I went to the Dollar Tree got 25 glass globes, 25 candles, and got the glass gems at Wal-Mart. I got fake rose petals from and I sprinkled the petals and gemstones around the globe with the candle in it that also has gems in it.

Nobody has answered my question it’s like they are ignoring me or something.;_ylt=Agj.T.H2t1iWpu5iVCLu.SHsy6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20100417074554AA3oxEa

Well if you can’t afford real flowers, I would consider submerging the fake ones in water. No one will be able to see that they aren’t real (or smell that they aren’t real). If you are looking for cheap options, I know that Dollar Tree has glass cylinder vases (yes only $1 each at Dollar Tree), fill these vases with pebbles of your choice, place the fake flowers in the vase and fill with water until it covers the flower. You could also place floating candles on top in the water. So elegant and cheap! No one will tell that you aren’t using real flowers and you can use any flower of your choice.

maybe you’re over thinking this? Simplicity can be the most beautiful thing! How about finding some elegant vases, and putting a single stem/branch in each vase. then you could sort of “scatter” the table with clear glass pebbles and candles. To add variety you could alternate the flowers at each table (say half roses and half cherry blossoms)

Just an idea, I know it’s really simple, but I think that it would be pretty

My idea… don’t DIY. I made my own centerpieces, and all I can say is that it wasn’t worth saving maybe $500 or so, because it cost me time I could have spend with out-of-town friends and family. I was making frigging centerpieces when I could have been hanging with my girls who I see maybe twice a year.

If I could do it over, I’d pay for centerpieces and let someone else worry about it.

Use fake cherry blossoms and put them in vases and wrap the bottom of vase in a ribbon thats the same color as the theme color of your wedding.

I really loved the way these looked at our wedding. We did them ourselves by printing out designs on vellum and then cutting the vellum to the size of the cheap glass cylinders. We attached them with double stick tape and wrapped ribbon around the bottom.

If you aren’t crafty, you can actually have them made to order from here:

Here are some ideas that you could with different colored roses. Whatever goes with your colors:

Or you could do something like this and use a small cherry blossom emblem instead of a monogram:
