I’ve made these centerpieces but I cant seem to find gel to fill it. I dont want to use water because I want my guests to be able to take them home. Does anybody have any idea of what kinda of gel I could use. I tried “quick water” but it was too bubbly because I couldnt mix it because of the flowers inside. I also want to put a floating candle on top. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think that if you put gel in there you wouldn’t be able to see the flowers as well. I would maybe put some gel in the bottom of the vase and then fill it with water. Guests could dump out the water before traveling home with it.

Why can’t you mix the gel and then insert the flowers? I don’t see why the flowers have to be in there while you’re mixing.

I can only think on water pearls, but I think you wouln’t be able to see the flowers with these ones either.

Sorry, I have no ideas. We used water and people had no problem taking them home.

To be honest, if I was one of your guest I would rather have them filled with water, cause you can easily throw it away, gel is more complicated.

I think that you are making this harder than it needs to be. You can do water and people could dump it out and easily take them home. This just happened at my friends wedding. Otherwise could you use the quick water and mix it up and then insert the flowers after so its mixed and not as bubbly.?

We also had water in our vases. The guests did not need to pour out water (b/c they were not filled to the top).

I’ve never heard of having guests take home the centerpieces. Ohhh the things that WeddingBee has taught me!!
