catsanddogs:  I like it, although IMO the paper cranes seem like they don’t “go” with the rest of the items. But not a bad mock up at all, bee!

catsanddogs:  Your puppy is too precious!  Love the headband!

I like the mockup too – except it seems to have a lot going on judging by your description.  I really believe for asthetics and functionality, less is more when it comes to the tables.  I think the cranes are really cute, but there seems to be too many – unless you can use them as placeholders or such?

I would get empty glasses to use as your honey favours, and put plates cutlery etc on the table to really visualise how it will look.

catsanddogs:  Oooh, haha sorry misread.  I thought they were decorations and you were having honey jars as well.

I reiterate that the cranes could be great for placeholders, if you don’t have anything else planned for them?

Love the tablecloth and bunting too by the way!

Can you do smaller honey jars? Those are unusually large for favors and also seem to throw the balance of the table off.

Teddy is just so cute; those eyes!

I really like where you’re going with your theme. There are some adjustments I suggest:

– leave the cranes; their color is “off”; although you mention craft in your theme, they just don’t connect with the country charm that your other elements suggest.

-if your other vintage tablecloths are similar to the one you posted, are the placemats really necessary? I would consider them to detract from the beauty of your tablecloths.

-as other PP have mentioned, the bottles for the honey favors could be smaller. Also, it’s best if the fabrics used for the tops are like those used for the bunting. The bottles on the photo below could be a good size:

I would try a mockup where you use solid fabric under the plates and see what you think….four different colors, but solid.  I think that gets the rainbow part going, but without as much busy-ness. And the colors would really pop on the white tablecloths.  I collect quilts and vintage tablecloths so I LOVE what you have going there, but a little bit of pattern goes a long way.  Use the floral/patterned pieces down the center of the rectangular table to define your centerpiece areas.  Your colors are going to look so pretty.
