Over the top?? I she joking?

Candles floating in a bowl is one of those simple, timeless classic centre pieces that a lot of people do because they are exactly that: Simple, tasteful and effective.

Goodness me, I don’t think she would know what ‘Over the Top’ was if it came up and pinched her bum. O.o

Show her THIS site:

Whilst drastically beautiful, I don’t think she’ll be baulking at your ‘candles in a bowl’ idea any more…

micheals– 40% and 50% coupons.!!!!!! i loved them. u can print off from website too.. when i first started my centerpiece buying i would go in buy one item take it to car and go right back in change cashiers.. i was able to do 10-15 trips into store in aday.. but they caught on and limited me so i would go between two locations and get it done that way/ very time consuming..its a good thing there was a micheals by kids school and on our way home

Are you for real? Tell your Future Mother-In-Law SHE is over the top.

 

Nice choice btw.. are you incorporating your wedding colours?

@asianyoushi: On that larger candle, is the ribbon on the candle itself? You may want to rethink that and place the ribbon on the vase. It looks like a potential fire hazard to me done that way. Better be safe than sorry.

Im doing the same idea as asianyoushi:
(imagine the tall cylinder with a white orchid and floating candle inside)

have you done a ‘test run’ of the centerpieces?  I don’t think this is too much, but you can show her that it would be too much by having a test run, and most of these objects are inexpensive.
