jsloops:  You could get cylinder vases from Dollar Tree for $1 and use those for your white roses.

Fil the square vase with white river rock and add just one orchid bloom.

I had blue orchids in my centrepieces (LOVE THEM!) and my centrepieces ended up costing me around $55 each (including the ice cube light) – but that also depends on your florist and their prices. I couldn’t do candles either because we were in an Art Gallery. I know mine aren’t short, but you can get idea of how the orchids sit and using the light in the vases (which I liked better than candles anyway). Here’s a pic: I also saw these photos of short centrepieces with the orchids and roses I thought were rather pretty (ignore the shell in the one):

Good luck!

I have been experimenting with submerged flowers for the last few weeks and the blue orchids and pale roses both look lovely this way.  I am going to use one of these options (or the glads).  


I bought a pack with the crystsals and one underwater LED at Dollarama for $3 each.  The orchid stayed nice for three days and the roses still look nice after 5 days.  They both floated up a bit and would look better properly weighted down.  I figured this out before I tried the glads.
