Here are the LED lights on Amazon - I have not bought them yet, but have played around with them on loan from a friend... Amazon.com: Submersible FloraLytes - White (Pack of 10): Everything Else
Search Amazon.com for "submersible floralytes". I think that's the major brand for this type of light. You can also get ones that scroll through several colors.
The lights also look great with these: Decor N More Water Pearls
Hard to tell on the website what they actually are, but basically they start as little hard beads (think caviar-size), and when you add water they expand to be almost the size of small marbles! They're sort of a stiff gel ball. You can put them in vases with water/flowers or even alone in a small fishbowl with a couple of LED lights - they look great! They reflect a lot of light and sort of glow, so they'd be great to add lighting to a night reception.
I have a friend who owns an import/export home decor company, so he gave me samples of the Water Pearls (and LED lights) to try. Very cool. And since they're so tiny to start, they're easy to transport!
Sorry this got so long - good luck! I'll try to post a picture of the lights with the Water Pearls soon - just need to find my card reader...!
