pillar candles.  maybe scatter a few flowers around the bowl or cut the tops off of lillies and weight them in the bottom…

Perhaps you could add floating flowers in with the candles, or find inexpensive bowls of different shapes, so they are not all round.  I’ve also seen floating candle centerpieces where a few drops of food coloring were added to the water – if you can work this in with your color scheme, it might look quite nice.  Good luck!

Definitely flowers, I love when you see fresh flowers in floating arrangements! or those clear pebble-things for the bottom to give it some depth and color!

i like the food coloring idea. you can also get greenery and put them in the vase like this… with or without the flowers:

Some possibilities:

  • Mirrors under the bowls to reflect the light/make it look brighter
  • Diamond confetti/acrylic diamonds inside the bowl, and/or in a circle around the bowl

  • Submersible Floralytes
  • Submerged flowers or flower petals.  Having the flowers underwater makes them look much larger, so you can get away with perhaps one stem, perhaps from a grocery store to keep down the costs, per bowl–and the candle holds them down.
  • Petals scattered around the bowl

Save-On-Crafts has pretty much all of this stuff.

You’re getting married in November! Hmm what about berries in the bottom of the bowl? I’m not sure what your colours are… I think it’s a nice Fall alternative to petals!

Luckyyyy… your centerpieces are included!! 🙂
