I have had my eyes on a particular centerpiece for a while and I am/was determined to get it! I’ve been getting quotes from tons of florists for $250+ ea for the type of centerpiece I want. NO Way!!
This only cost me $32 including the vase!
I took a crack at it so please tell me what you think? Do you like it, hate it, is it missing something, is it too much??

@S_hazeleyes: I love everything except the feathers.. maybe I’m a feather hater. LOL. But seriously, for a fraction of the cost, it looks beautiful!

I like it- you did a pretty amazing job re-creating the original! The only thing I would change is to make the round lower part fuller & not so tight/together. Looking at it the bottom white flower part appears to be more of a flower band around the vase than a full floral arrangement… Other than that it’s gorgeous!

@Janaic88: Lol! I was unsure about it too. The funny thing is is that those aren’t even flowers! Some kind of fluffly plant! I will remove them so I can see if it looks better!

I think the bottom on your version needs to be wider and looser. But they;re really not bad as-is.

Any advice on what I can do (besides add more flowers) to make the underneath looks better? My guests will be able to see it while sitting at the table.I
I didnt trim the stems down enough yet!

Did you use silk flowers? It’s gorgeous and for a fraction of the price!

Love this. Well done you! The only thing do can think of off the top of my head to solve the visible from the bottom issue is maybe fill with water and float a fairly thick layer of petals on top of the water? That way from the bottom all you will see is the floating petals? This sounds silly even to me when I type it – hopefully the other bees have more ideas for you!

I think it’s beautiful!! If you’re wanting to hide the underside of the flowers maybe put a thick white ribbon around the top of the vase. It might be a pretty cost efficient way to hide it if the ribbon is large enough.

Can you cover the styrofoam in your wedding colors fabric before you put the flowers in?
