    If you buy the lights you could always dismantle them and put the solar/light portion into a jar. There was a post somebody did this with mason jars. I was going to do it, but our centerpiece idea changed. I’m sure you could translate it to other types of vases and jars easily!

    By The Way for some reason I absolutely love that you said “Go forth and be crafty.” I’m going to have to start using that…

    I think candles are much more romantic and prettier and effectively do the same job. You can get packets of Pillar candles from the $2 shope and for holders, you could have them inside vases or perhaps have a glazier cut you a bunch of Mirror peices to place them on for cheap. You could also do a bunch of tealight candles down the centre of the tables alongside your centrepeices – I bought 80 frosted glass tealight holders for $40 and they look beautiful when they glow. I really love lots of candles at weddings, they really make the room feel warm, inviting and just beautiful.

    I personally don’t like it.  I don’t think it has a soft romantic glow.  I’d go with candles.  Get some tealights/pillar candles and go at it.  They’re not too expensive.  If you have IKEA near you check out candle holders there.  You can get reversible stick candle/tea light candle holders for like $0.50 each.  Depending on how many tables you’d need it may not be too expensive 🙂

    I think that it’s the beginning of a great idea? Love the lights ideas but I think you need to play with it some more and come up with some more mock-ups. I definitely see inspired potential. <3

    P.S. LOVE the poll options! All. Of. Them. I lol’d…at work…when I’m not even supposed to be on the internet…
