Wedding Centerpieces

My cute little sister in law is getting married next month and I have been helping out with different things here and there.  She had seen a picture of something similar to this centerpiece and wondered if/how we could do it so I said I would work on it. This is what I came up with that went with her colors. We both love it but think that it is a little more than we wanted to pay for centerpieces. Now off to do Bridal shower invitations!

* The vase has colored glass gems in the bottom, a silk rose and what looks like water is called Craft Water and that is  where this project gets expensive!

Did you try going to a "dollar" store? We have Dollar Tree, Dollar General and others in our area.

I purchased glass "votives" and beads at DT. I put the beads in the votives and then placed a tealight candle in the middle (on top).

You can get really crafty at these stores and save a bundle! The only thing is that you want to make sure you don't LOOK cheap, just spend CHEAPLY!

Is it just rocks or marbles, water, and the flower in a vase? I agree, go to the dollar tree. They look really nice. :)

I have been helping out my "almost niece" with things for her wedding etc. too. She has found a lot of wonderful things on Etsy. She then sends me a link and says "Aunt Kristie what do you think of this?" which means, can you make this cheaper. LOL I've been having a ball!
Have fun!

Instead of the craft water, try clear gelatin....It might work and bring down the cost considerably!

I love it Bestie!!

Amy said...

It's beautiful Karlee!

Angel said...

Wow what a great idea. I bet that you can come up with something you both will like and can afford. Your so crafty.

Why not just use real water? I did something very similar for our centerpieces, but the bowl was larger - more like a fish bowl. I then used floral clay to hold a silk iris to the bottom, placed colored stones to match our colors and then filled with water. We floated candles on the top and they were beautiful.

So pretty!!

This is beautiful and the others have some great suggestions, too!! :)

This is really elegant - good luck on the shower invites although I am sure they will be beautiful!

Alli said...

Very nice! Could you just use real water?

Beckie W said...

Very cute, I agree try using just plain water....

CraftyShell said...

Very pretty I kinda think like the ladies , maybe use plain water and if the flower trys to float just glue gun it to the bottom since it will be covered with the gems. Very cute idea and very pretty.

Karlee,
My wedding centerpieces were similar-I used 3 large rose heads stuck on a frog at the bottom of a rose bowl(round clear glass bowl similar to a fish bowl) and you fill it with tap water. The roses are magnified and all sides of the table saw the rose head on(the roses are seated at somewhat of an angle).They were beautiful and fairly inexpensive. I don't know if that helps or not- You could even etch something on the bowl with the cricut method.
Have a great week.

Why don't you just use water? My girlfriend this for a party and it was so simple. She also added a simple plain floating candle on top of it. She just keeps reusing them because she's also a wedding planner!

ohhh...I love the arrangement. I wish you had a video using craft water as I've never seen it in action. I tried a youtube search that came back fruitless. Now gelatin sounds interesting....can someone tell me how that works, and how long the arrangement lasts?
