I like them, but I dont like the candles on top.  There are too thick or something… Or maybe too white… hmm I dont know what it is, but my eyes are drawn away from the pretty flowers and directly to the candles.  Besides that I think they look really nice and besides stems I can’t really tell the flowers are fake.

Those are pretty similar to what I’m doing, although I’m using violet hyacinth, will have the gems in the bottom of the vase with a submergible LED light (which is why I am using the mirror, lighting is really important to me), and then a single floating candle on top that is just about the width of the vase.

My flowers didn’t bleed, but good news on yours!! I agree with others that a single larger candle might look better if you choose to keep it. I really think it depends on the lighting in the rest of the venue if you want to use them or not. If you’ll have house lights down low, I think you need some sort of light on the centerpiece to make them visible.

Mine came out to about $28/table all in, including gallons of distilled water (although I’m not sure I’m going to buy that – it looked fine after 8 hours with regular water to me, maybe I’m just not as picky).

Where did you get your vases? I went through Glass Supply Depot in case someone else is reading this and have been very impressed. They are quality Libbey glass vases that should be pretty easy to resell, not cheapie vases. The customer service was awesome too. My flowers & lights were from efavormart, stones mirrors & candles were from save-on-crafts.com. Buying the stones from online was a mistake, should have done a bulk order from Dollar Tree and picked up in store. They are just way too expensive to ship.

Nice job 🙂

Actually I love them because I couldnt tell that they were fake until you said something. 

*takes notes* if I decide to use artificial flowers for submerged projects soak them first….lol

Very nice! I would do one larger floating candle on top, instead of the smaller ones.

Oh and you should try sequins….some of them float but some of them sink…they are beautiful in submerged projects

I like them but I agree with the other posters that there is something about the white candles that I’m not a fan off. Maybe you need another colour candle or skinnier white ones.

@S2013:  Go on Amazon!! I bought 24 sets of 3 for something like $250 after shipping, maybe the same seller still has them available.
