@AlwaysSunny:  Love this idea

OP, if you do the submerged twigs/floating candles, you could set the vases on round wood slices and edge the slices with any left over moss.

You could do a version of a terrarium. These could be done a week or so ahead.

Pebbles in the bottom, some moss and a few tiny inexpensive plants like ferns.

Surround with some candles.

Here’s a bunch of pictures that might give some ideas. If I were you, and since I’ve  seen you struggle so much with these, have you considered spary painting the branches and sticking with your original but modified plan? Paint the branches white, use floralytes inside,wrap the bottom of the vases with sheet moss…keep it simple.

Anyway,some of these are pretty simple, but picture using your colors, or go on a hike somewhere and gather some more natural elements.

wrap the vases in paper with a design or a fabric that ties in and use light inside.

even the one with ornaments…gather a bunch of pinecones,spray paint them or leave them natural and add moss to the bottoms (outside).

I like the moss and fairy lights idea!  Very cute!  My only worry would be hiding power cable for them on the centre of the table.  Unless you can find battery operated fairy lights…?


Also think the submerged twigs and floating candles idea.  Simple yet very pretty.  A great idea, if you venue allows candles (which I know they don’t all)

Led lights with stones and moss? Or even twigs with water and flowers?

@Sparkidoodle:  I have a few sets of battery-operated fairy lights (about 2m long?) and running on 2 or 3 AA batteries. Mine are clear, but you can get coloured ones too. I normally get mine from K Mart around christmas for $5 a set?
