We think we pretty much have ideas for centerpieces decided on. Since there will be close to 30 round tables, so I thought 2 alternating centerpieces (of different heights) would be more interesting.
For the first, shorter, centerpiece we're using 3 cyllinder vases. 2 of the vases will be 7.5" tall and will look like this:
The other vase on those tables will be 10.5" and the same cyllinder shape. They're from Wal-Mart and are $1.97 each, but I can't find them on their website.
All 3 vases will have submerged flowers (pink orchids most likely) with a white floating candle on top. They'll be surrounded by votives and it will all - hopefully - be sitting on DIY damask table squares!
All put together it will look something like this:
(Minus the flowers around the base and add the damask table square)
The centerpieces for the opposite tables will be topiaries with votives surrounding them on a damask table square.
We'll be using terracotta pots and probably artificial flowers. They're a couple dollars at Wal-Mart, but I can't find them on their website either. We'll be painting them black, but they'll look similar to these:
I think the difference in height will add a lot to the room! What do you think?
Will you/did you use alternating centerpieces or stick to just one?
