    Your centerpieces are so casual (love them btw). I think they would look out of place on lace…

    My opinion? I think it’ll look totally romantic and sweet. I think all iace IS kinda hardcore on a table but your centerpieces are quite simple and quirky and the wood is rustic so the lace won#t be too busy at all. I have simple tastes (usually) but I am diggin’ that idea.

    Curious to hear what others think…

    I don’t think the rusticness of the mason jars, daisies and wood goes with BRIGHT blue lace, sorry.

    If it’s any consolation, I really like your simple centerpiece mockups.

    I love lace but hate clutter. I think the lace overlay you chose ise beautifully balanced. It doesnt look heavy or over patterned- not cluttery, too busy at all. The color choice is perfect. If you get worried about it being too much just get a lighter colored overlay.

    @lovelyduckie:  Hold your horses!! Ok, I just read that again and saw the lace was teal (and not ivory. I misunderstood!)


    Ok, nope, gotta adjust my opinion. I think that might be a bit much. 


    But seriously: do what YOU like in the end!! (You’ll see whn you do a mock up pretty quick if it really is too much, so let that decide.)

    @lovelyduckie:  I think you should at least try it. I would be more keen to see ivory lace on teal tableclothes but i still like the idea with the colors reversed. I am just hesitant to commit either way before seeing a mock up
