@Jessicachantal:  You could fill vases with cherries, add water then float a candle on the top.

August seems like its kind of late for cherry season – at least in my neck of the woods.  Will you have any difficulty finding the amount you need at the price point you want?

I was wondering the same thing about cherries in season.  I love the idea though.  Maybe mix cherries and a few cherry branches in water.  Keep mixing it up till you hit on just the right thing.

@Jessicachantal:  End of August would be late for cherries here. Definitely try it out. You may have a problem with the cherries floating.

@Jessicachantal:  So… are they meant to be eaten, or will they just be thrown out…? Seems like a weird idea if they are to just be thrown out, fake ones would be the best way to go then 🙂 But then I also don’t think many people would eat them if that’s what you want either, unless its in a wide bowl haha 😛

You could try cranberries. They would probably be cheaper too. They may float though so you should test it out before hand.

Water pearls or marbles can also be an affordable option esp. buying bulk off a website or even ebay. They come in a wide variety of colours. I know they aren’t the same as fruits, but it is a budget-friendly option.

I would actually suggest filling the bottom with water pearls or marbles, buying a single stem flower to be submerged in the water, and have a floating candle on top.

Here are some suggestions:

@Jessicachantal:  Until right now I’ve never googled “fake cherries”  – I had no idea there were such things.  There’s quite a price range on them … but you could probably find some that would work relatively inexpensively.

@Jessicachantal:  Sounds like a lovely idea!

I love the way the apples look on the right with the flowers mixed in….so pretty!!

I found this on google images with the cherries and a candle which is really pretty

@Jessicachantal:  

How about instead of doing cherries in the cylinder vase, do a Cherry Blossom branch in the tall cylinder vases then have some smaller votive candle vases or just smaller vases around the cylinder one and put cherries in those. 

That way you wouldnt have gobs of cherries left from the wedding and it would cut down on costs of the cherries.

@Jessicachantal:  Ohh, I get it now! 😛 Very cute I think!

 

@cmoest:  Love this idea!

What about having a small handful of cherries in the bottom of the vase (like they use rocks) and having some gorgeous cherry blossoms sticking up out of them? Ties in well and you wont have a mass amount of cherries (or even fake ones, what do you do with a kilo of fake cherries??)

@julies1949:  What about cranberrys?  I’m not sure if they are out yet at that time, but they are a lot cheaper then cherries and same color!
