@Lindsay22:  Post another pic. I’m too lazy to search and it will get you more responses. 🙂

That is awful that they won’t fit! I am doing a similiar idea, except I’m using eiffel tower glasses and I’m going to turn them into mini chandaliers, homemade of course, using most likely round platters and putting either a feather centerpiece on top, or a pomander :

I plan to get really long glow sticks and put those in it. If for some reason those don’t do the trick, I will get a pole to go in the center of the vase, and use flexible led lights to wrap around the pole, then put it in the vase.

Yeah, I’ll try to find something like that too.. although if I got the frosted vases that would probably hide them well. I’ll most likely use some type of small table scatter [smaller than the normal kind], or maybe even some suncatcher paint all in the inside of the vase to help disguise it… not sure, I’ll have to look into it!

@Lindsay22:  I don’t know the answer but your dog in the background is really cute.  🙂

There are floral up lights that the vases sit on. Maybe that is the best route since they are so narrow.

@jenilynevette:  

Glow sticks are great ideas. You can buy long skinny ones (necklace size) and maybe find some super small clear pebbles to put around them to hide. I haven’t seen a ‘clear’ glow sticks, though. I’m sure someone has made one somewhere. Keep searching online. Thats how I found the Bee actually. I came across a thread about lighting lanterns.

Oh! And there is also led ‘fairie’ string lights that are water proof but you would have to somehow hide the battery pack in the flowers. It would be supercute though because you can only see the teeny tiny lights, not the string if it’s in a vase. Let us know what you come up with!

@Lindsay22:  You could use Balloominators. They are small lights- small enought to be inserted into a ballon- about the size of a large horse- pill  vitamin. Easy to turn on and rop down into the vase at the appropriate time.

You can twist the ends to give you a steady light or a flashing light.
