    I think they’ll look great once they’re off the snowman tablecloth. 🙂

    They look great! Love Dollar Tree!!

    I’m also using the vases from the dollar tree (I bought manzanita branches) and will be doing a similar thing with the candlesticks. I’m only going to have one vase per table, alternating between low vases with balls of baby’s breath and larger vases with manzanita branches and hanging green amarantus and crystals. I also bought over 100 glass votives off craigslist for $20 that I’m going to paint gold and have a collection of them on each table with a royal blue table runner. I was actually thinking about going to Dollar Tree tonight to see if they have this one picture frame I saw on their website was in stock (I need table number holders). I think it is crazy to get glass vases anywhere else! I don’t know how they sell them so cheap or why they are so expensive at our stores. Definitely saves a ton of money and looks great too!

    I think, correct me if I’m wrong OP, but the glueing would be the candle holders.  She has candle stick holders and pillar vases sitting on top.  Those are two separate pieces that would need glued.. 

     

    Edit* you posted while I was typing 🙂

    I think they are very pretty; my only thing is the green part on the flower. Maybe spray paint white? I don’t know; that’s the only thing that makes it look “cheap” to me.

    lovely job! The only advice I’d give, is be sure you have lots of ppl help set all of this up, when lots of glass and water is involved it can get heavy and time-consuming!

    @Artificial-Sweetener:  I agree. They look great and upscale except for the green plastic on the fake flower. I would paint that white somehow, cover it in glue and white glitter, glue a piece of white satin over it, or something. Other than that, they look really great!

    I think they’re pretty great, but I’m not sure why you aren’t putting fresh flowers in the vases of water. IMO, that’s the only thing that really looks “cheap,”, and it wouldn’t cost much at all to get a few blooms from the grocery store to put in there instead. I bet it wouldn’t cost $20 total, and it would make all the difference in the world.

    Everything else, though, I think you should leave the same.

    @Sunnybrook:  I don’t know. I think the snowmen bring the whole piece together. 😉

    @HisNightOwl2014:  They’re lovely! It’s amazing what a mirror and some reflective pieces will do, isn’t it? Nice work!
