I love the look of tall centre pieces, particularly the Eiffel Tower vase (we got engaged at the Eiffel Tower!). I’d like to use faux floral pomanders but would need at least 12″ ones which I have found to be $20+ each. Any alternative suggestions? The vases are 24″ tall. I don’t have the budget for real flowers, sadly 🙁
Our reception is in a hotel, newly renovated, modern but simple. Big drum chandeliers. The theme is vintage glam and colours are black, white and blush with touches of silver and gold.

You can use grapevine balls as your base. You could even make your own if you have access to grapevine prunings. Just soak them in water till pliable then wrap around a gym ball of the appropriate size. After the vines are completeky dry, deflate the ball, remove it and start again.
You could also use polystyrene instead of styrofaom. It is generally 1/3 the price. Remember to use alow temp hot glue if you use glue at all.
