So here’s our dilemna…we are having a large wedding…over 250 people. The location we’re having our reception at does not allow us to use candles and the LED pillar candles are too expensive for having that many centerpieces (we’re estimating needing about 33). I have the round, cylindrical glass vases but I am not sure how to decorate them or what to put in them. The wedding is only 1 month away and I need some ideas! Any suggestions? I am a visual person so if you could post pics of the ideas as well, that would be great!!! Thanks in advance!

Tell us more about your wedding: colors, theme, budget for centerpieces. Do you want floral, non-floral?

flower petals, moss and twigs, coffee beans, water & lily pads, large potpori (check out target, they have these really cool stick ball like things), silver/gold/your color christmas bulbs.. I’ll think of more!

The colors we’re using are navy, green apple green, white and silver. The theme is Eat, Drink & Be Married and we’re trying to keep the cost as low as we can

You could take inspiration from this pic:
Wrap the inside of some of your vases with a tropical leaf, wrap the outside of others with navy ribbon.
Top them with spider mums as in the back left vase in the pic. They are huge and will cover the whole vase . They are also not that expensive. You can use some green and some white.
If you have any budget left, you could either get some votive holders and insert a battery operated tealight, or buy some tiny vases from Luna Bazaar and use a complimentary colored flower.

I’ve seen the tall cylinder vases filled with green apples and tied with a ribbon in an accent colour and it looks really cute! Would go with your “eat, drink and be married” theme too.

What about submerged silk flowers. You could do it with or without a lit base.

I’ve seen glass vases filled with limes, lemons, oranges…some cut so that the sectioned insides are facing outward. Pretty and spunky, especially for some bright colors in the middle of winter.
