I’d cut the filler shorter and put it under the flowers, instead of how it is perpendicular in the photo.

I love it!  I think it looks wonderful!  If you think it looks too simple, don’t forget about all the other stuff that will be on the tables – plates, glasses, possibly bottles of wine.  I thought my centerpieces were too simple too, but once the table was filled up with all the place settings, it ended up looking just perfect.

I like it as is.

Do you have the sola flowers and fillers on both sides? Or, am I seeing a reflection?


I would consider having some of the flowers inside the lantern like this inspiration pic. If you are concerned about the risk of fire , is there anything else that you could  put in the lantern?

Then cluster the sola flowers outside.

No, no petals. I don’t think they go with the other elements you have on the table already. I think it looks good as is.

@JaysBridal:  I like the sola flowers. I’m not a fan of using the filler that way.

I think I would pick up on the river rock pictured in my inspiration pic. Make a base  of river rock around the base of the candle, top with 3 of the sola flowers, then spill the river rock and sola flowers out onto the cloth.

I agree with using the fuller parts of the filler stuff, but other than that I think it looks great!
