I’d love to help but I’m at work and the pic doesn’t show. Can you post a link to what you are talking about?

Hit up Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel or Pier 1 and search for ball alternatives to use.  I hope they show up!  Good luck!

I recommend going to Michael’s or JoAnn’s.  They should have some kind of ball similar to your centerpieces.  OR I know its not the same, but could you use paper lanterns of different sizes?  I got some at world market so I know they have some for sure.

So what you are saying is that if the globes don’t arrive, you have to find a replacement or you won’t be able to use your candles.

Option A: find a substitute for the globe

the challenge is finding something that will fit your candleholder-take one with you- search the above mnetioned stores or even dollar stores, Joannes or Michaels

Option B: go out and buy some flameless candles

Bed Bath and Beyond carries these:

Option C: find new candleholders

Option D: ditch the candleholders and do something like vases from the dollar store with simple flowers

If you get vases from the dollar store could you just put a votive candle in them?  Or they have those colored glass beads there and you could put a fake/electric tea light in the vase with colored beads?

or an single flower top (fake) on the beads.  You could get a short square vase.

Darn, I wish I could see your pic.

If it is a candleholder in the traditional sense, you could get some floral foam at the dollar store, soak it, cut small pieces to stuff in where the candle would go, the just use one flower like a gerbera daisy or a hydrangea  cut real short and inserted into the foam.

Surround with your other candles.

@OneLove04210: if you decide to use vases and flowers, the easiest arrangements to do is to use either a casual mix that looks like flowers from your garden, or just use one type of flower. Hydrangeas are out now- one hydrangea head is huge and may be all you need,

@OneLove04210: sorry, because I couldn’t see the pic at work, I totally misunderstood your problem.

The globes you referred to are the string balls, correct? If that is what is missing, you could go to Michael’s, other crafts stores, Pier 1,  any Dollar store, a garden store etc and find a grapevine ball to use as a replacement.

When you have time, let us know what you decided to do.
