Traditional Christmas centerpiece How-To

Handmade Xmas centerpiece with red ornaments: balls, flowers, candle, dried fruit

This centerpiece is beautiful for its colors, only red and orange. The differences are in their shades.
So I chose transparent, opaque and bright red Christmas balls, orange silk roses with a touch of gold. Finally candle: it turns more to red. Beauty is subjective: I think it is the perfect combination of colors. And you, what do you think about?
