I just made my centerpiece prototype! I’m so excited! What do you think? Any changes or just as is?
Also, you’ll notice the inspiration photo has wheatgrass around the base. I’d like to do this, but it will be labor intensive… Can I get away without it, or should I do it, do dress up the table?

It looks pretty good, but you need more curly willow to fill out the top of the base, also I would say to shorted them up a bit.

i agree to shorten the branches, and maybe add more volume in the vase with more flowers or bigger headed flowers, otherwise very nice

I think either shorten it and keep the same flowers. Or if you want the tall go for more volume in the flowers. It is beautiful and you are on the right track. I just think with the height the volume seems small.

Really pretty! I agree that you need more curly willow stuff coming out of the top. Did you think about doing hydrangeas and roses to make the flowers fuller? I really like it though!

I agree with trimming the tops and adding curly to the top and inside the vase! Make it more airy not heavy! =] But i love it! Great job!

Im doing the same thing, damask and all too! But Im using purple as my sprinkle color….The only difference is I filled mine up with white marbles, add an LED purple ice cube in and add water. This gives the table ambiance!

Love it….isn’t this fun! Maybe shorten the branches (but from the bottom, cutting the top would effect the curly’s) and add alittle more volume in the flowers. Are you using silks or real?
As far as the wheat grass…I think it is important that centerpieces fill the center of a table. So if you don’t like wheat grass maybe alot of candles or a more inexpensive solution is Ferns. You can even spray paint them for design effect. See below: The black around the base are spider ferns painted with black glitter spray. The amazing thing about the ferns are once they are painted they stay forever. I have the black ferns you see below in my gargage for 6 months now and they look like the day I did them. So run around your neighborhood and ask to cut some branches off their ferns till your wedding. wink
Hope that helps! Beautiful Job on the centerpiece.

I am also very curious where you got your large vase from. These are gorgeous! I do agree to either shorten the branches or fill our the flowers.

This is absolutely gorgeous! How tall are your vases? Where are they from and how much did they cost? I’m planning on doing something similar, but with red flowers. Thanks! 😉

where did you get your curly willow from?

Sorry for the delay girls…
The vases are 20″x5″, and I haven’t purchased them yet, but plan on buying them from DFW Glassware. They are $8.20 each, but you have to buy cases of 6. This is the cheapest I have found, and I have SEARCHED everywhere.
The curly willow I also haven’t purchased yet, but I think I will buy from Save On Crafts, unless someone has a better suggestion!
Since I’ve made this prototype, my table has changed. lol I must have wedding decor ADHD , I just can’t commit! ah! Although the centerpieces will remain (of course, with more willow added, as everyone has suggested). I will be sure to put the new prototype once I have played around more & finalized it!

Are you using fake flowers or real? They are gorgeous! I’m loving the idea. I’m getting married next fall, and I want something similar!!!

I’m hot gluing fake flowers to the willows, but getting real hydrangeas for the vases.
