How about something like this?  ETA if you notice, there are no flowers at all, just great lighting and candles… the wine glasses (taller holders) were from dollar tree and they had floating candles and mardi gras beads… colored liquid would also be awesome in them…

hmm, i too gave up flower centerpieces for budget, here’s some ideas:

1. candles of varied sizes and heights.  maybe a couple of large holders with pillars and scattered tea lights or votives around.  lanterns are nice if you can find a deal.

2. fill glass vases/bottles with whole spices, berries, coffee beans, etc.  star anise is really beautiful.

3. use a bold colored or patterned table runner to keep things from looking sparce.

4. don’t use anything too big or tall, a lot of people forget this but the table is for eating and conversing at not just looking fancy 😉

5. someone on these boards did a tutorial for a cupcake holder made out of an antique taper candle holder and a pretty plate, just glue together!  cheap and awesome looking.

now that i’m reading over this these are pretty ‘traditional’, but hopefully they help you somehow.  good luck!

We using non-floral centerpieces! We’re filling lily bowls (got them on ebay super super cheap!) with sand and rocks then water and floating 3 candles inside. I did a demo here at home the other day and they look awesome! I also saw pictures from a wedding where they filled regular drinking glasses (of various sizes) with water and floating candles- so chic and beautiful!
