I don’t have pics, but hurricane candle holders sound like just the thing for you. Most are 11"-12" tall, so you candle has no real chance of catching anything on fire. I’m using them, and putting glass beads/rock in the bottom to hold the candle steady.

Here is a picture of something that I really liked and used for inspiration-hope it helps!

We’re doing something similar like Miss Snowflake but one large hurricane with a large flower(s) (most likely carnations or hydrangeas) submereged in the water with a floating candle ontop.  There will be crushed shells on the bottom as well as votives around the platform.

rustic? Chique? you could do a metal cutout thing around the candles and get some nice patterns on the tables too. Or buy really cool looking candles and put them in clean vases i googled unique candles and found these, i’m sure you could find some awesome looking ones!

Here are some pics of my centerpieces. . . . the vases are from dollar tree and the votives inside(their fake) are from Christmas tree shops and the glass marbles are from Michaels. I didnt want the floating candles or mirror either. . . .

Hope they helped. . if you like them message me and i can give you the low-down on how to make them. . they are fairly easy

I love the look of wrapped hurricanes. I thought it might be cute to do with old love letters or poems special to the couple. Or different words for love or something.

dereksbride2be I have been experiencing the same exact thing!! I thought I had found the perfect centerpiece idea but the company that made the bowls went out of business!! I saw something yesterday where they filled a vase with leaves (i’m also having a fall-themed wedding) which I thought was really unique. I’m thinking about doing this and surrounding the vase with votives. However, after reading all of these posts I’m completely unravelled again!!

We are having candle centerpieces as well. We are thinking one footed hurricane vase with a big pillar inside it. I’m trying to decide what to put on the bottom to keep it secure. Its in the fall so sand is out, we thought maybe soil?

We also were thinking of putting the vase on a mirror but then I saw some wood things that could be nice. Once we are sure I’ll post pictures of a mockup
