I did something similair. I got vases for a $1 a piece at Walmart and use stones at the bottom with a floating candle at the top. This was for half the tables. The other half had these metal planters boxes (smaller) with grass (wheat grass works really well since the color is so vibrant). I have smaller votives around both these centerpieces with sand and canles in them. It looked great.

What about something like this?

You can put two on each table..these are longer than what you mentioned but I think all the candles with the rocks and floating ones will give it’s a romantic feel for your garden wedding 😀

I’ve always loved baby’s breath for cheap and rustic centerpieces. When I was planning, I found the most amazing picture of baby’s breath centerpieces on a rustic wood table. It was in a magazine, and I couldn’t find it with a quick google search, but here’s another picture I came across that I really love. Just as an alternative to floating a candle/flower in the vases.

You could have a cut piece of wood underneath the vase or a square cut piece of burlap.. for cheap vases buy ones that don’t match at the thrift store.. Use mason jars for a rustic look.

Also with the burlap (since your tables are long) you could have it as a table runner.

I don’t like the mirrors either!! 🙂

i found this url through another bee, but their plumeria blooms are .08 cents each! shipping is a pain (about 45.00 right now, but it’ll prolly be different by ur wedding date) anyway, i’m having 1000.00 blooms flown over and now i’m just brainstorming on how to use them. here’s the link…

I chose to use lime fruit slices, since I used this more as an accent color.  Buying the fruit in bulk at Costco, Winco, or Walmart was helpful in saving money, and it also creates a unique, bold look for your wedding!  Here is a How-To guide on making these centerpieces, and a picture of my wedding centerpiece!

Good luck!
