How about a single rose submerged in a cylinder vase (dollar tree) with a bunch of pearly white marbles at the bottom?

An easy elegant centerpiece would be to use a squre vase, one color of flowers and keep the flowers all cut low at the same height.

Cymbidium Orchids in Square Vase. Centerpiece or Floral Arrangement  .  Orange Cream white Yellow Flame Red Light Lime Green Pink Cream via Etsy

nice tabel feature

Clear 6" Glass Square Vases 4 for $24 / $6 each

if you want to use less flowers run these down the center of the table

A single peony floats in a small square vase.

sarahalthea:  I agree. I think they are beautiful. I think you would also be wise to stick to something simple.

Dollar store vases with above ideas for flowers something low and simple.  Recently someone had a website for inexpensive silver mint julep cups as well.

The vases are where everything adds up.   There are a lot of great vases at the dollar tree (they have even more online than in stores), and at a dollar each you can’t beat the price.  I personally like any vase that just doesn’t go too high, as they can be distracting to guests who want to chat

Here are a few possibililties.  Crystal and silver finishes are both elegant and using one or three large flowers is easy.  I am thinking hydrangea or spider mums in something like this.  The silver vases are a bit pricey so I am going to buy inexpensive low glass ones and spray them with Kyrlon Looking Glass paint for a bit of sparkle.
