I did a trial run for my centerpieces this weekend. I did a few different setups; what’s the bees favorite way?
This is a close up of the flower vases (would be w/o beads) (also I told bionic james i’d post this pic to show the flowers really do stay ‘sunk’ all on there own!)
set up with vases/votives
set up with scattered beads
What do you guys think? We’re having white tableclothes with aqua colored overlays (like the color of the runner), and I think I’ll also put a orchid bud in each napkin. Also, each place setting will have our favors (pink/aqua personalized M&Ms) wrapped in ivory tulle circles tied with aqua ribbons.

That should be lovely. Are you doing beads around all of the vases or have you not decided yet?

VERY BEAUTIFUL!!! I’m doing something similar with the submerged flowers so I’m a little partial 😉 Definitely eye catching and LOVE the colors!
I don’t know if I’m completely in love with the scattered beads (def like them but don’t know about love) but I do think you need something more than the vases… have you tried a 12×12 square mirror maybe? Would be a beautiful reflection esp with the candle light!

Love the scattered beads… Is it diamond confetti?

stargal – it’s actually not a table runner, I wanted something the same color as my bridesmaid/flowergirl dress to drag around when I was picking stuff out, so I went to Joann’s fabric & just bought a yard of fabric. That’s all that is. I’m going to rent my tablecloths though.

Ms. caniche – it’s actually just the clear pebbles you see at almost every store in the vase section (with flat bottom & rounded top). If I go with the beads, I was thinking about ordering some diamond confetti…just couldn’t find a bag locally to see what it looked like in person

Beautiful. I love that color of orchids. I like the example with the beads the best. I’m not sure why either because I’m not usually wild over sprinkling things. However it seems to really pop with the candles and the fushia orchids and aqua runner.
