I would do something simple and stay away from using ribbon around the rim of the vase.

If your budget will include some flowers, you could do these yourselves. Just a few flowers with some curly willow twigs in the water.

or,  tropical leaves wrapped around the inside of the vase with an LED candle inside the vase.

 Do the vases you will be using have the fluted rim? Arranging the flowers like this helps to hide the rim. You can do them the night before but don’t fill them too full of water- easier to transport that way. Have someone top up the water at the site.

 You don’t have to use gerberas as they can be more expensive. Any larger daisy style or mum flower would work. They prettty much arrange themselves. The twigs in the water also help to hold the flowers in place.

For the one with the leaves, you just wrap the leaves around the inside of the bowl, fill it with water and add the floating candle.

For something completely different, you could get little plants in tiny pots and place the glass vase upside down over the plant. Perhaps use a slice of a tree branch as a base.

I’m on a roll!

Take a pot of flowering spring bulbs and repot them into the clear glass vase. We can get these at the little corner grocery stores here for $3-$4 in the spring. I love the look of white tulips with the soil and roots showing through the glass. Or use smaller bulbs like crocus or grape hyacinth.

What? You aren’t going to hide a leprechaun amongst the greenery?

Just kidding! I prefer simple and elegant.
