I like the colors of the bottles and having a different glitter one, but all 3 being the same height is not very visually interesting.  Is it possible to find a smaller wine bottle to throw into the mix, or maybe large beer bottle?

I agree with needing varying heights. Like the gold and the hydrangea.

I agree with pp, different height, width bottles would make it more visually appealing! But the paint job looks great! Looks store bought! 🙂

Agree with PP. At least one bottle of a different height would help. I also likek that two of the wine bottles are sightly different shapes. The rest looks great!

JNDtheBrideToBe:  The paint job looks great! I’d actually forgo the rose petals. I think it might clutter the sleek, modern look you have going. To each their own though whatever you want to do! I hear you on the “collecting things from friends” thing! haha.

JNDtheBrideToBe:  I think it looks fine as is. It could look even better with some variation in height. You can do that with some shorter bottles, or by elevating one bottle on something- a wood slice, glass turned upside down etc.

You don’t have to limit yourself to wine bottles, although you could use a half bottle or a split of champagne. I would definitely keep all the bottles gold or glitter though.

I would use an odd number of votives as odd numbers are more visually pleasing, and not use the petals. You said you wanted to modernize the wine bottles, but rose petals are rather old fashioned/vintage decor and look out of place when there are no roses in the centerpiece from which they could have fallen.

Great job on the painting!

JNDtheBrideToBe:  Just a quick question, will your venue (being a museum and all!) allow you to have real candles? Might be good to check 🙂 Our venue makes us use LED tealights (rooftop venue) so I’d be sure of that.

The height of the bottles doesn’t bug me but two gold, one glitter does a bit. I’d suggest a different paint color or style to make the 3rd one different!

Also, you can vary the height of the flowers to get a bit more visual interest too!

I agree with a PP that I don’t think you need the rose petals. To me it will go against the modern look of the painted bottles. But I do think you need some floral down lower to give some varying height and this will save you from all the PPs saying you need some smaller bottles. Can you leave the bottles as is the place one hydrangea at the bottom of the cluster of bottles, sort of poking out from in between them? I don’t really know how to explain what I mean but have a play (and post some photos if you like).

I agree with another size bottle for sure. You could even cut your wine bottle in half for an open vase to change it up a little. I like that there is a glitter one to break it up a little. I also think it would be nice if the candle holders were an accent color or something.

They do have some extra large beer bottles, like specialty beers, not the usual 6 packs.  It’s not just us that finds it not as visually interseting, so I’m sorry if you are offended by the creative criticism, espeically when you asked for opinions.  If you look at designers and stuff, groupings of items are generally in 3+ and vary in size or height a bit.
