I think it looks nice but a I think it should be tweaked a little bit as there is a lot of different textures. I would just use pearls in the candleholder but add more and lay the an extra large votive on top of the pearls. Same with the candle in the middle, just use a lot of pearls bout no flower. Also, I wouldn’t Use any sand. I feel like the sand is out of place with the look of the centerpiece.
i think if you did that it would make the centerpiece more cohesive

I like it, but I’d go with 3 of the smaller vases as uneven numbers are more visually appealing.

@Jillian04: I was just browsing pinterest, saw this, and thought of your post. I don’t know if you have table numbers, or even like these, but thought I’d share!

They’re pretty! The only thing I would recommend changing would be to either take the pearls off the tray or arrange them so that there’s no gap.

@Luvinlife: i will test run your idea, i’m just worried that would be too many pearls.
@JenGirl: I will also try that once I buy more vases. Though, I do like the middle one with the flower on the bottom not sure if i am willing to give that up…thank you!
@LeeBee88: I love those! I have beem wanting to incorporate lace somehow so maybe I could do it with a dark lace instead of burlap and the pearls. Thank you!!
@futuremrste: those pearls laying around the edges are going to go. I wanted to fill up space but i am going to try flower petals

I think what you have is well on it’s way, but it seems to need a little more oomph.
Here are some ideas I found :
I also agree with adding more vases, I’m not sure where you got those but the dollar tree has very similiar vases for $1 each, you could also add some taper candles for more height.

@jenilynevette: Thank you for the ideas. I really like the first one but the pearls seem to go where they want in the water. I bought all of these vases at the dollar tree. I will try adding some more vases with different designs. I just dont want it to be over bearing. My wedding is juat going to be a ceremony and brunch. No large reception.

I don’t like them. The pearls are all clustered at the plate’s edge, and their texture mirrors the texture on the plate, but there are gaps. It reminds me of a game with missing pieces. Sadly, I don’t think I would like it significantly more if it were a complete circle of pearls.
Maybe if you strung them and then sort of draped it around the candles like removed jewelry? Or busted out some liquid latex and stuck them on the plate to look like they were loosely sprinkled (shouldn’t damage the surface.)

I like the middle one too! I was recommending keeping the one large one in the middle (1 is uneven) and then having 3 small ones around it (3 is uneven). I realize that the toal number would be even, but because they’re significantly different looking, I think it will look like 1 and 3, which are both uneven. Now that I type this all out, I feel a little silly about harping on the uneven thing, but I think it would look best to do 1 big one in the middle and 3 small ones around it.

@Jillian04: Cute! I would keep all the candles on each tray to just one color though, and would get rid of the pearls on the tray itself.

@Jillian04: I would use 3 different heights for the vases, remove the pearls from the tray and push the vases together instead of spacing them out Like so… Also, take the flower(s) that are inside the center vase and lay/tuck it at the base of the vases. Instead of loose pearls, you could use string pearls and make stort of a “nest” around the three vases.
