You could always talk to the store manager of dollarama and ask them to order them in for you. I have a link on my pinterest for cheap glassware I’ll find it and link you.
Update: I’ve found this pic, but instead of the flowers in the middle I want it filled in with more floating candles (no submerged flowers for my purposes) and then a border of vases with a single rose/other flower surrounding all of the candles.
dollarama will sell to you by the case, you just have to ask.
I don’t know where in Ontario you are, but there’s a store in Guelph, on the old highway to Kitchener that sells overstock restaurant pieces that’s open to the public (things from places that have gone belly up etc) can’t for the life of me remember what it’s called though.
also – what on earth are you going to do with all those glasses after!?!
I am guessing you got the photo off of Pinterest.
Using GOOGLE IMAGES SEARCH, I was able to find what looks to be the original here c/o Dream Design Decor out of Atlanta Georgia
I think it is GORGEOUS, but I’d certainly have concerns about both COST & SAFETY (that is a boatload of candles… and some places aren’t that jazzed about having just 1 on a table… so before you go down the road very far on this idea / project… I suggest you talk to your Venue)
To me, in the last photo, they look like tall clear shot glasses with a votive floating.
And I found this interesting Forum Discussion for you… that might prove enlightening on the topic of buying “Restaurant Glass” in Ontario… in particular the comments made by Bill Cunningham
Hope this helps,
Wow thanks for all of your responses – you guys are so awesome!
I figure people could take them or since I love to throw majorly outrageous parties I could find a use somewhere down the line haha. Plus I figure we’re bound to miss some the next morning when we package them up from the venue (which is allowing candles thank goodness!)
I had no idea Dollarama would sell by the case, that is awesome!
Thank you for finding the original!
@MsGinkgo: This is true. Hm. A few weddings I have been to have incorporated the vase/centre piece giving in a game. Numbers under the seat signified how many of the pieces a person could take, etc. Since people sat in any chair they wanted at their designated table, they never knew that the card with the number was there until it was announced.
Ladies, I’m starting to think I can get this look with a lucite box. I would (hopefully) put enough floating candles in the box that they wouldnt move around…What do you think? Just unsure how to get a lush floral look. I still want to incorporate some flowers here… maybe some sort of floral wreath wrapping around the bottom of the box? or rose petals? hmmm
