Flower Place Setting Ideas

I made a few orange peonies using a lovely sheer orange/coral polyester fabric and I'm envisioning using them something like these ideas:
They could be placed on the napkins.
I could place them on the plates with name tags or menus.
I could put them into low vases with greenery.
Or I could arrange them in the center of the table under taller floral arrangements for some clusters of colour.

What do you like best?

Fabric Flower Styles

With an abundance of tutorials available on how to make fabric flowers, I have started to collect images of fabric flowers to give me ideas on what I want my flowers to look like.

Which kind is your favourite?

Table and Name Place Card Ideas

I've been browsing Martha Stewart Weddings online and these are a few Table Place card ideas that caught my eye.
DIY Table Place Cards
These raggedy edged leaves look very fresh and would go well with a Fall theme.
 If flowers are expensive, why not use a fabric or paper flower as your table decoration, favour, and place setting.

Some fabric flower tutorials:
Magnolia blooms with real magnolia leaves
All you need are stamp pads in your wedding colours and a good sharp x-acto knife... 
 If you have a lot of ribbon in your wedding colours (which I might), this is a good way to put it to use neatly.
 These would be very pretty hanging from somewhere all together.
 Painted rocks!  I love painting rocks!
