 we are doing big glass bowls with coffee beans in the bottom and 3-5 green apples piled on top. I may tuck a single white flower in with the apples.

I have a picture if you’re interested but it’s basically really tall, narrow cylindrical vases filled with water and submerged white orchids in there with a lot of green, contemporary looking filler. It is placed on top of a bed of really small gravel..

Let me know if you’re interested and I can e-mail you that picture!

What about a brown lantern on top of a bed of moss?

The coffee beans are a good idea, I have seen that before and it looks good. What about moss balls or wicker balls? I guess that’s what they’re called, but I see them at craft stores all the time. I think if you’re trying to keep costs down by not having floral centerpieces, fruit would definately be the way to go.

The one thing we did that really cut down the flower bill was half the centerpieces will be candles.  I bought green charger plates from Potter Barn at their christmas sale and will be putting 3 candles on the plate. 

We are still having flower centerpieces on the other tables, but I was really suprised at how much  this cut the cost.  Also talk to your florist about costs.  Ours was really great at showing us some low cost flowers.  I have an appointment to see the mock up on Thursday. I hope they look as good as they do in my head!!
