Those are really pretty but you’re right that they seem taller than the inspiration pic.  The flowers there come above the bowl about the same height as the bowl itself, and in yours the height is about the same as your entire compote.  And it does look a little dark in the non-flower areas. I do like the berries, is there a lighter variety they might be able to use? Or lighter colored greenery?

I really love the compotes though, great job on that! I never would have guessed dollar store.  The whole thing is really nice overall and I think it would be fine without changes but I know how crazy we get about details!

The one thing that strikes me is overall – your flowers and green arrangement is much much darker in color scheme. If that’s what you are going for, all for it. if not, search for lighter colored greens and flowers. 

If you want a lighter colored berry, as for hypernicum. Relatively cheap filler comes in bright light green, red, pink and white. 

I’ll agree with you – it seems like your floral arrangement comes out of the bowl much highter than your inspiration, it needs to be lower. 

Keep in mind – more flowers equals more $$$, so be wise and make sure you stay within budget.

@multinational:  Is the bowl just sitting on top of the candlestick?  Or how did you attach those?  I LOVE the color of the bowls.  Very pretty!

@multinational:  Your florist needs the green oasis- it is the best to use for gresh flowers. If you are concerned about seeing the floral foam through the walls of the vase, ask your florist to line the compote with something lighter before they add the flowers.

As the pp has said, you could ask the florist to use hypericum berries instead.

The bowl turned out great!! I actually love the berries in the inspiration pic – its one of the things I noticed right away and automatically loved, but the ones in your mockup are quite dark. Is there a lighter variety you could try? If not then I agree with you about not using them. I think lighter greens would make a huge difference, but overall I think it looks great!

I’m not trying to plug myself at all, but as a photographer I can tell you the original image looks  light and airy because of the editing and lighting. Your photo has the light behind your flowers. The greens would look much brighter if you were taking the photograph with the light facing the flowers and behind you. do not get too discouraged about that. I think it looks beautiful.

They look fantastic – and I can promise you, if they look that good in your mockup, they are going to look phenomenal the day of when they have the whole rest of the room done up. Mockups are so deceiving because the lighting/surroundings/details are all a bit off. If it looks like a 7 in a mockup, it will look like a 10 the day of. Nice job!

It looks great! If you’re still testing out paint options, I would look into the Martha Stewart glass paint line (they carry it at Michaels). It comes in so many colors and different finishes so you can get the frosted look in ONE step. There’s also this special attachment that converts any of their paints to a spray (I think it’s called the Glass Paint Spray Paint Kit). Might be worth investing in one more tool to make your life easier! Good luck!
