    Our wedding is at 4pm. Afterwards we will have a private HD reception, cut the cake, make toasts, etc. Our guests will go to a semi-private buffet at one of the restaurants at 7pm. This was much more cost effective than the private dinner that was $100 pp! Instead we get beer, wine, champagne, and passed HDs for 2 hours at $15 pp.

    The reception will take place in the garden by the gazebo (I need to find a pic). They include white able covers only and no real table decor.

    I'm planning on making turquoise satin toppers and centerpieces for the 4 tables we need. Here is my starting point.

    I've got the large hurricane that I was going to fill with beach glass, marbles, etc. I don't know if I should do the "drowned" flowers or floating candles. My concern with the candles is that it is late afternoon and not dark.

    They will sit on these beautiful aqua marbled glass tiles and I have 4 mini hurricanes for each table as well. Should I use tea lights or a single blossom? Should I tie ribbon around the tops of the hurricanes? Should I scatter shells on the tables?

      If you don't think you can see the candles, you can add a little bit of blue dye and drown the flowers. The reflection would be the flowers and the glass a nice sparkle. These are going to look very nice!

        Go for the drowned flowers! Espc with the size of the hurricane glass. Great colors! I might sprinkle some of the glass etc around outside of glass on the platform thing.

          It seems like it needs something else around the bottom...I don't know what...just something...rose petals maybe?

            I think scattered rose petals would look nice. Is turqoise the only color?

            ribbon around the base of the hurricanes would be pretty. and i like candles for the 4 small ones, but flowers for the large one.

            where did you find the aqua glass tiles? very pretty!

              Beautiful....I'm doing almost the same thing but I'm adding starfish around the centerpieces and my floating candles are different shell shapes.
