We decided to buy heavy paper with really beautiful designs that match our colors.  I cut them, taped them, and they’re acting as lanterns for the tables.  We’re also doing these – http://diy.weddingbee.com/topic/mrs-green-teas-diy-thread-led-tealight-cover

All of candles will be flameless, both to save on deposit, and because we actually found them at Wal-Mart for cheaper than votive holders with candles.  We’ll probably place all of the lanterns on a piece of square aluminum to provide a little bit of relflection/contrast, but definitely not mirrors (I just don’t like the look).

If you’d like, I can send you a picture of the mock-up I did.

I’ve seen some really inexpensive centerpieces with a floating candle in a glass vase or bowl with tea lights and/or petals sprinkled around.

Have you thought about vases with colored paper wrapped around them on the inside, you could do a different shade of purple in each one and then fill the vase with several black and white feathers, it would look very pretty and you can get vases from the dollar tree for $1 and feathers from hobby lobby or a craft store for under $2 a piece!

@sarafoxy0328:  I would love to see your paper that you used to make your lanterns.  I have been looking for really thick patterned paper or something to go under my centerpieces.
