To me they just seem a little small.

Fiance suggests putting a blue ribbon or incorporating something blue.

i like the flower portion but i’m not sure about the vase in the first picture.  maybe try something without a stem.  what’s the overall look you are going for?

hmm well you could easily do something like in the third picture with gift bags.  have you thought about using wooden baskets or canning jars?  what about painting terracotta pots blue?

Big Lots has 12 packs of large mason jars for $7 and you could also check around at your local thrift stores for vases and jars.  Having them mismatched would give it a more eclectic and vintage feel.  And just as a personal thing I would skip the baby’s breath and go for all wild flowers or half wild flowers and half greenery. 

In this one they painted tin cans blue (that would fit all your colors:)

I dont know if youre open to it, but hydrengas are great. To me, they totally give a vintage feeling. I love the mason jar/paint can idea too. I think that could look awesome!!  Good luck! 🙂

I think they’re nice, but maybe the flowers need to be packed a bit more. Could you fill it out a bit with a filler flower, like more baby’s breath, or yellow carnations, daisies etc? You could do it with greenery as well if the flowers will end up too expensive.

I agree that the vase in the first pic is not quite right. Hmmn. The tin cans or gift bags posted by others are totally do-able though!!
