Trying to cut expenses, so I’m trying to use what I have to decorate the tables with, but I’d start over if this idea looks silly. It’s a round vase filled w/ red rose petals, sitting on that is a upside down wine glass filled w/ red rose petals, on top of that is 1/2 a red rose pomander. I thought about getting some hanging crystal to hang from the pomander and some diamond confetti to sprinkle around the top of the round vase to spark it up. Does this look ok or not…be honest, you won’t hurt my feelings (I’m tough) Thanks

Honestly, I think there’s a way to beef it up so it’s still in your budget, but looks more expensive. 😉 If you are looking for inexpensive centerpieces maybe you could do something a la Mrs. Lemon? http://www.weddingbee.com/2007/07/24/diy-details-centerpieces/ I think $25 dollars a centerpiece was a great deal!
Here’s a list of some other centerpieces ideas from some other bees: http://wiki.weddingbee.com/Centerpiece

I really like that! If you wanted to mix it up a bit, you could maybe try putting something else (different petals?) in the wine glass, but I think this is cool!

I think it looks great! I love the use of the wine glass. I definitely think that adding hanging crystals would beef it up to make it look more expensive. Also, I think you should add candles/votives around it – they could help make the crystal shine!

i like it, but to be 100% honest… i’m not 100% loving the wine glass.(however it is creative so i give ya mad props for that!! ) Could you use a cylindrical vase or plain juice glass instead and flip it over?? i think it may work..and maybe be more stable too.
i love everything else though, incorporating the petals on the “middle” tier is a great idea.

Here’s some inexpensive vases, and I agree, they might be more stable than the wine glasses. 🙂 http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/categories/departments/decoration/10769/

yeah the wine glass isn’t doing it for me. I would look into the cylinder vases that others mentioned. the flowers look nice though. add some tealight candles around the centerpiece if you can.

I agree with the others about the wine glass. Just order $1 from Dollar Tree and have them shipped to a store near you, to replace the wine glass part. It shouldn’t cost you too much!

I would be afraid that would get knocked over or blown over outside. A cylinder vase might be more stable instead of a wine glass.
