I’m DIY-ing my centerpieces. Let me know which one you like best and if you have any suggestions to make them better feel free to comment.
The one on the left is gerbera daisies they’re supposed to be white, but i could only find the ivory ones that day, the middle one is an orchid and the last one is stock flowers.

They’re all pretty but my favorite is the last one- the stock flowers. I like the height of them as well as looking like they’re fresh out of the garden. The orchid would be my second choice, but it’s more formal looking than the other two.

i would do all 3 on diff tables.. i would maybe stack some books or blocks to give the stock some height..but you could def play around and get a unique look!

I love the idea of using all 3 and putting them on different tables!

I like the stock best because it fills up the vase and just looks complete. My second choice would be the gerberas and it’s not that I don’t like the orchid it just looks lonely in that big vase.

i’d say use all 3 of them in different sized vases on the SAME table!

The general rule of thumb for floral arrangements is: The height of the flowers should only be slightly more than the height of the vase.
Now, that doesn’t apply with pomanders, submerged flowers, etc, but in the case of your gerbs and stock, I think it does.
I’d suggest giving the flowers more height by adding some of the rocks you’ve used for your orchids at the bottom of all of the vases. Another great item to use would be bear grass- it’s tall and can be used sparingly in the arrangments to add height. Since the vases are quite large, it might be a little overbearing to make such large arrangements, in which case, I’d stick with the orchid arrangement, or get some smaller vases to use for the other flowers.
Great job so far!

The way you have the orchid is super cute and unique.
