I like it and I’m excited to see it with the wood base. Maybe it needs some more flowers to make the vase a little fuller.

Looks good! Only thing I would check is to see how long the votive candles will last once lit. You may want to get a bit of a longer buirn out of them. Some only give a couple hours tops. Just a thought!

juneberries:  Then I would find something to pour in the votive holders to nestle the tealights in. It will help them look more realistic. You can use sand, aquarium gravel, lentils- anything that has the color you like.

What about spray painting the “Love” sign gold or some other color? Your lace and burlap wrapped mason jars are so soft and sweet, I think it would feel more cohesive if the sign was a softer color too.

i’m not loving the “love” sign. it just feels a little forced – you inspiration has a very natural, rustic feel, and the “love” sign doesn’t really feel like it goes with it.

juneberries:  i’d just nix it, personally. i think it would make a cute cake topper, but i generally don’t like “things” sticking out of flower arrangements…it feels cheesy/cheap to me. but if you love them, i would do what another poster suggested and paint them a different color – something either metallic or lighter so it doesn’t contrast your arrangment so much,

I agree that the “love” sign does not really go with all the other elements. My other suggestion would be to rotoate the table # so the top of the number would be below the hole punch on the label. This way, your guests wouldnot be reading a sideways table number.
