Something like those. You can also make your own I think, pretty easily at home, but I think they’re rather cheap. As you fill up the vase with the gel balls, put the pieces of whatever you want to float in amongst the beads. We did this at my old job and I had lotsa fun playing with the little balls ha!
I could be wrong, perhaps someone has an easier solution for the gel stuff inside. The rest should be pretty straightforward!
In this case it looks like they just filled the vases with the jelly material and then placed a small tealight candle on top. I’m not sure what the blue peices are, but while the gel is setting, you can suspend pretty much whatever you want in it as long as it’s not too heavy.
I saw a long time ago a centerpiece that looked similar to that where the girl just put saran wrap in the jar! It looked pretty cool and could have the same effect. I’m not sure about the blue pieces though. Maybe pieces of paper?? I would maybe suggest putting some kind of lighting underneath the vase though. So that when your reception room is dark you can still see the details 🙂
lisajean622: those blue peices look like they are suspended in water, but they arent. They are likely water pearls. Pretty much, they are like giant tapioca beads (those are clear but they come in all colors) that disappear in water. So if you layer the beads with the blue things (is that sea glass?) or anythign else…lemon slices, flowers, etc), then pour in the water, it looks like they are freely suspended. check out the video if you are confused how they work. most flower supply companies carry them.
