VictorianChick :  There is a ton of really cool things on that goodwill site, you can also look through different sections like China and glassware. These are all going for around $10 plus s&h, the last lot might be a little more.

VictorianChick :  I just gave you my pic as an idea, I know you don’t like roses.  I used wrapping paper to cover the books.  I splurged on a couple of rolls of Rifle & Co paper and then mixed in the solids.  Books from goodwill were a dollar each.  I used my larger tea cups/vases in the center then the smaller ones on the tables.  I had cups from my grandmother’s china, my mother in law, and then my best friend loaned me some from her family sets.   I was amazed at how many I could find in thrift stores, also.

VictorianChick :  yeah, I actually like her dishes and such. My younger cousin, who just eloped, bought them for herself and they’re pretty sturdy.

VictorianChick :  on floral foam

Edit: 1 hydrangea might not be hard to pull off in those. You’d want to secure the foam in there somehow though. At least make it a tight fit in the bowl.

VictorianChick :  Those are fairly small in person, you may want to visit a store if possible and see them for yourself. Floral foam or that oasis foam would work nicely though!

VictorianChick :  I love those blue dishes!  Our tablecloths were provided by the venue.  As for the floral foam, use the clear floral tape across the top to keep the foam secure.  You can’t see it once the flowers are in.

VictorianChick :  A hydrangea in each of those would be fantastic. And would act as an anchor for a few other flowers per bowl. 

Just also wanted to add that a lot of people have trouble with hydrangeas because they don’t understand the flower. When exposed to air, the hydrangeas will start to eat away at themselves from the cut part of their stem. You need to cut it on an angle and then immediately place it in water. Immediately!! They can last a very, very long time if properly cared for 🙂
