aw centerpiece i designed... is it too small?

Ok, so it's not 100% but i am really liking this, and i made it myself, but the FI thinks it's too small... keep in mind our tables for the reception are small round tables that seat 10... they have the same glass piece about double the size as well... Also, here is shown silk flowers, but I will be using real flowers, and I am sure I need more white roses, maybe the petals in the goblett to be all white rose petals? what do you think?!?!?! Ideas!!!! tia!!!

I don't think it is too small.  To be very sure, ask your venue if you can do a mockup, where they take out plates glassware, silverware, etc and you put the centerpieces in.  Then you can see the whole picture.  I personally don't think it is too small but it is hard to tell without actually seeing all of it.  I went to my venue and mocked everything up and this helped a lot.

for a table of 10 that is kind of small. But it is beautiful! i'm super impressed. what about just adding more candles around it? that might make it a little bigger.

Great job. What if you put a mirror under it. That creates the illusion of more space. Looks amazing.

Very pretty!  I love the winding ivy and your design idea...the size should be fine when you add the additional flowers.  Great job!

I think the design of it is beautiful, but I'd have to agree that it's a tad small for a table for 10.  Not by much though!  Is there anyway you could prop it up on something for extra height or maybe add more flowers or foliage for some extra "girth"?  BEAUTIFUL job overall though!!  :D

I love the design!  The spiral wrap of the ivy is great and the roses look like they're actually on the vine instead of just placed :)  Maybe you could sprinkle rose petals around it base if you want an effect that covers more area?

I don't think its the size thats the issue, I think it's the way the roses are surrounding them makes it seem like something is missing.  Maybe placing a plate on the top and having draping crystals/moss with a little more volume may work better?  Also if the candle holders are slighly smaller or clear, it will contrast the center piece and make that seem a little bigger..
