Hi Bees, I’ve been looking through thread after thread and have found several people who have cut wine bottles to make centerpieces, but I’m wondering what everyones opinion is on something like these
I am having my reception at the Jupiter civic center on the beach in January, It has a very rustic ocean feel to it. It is an open air building with all exposed wood and wood floors, I will be having 5 foot round tables. My colors are Ivory, Seafoam and a dark slate blue. I would want to use the clear bottles and ivory candles of different heights. One idea I have is adding silk floral branches in my colors that I found, one small stem of each color and possibly filling the bottle with water? or even leaving it emty with the flowers in it just to add some color. Or is this design far too cheesy and too much like the wax drip green wine bottle candle holders of the 70s. I’m not sure how many bottles to put on a round table, This doesnt seem to be a popular option but I think it could work really well with the rustic ocean feel I’m going for. And Possibly some accenting votive candles?

I really like it! The clear bottles are extra nice.
One thing that I would be mindful of, however, is whether or not your guests can see each other across the table. Centerpieces can have a bad side effect of discouraging conversation sometimes!

I like the idea for something outdoorsy- I must say though in the dark looking picture you posted it kind of makes me think of what vampires must decorate their tables with! I think as long as the colors are light and breezy it will look fan-freakin-tastic!

I love the look. My only concerns would be A) the open air building (is their any wind/breeze coming through that would blow them out? and B) Make sure your venue will allow you to have uncovered candles as a lot of venues are now requiring hurricanes over candles (no exposed flames).

I love the look I think its beautiufl. My concerns would be that the candles arent in a type of holder and are really exposed in the open air and that after they start to burn down they are going to drip down the sides of the bottle and possibly the table, because there isnt a whole lot to the rim to catch all of the melted wax. But if you can find a way to make it work I say go for it because it is really pretty!!!
