I think maybe putting those colored glass gem type thngs( I can’t think of the word) in the bottom, like alternatiing between your colors in each bowl, and a tealight would be pretty in them. Let me look for a pic…

Lemons or limes would be fun! There is a jello centerpiece post floating around that could be interesting, but you might want to try gel that’s intended for florals instead of jello that’s intended for eating. Have you purchased any fake flowers or filler? Could be fun to play around with, and you could have little colored pebbles or crystals at the bottom. Walk around Michael’s or Hobby Lobby and I bet you’ll find all kinds of inspiration!

Oh lemons and limes would be so awesome and colorful. I wouldn’t do anything scented because some guests have issues with scents. I had to do scentless candles for our wedding because I knew of 3 guests that get migraines/allergies to scents. Just an FYI πŸ™‚

Can you clarify the dimensions? Are they only 3 ” high?

If so I would suggest succulents:

Ha, mine doesn’t like lemons either while I LOVE the idea! Here are some fishbowl ideas, and you could always tweak the flowers to match your colors!

Can’t figure out how to delete the double pic; let’s just say that I extra like that one!

Dried lentils or split peas with a candle set in them.
