As soon as I saw the title of your post I immediately thought of this book club luncheon/event I went to a few years ago, I loved the hydrangea centerpieces they had with the books underneath! Not sure what your style/budget would be for the teapots but Amazon (or even eBay) has lots of options like:

https://www.amazon.com/Porcelain-Butterfly-Dragonfly-Teapot-Trimmed/dp/B000KSXUUE/ref=sr_1_21?ie=UTF8&qid=1470434218&sr=8-21&keywords=ceramic+tea+pot

https://www.amazon.com/Fox-Run-Earthenware-Teapot-White/dp/B003D2KCQ4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1470434218&sr=8-3&keywords=ceramic+tea+pot 

Also, don’t limit your book search to your local area! Search your favorite books on Amazon and look at the other sellers/used section for other options, as well as used book sites like BetterWorldBooks. Goodwill also has an online site (similar to eBay) called http://www.shopgoodwill.com, you should be able to find inexpensive books ther as well.

This looks like a fairly easy DIY. Dollar Tree vases and metallic paint at the bottom for a decidedly vintage feel.

When I fist glanced at your title, I read “hairpiece” instead of “centerpieces” and I thought that hydrangeas on your head would be a little too large…. 😀

I collected mismatched teacups and set those on books covered with paper for height.  Antique stores have stray cups that are inexpensive and then I borrowed from family and friends.  My best friend’s wedding china was even used, which was special.

Oh, keep scanning eBay…although some are outrageous in price, I found a great mismatched set of 6 for next to nothing because they just wanted them gone.  I bought my books at goodwill and covered them with Rifle & Co wrapping paper.  The paper was a splurge but the books were cheap.

Finally found a pic of mine!  No hydrangeas, I had them in my bouquet but they were out of season so my centerpieces were roses, succulents, and carnations.  And I did gold glitter around the top of my votive holders.  I know you said you didn’t like roses, but this gives you an idea…

VictorianChick :  How many centerpieces do you need and how much would you like to spend?

These are what we used. £1.00 glass candy storage jars, minus the lid. They were from hobby craft (uk) but I’m sure you could find similar. Ours were small, but with large flowers like hydrangeas the arrangement would still be quite sizeable.

We used milk glass compotes. They’re easy to find online at places like eBay and in antique stores. I don’t know if this is kind of the look you wanted but I was really happy with how it turned out. Here’s a picture.
