I had silver floating candles that were shaped like flowers. I bought them at Michael’s and they weren’t too pricey. They looked romantic and sweet. I set the bowls on mirrors and sprinkled fake flowers petals around the centerpiece to tie it all together.

I got cheap glass vases at ACMoore on sale for $5 each then we decided we wanted really tall ones so we got semi cheap ones at Michaels with 40% off coupons… it was a lot of trips but we saved a ton of money!

I used cylinder vases from Dollar Tree to put the table numbers around.  Then, we just added ribbon around each vase to add a bit of color to them. 

Then, we had our florist put together centerpieces containing one single rose.  I believe they were about $30-35 each. We supplied the cracked ice for the vases and rented the chargers for $1 each from our venue.  After our big day, we sold the vases and cracked ice afterwards to recoup some of the costs.

The dollar store sells pretty nice bowls/vases that you can use.  They also have the stones that you can put in the bottom of each bowl.  If you can’t get your florist to give you a really good deal JUST ON flowers to float in the bowls that you create, you can always go to your local grocery store that has a flower section and ask them to order the flowers you want for you… only for the centerpieces.  Also check Goodwill stores and Salvation Army stores – you would be amazed at the amount of glassware/vases/bowls etc that they have really really cheap.

These centerpieces (minus the flowers) cost about $5 ish each. We got mudpans from lowes and just added water, flowers, and candles… viola!
