      I really like the vases, and the napkin idea is cute too. I am doing similar colors, chocolate and slate blue, and I was having a hard time finding ribbons and bows to match the centerpiece. What I finally did was use a clear vase and fill it with colored glass that comes in just about any shade of blue you can imagine, and we are putting a submersible light at the bottom so it kind of glows. I found the colored glass and the lights on ebay pretty cheap. Or you could always use colored water, just a thought.

          I'm doing 3 vases in varying heights:12X5, 10X5, and 8X5. They'll have drowned orchids w/ a floating candle on top. And I plan to put 8 votives around that. I'm bringing the votives, and renting the vases from my WC.

            Leia78 That makes sense - a friend of my mom just told me the centerpieces shouldn't be higher than 12 inches - so you are perfect. If I weren't getting the turquoise vases, I might have tried to drown the antorcha instead - such a cool look! I am leaning twds three 8x2 vases with 2 stems of antorchas each, with little voltive candles scattered around the vases. The WC said I'd only have about 14 inches of space on the the table for the centerpiece area.

                that's really pretty ... nice !! I agree the max height would be 12' (that's how high mine is and it looks perfect)

                    Flores Julieta in Cancun was able to find turquoise cylinder vases for me!! -
                    I love the vases! It's exactly what I've been looking for! Do you know who Flores Julieta is getting them from? My resort is taking care of my flowers, but I want to find vases just like those ones - the color is perfect!
