I imagine you’ll do something to fill out the center a bit more?  It looks fine to me that part notwithstanding.

Overall I think it’s gorgeous! I agree with previous poster, the only thing I see about it is that it doesn’t feel as full as it could be. I’d get a little extra to bulk up the middle of it!

Love it but needs something extra between those two red flowers

Meglin :  very beautiful! And way nicer than mine from the florist!! Just make sure you can get peonies. I wanted them, but they ended up not being available at the last minute.

I love it! The peony on the right is a big too big perhaps, but would be great if you can fill up with some little flowers more.

Too busy. Sorry, but that’s my honest opinion.  The peonies are pretty but otherwise there’s to much going on.

I like it. I don’t think it needs any thing else. For $40 that isn’t bad.

I don’t like the giant peony on the right.

Also, while I generally like this a lot, I do see what other posters mean about it looking a little busy and maybe not being full enough in the center.

Maybe there’s too much contrast between the colors (I see deep pink, light pink, medium purple, white, and yellow/orange). I think it would seem less busy if you chose colors more in one color family, replacing some of your current flowers and adding in others that match the color family better:

Deep pink, light pink, lavender, white (no yellow/orange, no medium purple)


Deep pink, light pink, peach, and white (no purple, no yellow/orange)

Just my .02!

Hi, gorg bouquet!  I might place some of the filler greenery on the outside rather than the middle.  Think flower bouquet videos say odd numbers work so think about picking 3 of the same flowers and arranging them and then 3 / 5 more until you have the look that you like.

How many centerpieces do you have to make?  I think $40 a centerpiece is way too much for something handmade like this.
