Have you tried a non-floral vendor? Try just party rental/event rental companies. Since they aren’t in the flower business, they may be less restrictive.

Hahaha I HATE centerpieces. For some reason, FI and I discussed that during one of our first phone conversations lol. The idea of spending money on it just doesn’t make sense to me. I once went to a retirement party at a wedding hall and we have a great time. It was set up as nice as a wedding but there were no centerpieces! Yet everyone still had a wonderful time. Imagine that. 

Of course, since I feel like I have to have them, I’ve come to terms with the idea of a lantern centerpiece. And, since a friend just offered to gift me my flowers, she’s going to do some pretty flowers around them.

@DanceawaytheNight:  The gallery online looks a little limited, but you should speak to them directly anyway. They might be into getting some for you! I worked with a vintage rental place here in WI and they were open to searching for stuff for clients if it fit the style of their inventory.

@DanceawaytheNight:  Hmmm.  I live in Columbus.  My husband works with a lot of event companies and works in theatre.  I’ll talk to him and see if he has any suggestions.  Could you post or PM me a picture of what you’re looking for?

I’m doing DIY centrepieces for my DW!

We’re doing long rectangular tables, which, for some people it would end up being more expensive, but for us it will be cheaper!

Were going 3 mason jars of different heights in the middle, painted with gold glitter on the inside with votives inside.. and for the rest of the table were doing very small vases that hold a single flower.. probably 5 ish on either side.

I’m having about 4-5 table and my budget is $30/table including flowers, table “numbers”, etc.

I’m not a fan of centerpieces. If they weren’t included with the vendor we would have been putting a few pilar candles in the middle and calling it a day


Which, I suppose, is still kind of a centerpiece….but I fee.l like it’s more funtional than flowers since it’s providing light. Am I crazy?
