    Has anyone ever done either a single floating flower in a small little roud vase (the kind that look like small fishbowls) or a couple of small flowers floating in the vase? I'm thinking for my centerpieces I would like to try doing a single flower floating in water, with small tea light candles surrounding the outside. I'm wonder what would be a good flower to use. I know orchids look beautiful with this kind of look but I'm guessing that would be so expensive. For the cabo brides how much does a single orchid cost?

    didn't someone do the sunken flowers, I think it was Merryme and one of the Las Caletas girls. It makes the flower look bigger. I think that would be really pretty.

      I think that sounds beautiful. I might have to steal the idea to add to my tables.

      Here is the quote I received from the flower cart regarding orchids....

      If you want the pink cymbidiums added to the tables they are $ 12.00 each blossom. The other option is the smaller dendrobium orchids but there are 5-6 blossoms per stem and the cost is $ 10.00 per stem.

      Maybe I'll try this idea this weekend with one of the fake orchids I bought.

        What do you mean by sunken flowers? Does anyone have pics for inspiration?

        here's the thread she posted the pics in. I know someone else did lilies but I cannot remember who, I will keep looking.

          MerryMe did this at her wedding. I have Mariana working on a quote for me. I wanted to do orchids, but they are just too expensive for my budget. I'm going with red roses instead, just like in these pics.
