Sure it does..but it looks a bit lost on the large table.

Kevin, if you're reading this, I decided to go with what I had (round silver mirror) and mercury glass to match. Thanks so much for your help, but I couldn't afford to make all those changes.

Thanks misspeggy! I'm planning to add some lambs ear to the bowls when I can. That should help, shouldn't it?

I think it is looking good. It seems odd from The photo angle as the table seems very long. But it only seats six. This is exactly what I had in mind.. Remember if you cannot find lambs ears, use sempervivum.

Thank you! I have two more of the larger size bowls I can do if you think it needs them.

I can be a bit over the top with design, so I would, but your style is more restrained and I think three is fine. You just need to see them filled with greenery to pick up and tie the curtain colour to the dining table.
For sempervivum, cut thick plastic and lay them in the bowls, add loads of gravel, and then put about 3-5 plants in each bowl. You only need to spray them with a hand spray about once a week.

Thank you so much!!!! Will it look just as well to do the faux from Michael's? I painted the inside of the bowls and I don't think I could do live.

The other two bowls are larger. Should I swap out the smaller two for two larger ones?

For the bowls, I like large, medium, small as a group. No problems for the faux plants
