouldn’t have known they were made from coffee filters.  How did you do that?  Also the coloring is so perfect….I want to steal your idea some how! 🙂

Lovely! I really like your centerpieces! We are going to make manzanita centerpieces and this has inspired me to add flowers to ours! I would suggest using black river rocks. We bought ours at the dollar store, believe it or not, and they will help to stabilize the centerpiece and add more depth. Great job, though!

I like your centerpieces and great job on the flowers. I do wonder if you may want to increase the diameter of the arrangement or add votives around the bottom. Depending on the size of your tables you may need a little more size.

One cheap thing that I did for filler (those river rocks get expensive) is buy a bag of pea gravel from Home Depot and a 98 cent can of black spray paint and i just spread it out over news paper and for about $7 I had like 20 lbs of filler. WAY cheaper than river rocks at over a dollar a lb.

I think they look great.  Kudos to you for having the patience and talent to create those roses!  I think they will look even better with something in the vase.

I think they look great…my only suggestion would be to use a vase that flares a little on the bottom..I think this would create a lovely balance to the piece.
