I know you ladies will come up with something amazing,
So this weekend I purchased 20" glass cylinder vases that are about 4 inches around. For $3.50 each! I could not pass them up, even though I have no idea what to do with them.
I am doing a 1920ish style wedding with blue and silver, in March.
We are trying to do this for as little money as possible, so that rules out too many flowers.
What would you do to make these vases work?
thanks for your help!!

The first thing that comes to mind for me is a submerged flower centerpiece. You could use artificial or real flowers, fruit, and even candles and/or ribbon to get it in line with your theme.
If you used the artificial kind, you would just need to secure the stem to the bottom with a bit of clear silicone adhesive.
I found a few images for inspiration – Good luck!

Have you thought about floating or drowning flowers? I’ll attach some pics. Also, what are your colors? If you have a color that is also a fruit, such as lime, lemon, apple red, apple green, you could fill the vases with the fruit. I don’t have any pics of that but I know you could find some. Hope it helps!

WOW! these are some beautiful ideas! thanks so much! Our colors are dark blue and silver, so I can’t think of any fruit that would be pretty… but I am using Calla Lily’s for my flowers, I love how that looks under water!

You could also add some colored marbles, colored water and a floating candle, which would look very luxe.
I’m wrapping my square vases in striped vellum to make these
