    Hi everyone...I need help or suggestions on my centerpieces...I originally wanted to do the centerpiece picture below (bottom-right hand-side) but I went to see those white square plates at Bed Bath & Beyond and they are pretty darn heavy!! I need approx. 8 so that's REALLY heavy. Any ideas of what else I can use instead of the plates?? I still want to do the candles and river rocks...help.

      I have some dinner plates similar to that (not exactly) and found some plastic plates at Target that look identical! You really couldn't tell just looking that they were plastic and not ceramic. Hope that works!

          I found these square chargers online but they only have gold and silver. On the table I will have chocolate brown runners so I'm not sure if silver or gold would clash too much. ()

            You could also try having it laid out on the table without a plate like this:

              maybe look for lighter plates ...Try pier 1 they have a lot of affordable and light weight things but look expensive and solid also try Homegoods, TJMaxx, or Marshal's they all have some great stuff

                  you can look for plastic charger(?) plates. the ones that go under the plate themselves. i have some silver metallic ones that i bought from target couple of years ago. super light and big enough to fit candles. hope that helps...

                      well I found charger plates which I know are really light but I wasnt sure if the silver or gold ones would go with my colors (which are chocolate brown and sky blue). any thoughts? Unless I can spray paint them but I dont really feel like doing all that, LOL
