More often than not, I'll tell a client, bigger (or more, or longer, etc.) is not the way to go. This is because it is a rare occassion when something a little bit bigger or a little more of will make as much a difference as the cost is worth. However, there are times when this is not at all the case. For instance, in these 2 pictures from a mock up earlier this week. The reception is being held in a split level room, and to force the eye to the view of the water (it is an amazing view) on the lower level, we needed tall centerpieces- really tall centerpieces. We started with the trumpet vase, and it looked great, but then when we put a few of the orchids in the tall one (it's at least a foot taller and thinner) and placed it on the table...wow. On top of that, the flowers we're actually getting are being flown in from Hawaii and are about 12 inches longer and have lush white blooms right to the tip of the stem; so that meant that they were going to be much bigger, and cascade even more. Oh my gosh its going to look so great.
