DIY design help

I think I am on DIY overload.  We are having long banquet tables.  There will be 4 flower centerpieces alternating with red lanterns.  Each table is going to have a song that signals when they go to the buffet.  This is a sample.  That the runner fabric below it.  [IMG]http://i30.tinypic.com/2llk8zt.jpg[/IMG]Do you think it needs to be backed by some color?

    I truly don't understand PIP today.  I do the exact same thing EVERY time.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  Today it hates me.  Grrrr. Try #2 [IMG]<a href="http://i30.tinypic.com/2llk8zt.jpg" rel='nofollow'>http://i30.tinypic.com/2llk8zt.jpg</a>[/IMG]

    I think it looks nice just like that, since it has the rounded corners.

    I like the simplicity of the design, it looks very modern. If it is really bugging you. Then you can add a small simple border like a "stitch" or small dots to go with the colors and tie it into the fabric but nothing too overpowering. I am into simple design so I think its great.

    Thanks.  It wasn't bugging me per se.  LOL.  I am just chest deep in DIY projects and wanted to make sure that it wasn't too plain.  They will be the lowest 'object' on the table, so I didn't want them to get lost.  Currently, they are staying as is.  Darn current insomnia.

    Oct09, they aren't very large. I used 8.5x11 cardstock.  I formatted it so that I could fit 2 per sheet (and have the sign on both sides.)  Each sheet was cut in half to split the signs.  I just folded the sign in half.  Then, I used my corner rounder.    One of my easiest projects.
