To try and save money we are filling half of the tables at the reception with flowers (pink tulips) and half with pillar candles. However, when I plunk a pillar candle into one of our vases it looks kind of sad. So I need to figure out some kind of vase filler to put into the bottom to make it look less sad. We have looked into glass gems and the like, but I am not the biggest fan of the look and it would be really hard to match the pink of the glass pieces to the pink in the tulips on the other tables. Does anyone have any other ideas of what we could use? We would ideally like to have something organic like plants or something natural in the bottom but can’t think of anything good. Our colors are pale pink, charcoal, and white, with hints of silver.

Some ideas I’ve toyed with: Rocks, Moss, Sand, Seashells
I LOVE this website http://www.save-on-crafts.com/vasgemmarsto.html (linked it right to vase fillers)
Update: I found frosted pink beach glass that is pale pink! It’s gorgeous and budget friendly! http://www.save-on-crafts.com/seaglass2.html

I am thinking small rocks or diamond confetti.

I’ve seen where you can wrap the vase with ribbon.. Sometimes several colors in a simple band.. some I’ve seen in a criss cross pattern.
I have seen one with curly willow in small pieces twisted around the candle. It would be inbetween the vase and the candle…
You could cover the candle with something (lace, ribbon.. something with a pop of color)
You could frost the glass vases and put a simple cuff around the vase (whether its with rhinestones, pearls, etc.)
You could get a hurricane vase, or a footed vase and put something like rocks or pebbles or crystals in the bottom.
You could “bling” the candle..
Just a couple I could think of right away.

OOh, I got it.. get some moss! You could put the candle in, and fill around it with moss… green & cool looking!

or you could pour sand in around the candle.. if you have white candles you could do dark sand (charcol color).
I’m planning to use floating candles and submerge long blades of grass under the candles on the head tables..

Hmm, I will look into the moss. Earlier my friend mentioned baby’s breath sprigs to me so I am going to test these out too. Thanks for the help bees!

I am using black marble looking rocks! They look awesome in a clear vase! Instead of black though, you could use whatever color your wedding colors are.
