Ok, I’m trying to figure out what to do for my centerpieces. The theme of the wedding is tropical and it’s outdoors, very laidback. I have a million of those small glass fish bowls. Does anyone know what can I do (that’s inexpensive) with those, colored floralytes and the crystal gel beads? I was thinking maybe some silk flowers also but what kind and would that fit in the bowls???

Ooh! Put just one hibiscus flower on top of the gels, that would be GORGEOUS!

Regarding what to put in the bowls, one orchid or gardenia or even a rose would be beautiful with a little bear grass encircling the bowl. Surround with votives and some crystal rocks or ice for glitz. If you use preserved flowers, you don’t need water. For more info..please visit my website…
Good Luck, Liz Ann

Since they are fish bowls, why not a beta fish, if there will be kids at the wedding they can take them home, oh won’t their parents be so happy. But they are really pretty and if they were a little lit up they might be even prettier. Or take some cheap wooden trays or other serving dishes fill with sand, stick in some shells and place your bowl in the center with a floating flower in it. Hibiscus are gorgeous, but they close up at night and I’m not sure if they stay open when they are cut. Submerged flowers are really pretty too.
