my colors are yellow gray and white and i’ve thought about using lemon centerpieces but i’m not sure yet.  I like these centerpieces especially the round ones but i was thinking of using white carnations.

From what I’ve seen you just stuff them full of lemons and they are forced to stay that way or you could cut them, stick them to the sides with a little sticky tack or light glue, then fill them (just throwing out some possibilities here).

If you have a floating candle at the top, won’t the candle itself kind of keep them from bobbing up?

just a word of caution with lemons limes etc in your centerpieces- DONT DO THEM THE DAY BEFORE

My mom is a florist and im sure you have all seen the commercial for the lemon arrangement. We’ll she had someone call from out of state to order one (she hadn’t seen it before) and sent it out. The next day got an irate phone call from the person who received it they said how horrible it looked because of the lemons being under water for a day.

Wow, I LOVE the look of those.  I actually currently have a lemon centerpiece on our dining room table–but they’re faux lemons.  I tried putting some water in there and they didn’t float, so maybe that would be an option.  Although they’re just regular lemons, not slices. I believe I got them as vase fillers at Target.

I think they’re beautiful but they have to tie in with your theming or colours – otherwise it looks totally out of place. I would be concerned about the cost, where i’m from, lemons tend to be pretty expensive

I had a quote for a florist here in cleveland and she wants about 350.00 to do them for 15 tables.  Considering what I already have to pay for my other flowers I don’t think this will be an option : (.

We used whole grapefruits and lemons for my gf’s engagement party. WATCH OUT! If you prepare them a couple days ahead of time, they might go moldy, esp if left out in room temperature!

But the fresh ones smelled lovely!
