What about sinking 1 real or fake flower in the vase and floating a candle on top? I know its not super inventive but its pretty cost effective and the reason it is popular is because its really pretty.

I didn’t have a seated reception.  Mine was more of a cocktail hour feel.  For my mid- September wedding, we did have fresh flowers.  But for a more personal touch – I am nuts about holiday wrapped candy.  I don’t know why but I just love it!  I picked up several glass bowls at the dollar store.  I put an assortment of the fall (halloween) wrapped candies (reese’s cups, hershey’s miniatures, hersheys kisses) in the bowls.  Since they were all made by the same parent company (hersheys) all the wrappers were the same hues.  THere was gold, brown, orange and red.  I thought it was a fun touch!  Maybe not a centerpiece but it could add to your decor!

water (food colouring?) and floating candle?

 

When I organized a banquet and was on a budget we did these (attached) super cheap!

Oh, and I’m having a fall wedding next year. Haven’t quite figured out my centrepieces but I am thinking all different “fall” things, like acorns, pinecones, apples, mini pumpkins/squashes. You could fill your glass containers with them.

Also attached another idea, because you said you had votives.

Place a candle in the vase. Surround it with nuts, pomegranates(or apples) and add some cinnamon sticks. Another alternative would be to surround the candle with cranberries,

I don’t know where you live so hard to know what grows in your part of the country.

Look around your friend’s, family’s and neighbours yards and see what bushes or shrubs have berries.

Maybe the city parks staff might even let you have some prunings for nothing. It can’t hurt to ask.

There is a picture of a centerpiece with berried branches in your other post.

i would use branches/twigs from whatever you can find to cut down.  any tree will work, most large shrubs would work.  cut them with about 2 weeks to go and let the leaves dry.  they are easier to take off when dry.  just arrange 3 or so to a tall vase, maybe some vase filler of acorns or any fall item.  most dollar stores use to carry bags of fake fall leaves, i also noticed that michaels had some cheap too.  i used those for a fall wedding several years ago as table scatter.  because they are cheap, i coated them in white elmers glue and placed them in like muffin tins to dry realistically.  had some people comment on the leaves, not realizing they were fake.  good luck
