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.

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.

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.

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.
