1. not DIY and may be too expensive

2.This would be possible to copy if you could find city skyline paper that you could cut out , or print on the computer, and glue to a vase. Add some stick on stars and a votive candle.

Google “free cityscape silhouette clipart” available online.

they also have city skyline confetti

3.something simple like this in your colors would work

4.otherwise, cities make me think of black, silver, bricks, lights.

i was thinking black paper cut like buildings/skyline with holes cut out for windows, wrapped around a cylendar vase with a candle inside, to light up the windows. i would do like 3 vases per centerpeice, in different heights.

you can probably find actual skylines from actual citys in sillhouette and do a different city at each table, then the name of the city can be the table number.

i just realized thats pretty much the same thing the last poster said, i should have read it first. lol.

If you are in a glass dome with teh skyline all around you, maybe you don’t need skylines as your centerpieces. Maybe just a bunch of candles at different heights would work. Sounds like the beauty of the room is the city skyline. Why take away from that? Just a thought.

I have a similar situation, but overlooking the Manhattan Skyline. I don’t want to compete but continue the theme. So I’m doing various heights of cylinder vases with submerged roses and a floating candle in each. I’ll then have a couple smaller candles around it. So when you look at the room as a whole, it has varying heights like the skyline. It’s subtle but looks super elegant.

I don’t think it’d be bad to leave the vases empty but you could add some colored glass stones at the bottom or even color the water if you were looking to change it up a little.

You could put flowers in the vases. I think they would look ok empty too. I agree to put some colored stones or even those florilytes that will color the water.

You could get some different color, different height laquered boxes (or make them in purple, green, etc), place them in a 4-square pattern and put vases w/ floating candles on top of them.  I think that for something modern and city themed, rectangular vases would be amazing on top of rectangular boxes…  The place all 4 on a mirror and watch it sparkle.

Or you could use black laquer boxes and tint the water purple, green, etc…
