    I'm thinking about doing centerpieces now... I wasnt going to originally but now here is what I'm thinking. Short square vases with blue glass like stones at the bottom filled with Gerbera Daisies. I'm thinking more glass like then actual stones, almost clear or see through. Does anyone have any ideas where I can buy the blue stones for cheap?

        Are you talking about the glass marble things or beach glass?

        They have both at the Dollar Tree/$1 store here.

        This seller on e-bay seems to have good pricing. The dollar store bags are kind of small so the bulk deal sounds good.

          I have some blue sea glass that I bought at Pottery Barn last year for a home decor project I never finished. I think I have either 3 or 4 bags (they're probably around 5lbs each). They were expensive (don't remember how much, but something like $10 each), I'd sell them for $15 + shipping.

            ditto, I bought mine at the dollar store, and they are just as good as the others I have seen in the store

              I was also having trouble finding pink glass gems...I finally found some at super walmart but not just pink alone...red, pink and clear so I will sift through the 3 bags I bought and take all the pink out. Howeer, I saw blue alot. dark blue though. I am not sure what color blue you're looking for?

              The garden stores are a good idea...I didn't think of that. I think Michaels had blue too.

              I like your idea...it wil look very nice. what color daisies?

                  I got my glass stones from Walmart. They were around $2 each pack. They have LOTS of colors.

                    Thanks everyone for your help! I didn't think they would be easy to find, I guess I was wrong.
                    Sarah- Thanks, I'm going to look around and see if I can find some, if not I will definately take you up on your offer!
                    Michelle- I'm not sure what color daisies yet, all of the bouquets will be gerbera daisies but I haven't figured out colors yet.

                      I got the blue and clear stones from the dollar tree and I did some demos I need advise on. I am going to post the poll tonight they look great for a dollar!
