I couldn't seem to get a good picture of it with the flash on
I'm going to use submerged pink tulle (still with a floating candle on top) to tie the two options together. I didn't have any pink tulle on hand, so I just used the white I already had to make sure it would work. We'll still have three vases, so the center vase will have the tulle and the two side vases will have pink beads/pearls at the bottom and ribbon around the middle with a floating candle on top. That way, the beads/pearls that I'm adding to the tulle pomander centerpieces will be similar to the beads/pearls in the vase, and the same pink ribbon will be used in both centerpiece options. I'd already found the two (shorter) side vases we're using on Dollar Tree's website, and I happened to check back and find taller ones we could use for the middle one! I was originally planning on buying the taller ones from Wal-Mart, but we saved money this way, and they work just as well. We'll also be saving a lot of money using tulle rather than flowers.
I'm really excited to see how it all comes together. I'll hopefully be doing a full centerpiece mock-up soon, so I can make sure my vision turns out as well as I'm picturing it. I've also never seen this done before, so I'm glad it'll be totally original! The only thing I still need to figure out is where to buy the floating candles from. Do any of you have suggestions or recommendations? I've found 72 2" floating candles for $35.99 - Do you think I could find them cheaper?
Are you able to stick with your original plans? Or do you find them slowly transforming into something totally different?
