Float a rose or gerbera daisy in the round vase if it is more like a bowl type vase.

you could do a floating candle.. (Walmart has a wedding section) you could get river rocks to put in the bottom.. you can find them in peoples yards lol just find your own pebbles and clean them off.. and then get small gold fish to put in the vases

then because you don’t want to keep them at the dinner ask one person from each table to pull out a dollar and pass it to the person next to you.. and then do a round with music almost like hot potato.. then once the music stops the person keeps the dollar and the person who pulled the dollar out gets to keep the vase.. then your not stuck with the fishes (only if you want to )

I think it would be pretty to put just a little moss around the bottom of the vase and put a neutral color candle inside.

An outdoor wedding sounds beautiful. I’ve been scoping out ideas from

Here is a link to an article about non-floral centerpieces. I thought the one with rocks looks pretty cool.

What we did was recreate my bridal bouquet for every table centerpiece – it was very easy to do because I just had 7 blush roses. We bought small clear square vases and cut the flowers down to fit. Worked out perfectly and it was inexpensive, too.

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:

Just some ideas! Good luck!
