I think it might not be enough. Can you kind of make one up and take a look at it. Even if it’s not the right picture?

It depends on how big your tables are, and how many people will me sitting at them. Here is what we did with our centerpieces, and since we got a sweetheart table for ourselves, we did something smaller(table with white overlay)

Oh, and btw, the stone centerpiece is a 12″ round mirror, and the short tree centerpiece is a 10″ round mirror. They are for sale, I have 6 of each!

You could do a castle like this out of white foam core.

 

Just do a drawing based on a pic from the internet. Make two for each table, cut slits in the center so they stand at right angles to each other.

i like the idea. What size are your tables? Your fishbowls could be small, or your photos could be large, if youre worried about space.

you could try printing the photos on vellum and putting them in a frame, glueing 4 frames together and making a lantern.  I did something similar but with photos of us,  I think I saw them on Martha Stewart website.  Here’s a pic of what I did,  each lantern cost about $8 to complete – including printing/paper/glue/frames….

@SweetRose2011:  I’m in New Zealand – they were at a shop called The Warehouse – $1 each!  Ikea usually have wooden ones super cheap but we don’t have an Ikea here so I had to hunt them down!

They took about 30 mins to make each one and the first 2 were really frustrating but totally worth it!   They weren’t lit in this photo but look great when they have a tealight in the middle.
