I would check out dollar stores and stores like Marshals if renting isn’t an option.

That’s what we did for centerpieces, but we had some raised up on cupcake stands, and some directly on the tables. This is a picture of the trial….we were refinishing floors so had no place to practice. 🙂

I should add that they were inexpensive cardboard ones, and they worked great. Just added a ribbon trim to the edge to dress them up a little.

this may be a little off topic, but how will you let people know that those are favors for them to take? If I saw such a  beautiful arrangement I might assume that it was part of the decor and not assume that it was a favor for the guests.

You could make elevated stands the same way that other are making cakestands. Buy plates, small trays or bar trays  and goblets at the goodwill and use epoxy to glue them together. You can also use small bowls if you find them.

@julies1949: I just tried out the epoxy thing with a plate and a candleholder I bought for about a buck each at Value Village, and it looks great. I would definitely recommend it. Just make sure you know what kind of epoxy to use! I thought the one I had dried clear, but it dried white–luckily I was testing it with a white plate, but the glass base has some smudges on it.
