I just went for my centerpiece mock up this weekend.. we are going for sort of an Arabian theme and I want lots of palm trees and lushness.. so I gave her my inspiration pic, and here is what she came up with.. what do u think?
We opted to NOT have the crystals… but tell me what you think! I’m kind of panicking because I feel it looks off, and they’re costing a lot of money.. let’s hear it girls!

Thecenterpiece itself is nice. I am not too keen on the things spread out on the morrors. Maybe you can put just candles there or something. And I actually like the crystals!

Don’t care for the mirrors at all but it looks great otherwise. However do you care that it isn’t as full as the inspiration pic? Or do you prefer that it be scaled down as in the trial?

I think it looks very close. The original is a little fuller and taller though, and I am in agreement, I don’t really like whatever it is that is on the mirror.

I agree with @prncssDva – I like the centerpiece (vase, etc) but not so sure about what’s on the mirrors. I like the candles but is it a cut mango that’s around the vase? It looks like fruit to me.

thanks guys for your opinions!!!
yes it is fruit.. its actually a cactus pear cut open, and dates, dried apricots as well as nuts on the mirror.. sort of to evoke that arabian lushness with the fruit and palms.. does that make a bit more sense? I know its kind of random.. but she is going to drape the ceiling with lanterns and fabric so it would sort of look like a casbah or oasis..

I feel like it’s too spindly. The one in your inspiration pick is definitely fuller. I also don’t like the random stuff on the mirror, it feels haphazard and a bit of an afterthought.
The greenery at the top is great, but I think you need a bit of a wider vase a few more flowers to fill it out and getting closer to your inspiration.

I think yours is WAY better than the inspiration pic! I like the more narrow vase and taller greenery too. Glad to see other things/colors on the mirrors…everyone does just candles and this adds a different,more unique element. Great job!

It’s nice and different, but I like it with just candles on the mirrors.

I think if you’re going to use the mirror under the vase then you need to use round mirrors to go with your tables, the rectangle mirror looks off. I also dont like the fruit thrown on there at all, it looks random to me. If you want the fruit, why not do some of the tables with your dramatic arrangements, and then do the rest of the tables with various bowls and different height cake plates with exotic fruits & nuts with flowers (maybe orchids) scattered about. Candles would be nice too. Good luck!
