i like the first idea…the plate w/stones wouldn’t be beachy to me, but more “zen” feeling

my mom and i are making our own. and we’re putting one round wide about 1ft tall vase on the table, then we’re adding seeglass (which is really pretty frosted glass) we’re submerging a flower not sure which kind yet, then 2 or 3 floating candles on top.

 

you can make your own see glass from old dishes (you buy a cheap tumbler for like 30$ and we’re using purple/blue/clear glass!

I stole this from an old thread:

 

http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/diy-centerpiece-candles-nonfloral-budget-ideas

 

I hope the person that originally posted their idea doesn’t mind? But this is exactly what I thought of when you said rectangular vase in one idea, and river rocks in the other idea. What about combining? To me this doesn’t look too beachy it looks hip/elegant. But that’s just MHO.

Also that thread looks like it has some really good DIYs in it.

I googled these. They look similar to what you described and look really simple to make.

@rmw…are you planning on using silk flowers? I think it will be nice without water but live flowers may wilt during the reception…especially with candles.

are you against using some shells?  that would be more beachy, or some driftwood perhaps?

I like the floating candles, why no water?
