You might have to use some sort of floral gel to do that. Even if you did it days in advance, you’d have to move them to take them to the venue :(.

Did you rinse the sand before putting it in the bowl?

@Winter2013: I was going to say this too. I had to clean the sand every time I reset my fish tank.

You need to rinse the sand some – you can fill it in a bowl, rub your hand threw it, then dump out the water. Repeat a few times.

It will settle, but it takes some time. I know when we setup our saltwater fish tank, it took a few days for the sand to settle.

You can also put a coffee filter in a sieve and run water through it. You will likely have to do this more than once to clean the dirt off the sand.

Or you can do it by putting all the sand in a big bin and rinse, rinse, empy/fill…repeat, then you get it all done at once or go with out the floating candle and not use any water in the bowls, I have seen several centerpieces like this and seems a lot easier to do, and they still look lovely.

Or switch to glass beads or river rock in the bottom of the vase.
