      I would just put floating candles and maybe some floating flowers in it. It looks beautiful! Hope you have a great time!!!

              I dont know what your budget is, but i would rim the edge of the fountain in candles, varying heights and maybe with no holders, just thick cream candles - really over flowing, and then I would defintely float the flowers and maybe try to hang some crystals...I look at the space and that fountain and it screams sophisticated glamour and I can see it all lit up with candles and dripping in crystals --- black glass and black crystal are soo in right in terms of interior design and that space would look amazing...you could always drape fabric around the base so that it swags if you want something soft at the fountain....(sorry to go on, and on...) oh and all of those suggestions are based on the idea that the shower is at night....what time of day is it at?

                hi,
                i am a wedding planner and designer in california so i do decor all the time my recommendation is to have rose petals and floating candles all thru out the fountain.

                lots of both (if it is daytime obviously not many candles are necessary).

                it would look gorgeous and not too expensive!!

                good luck!

                  Anny I was going to say do either rose petals and floating candles or do floating flowers kind of like the pic you posted with the candles. But I agree with Joellen I love the rose petals and then the floating candles. I think it gives it romance and sophistication. That place is beautiful btw! I hope you have my seat reserved already. LOL. I guess you will have to tell your FI that you need a vacation to NY b/c you will have to hand deliver my invitation.

                    That's what I was thinking too--- I can totally see that---- soften the overhead lighting a bit and let the candles provide the soft lighting.... very simple, but powerful, especially with the swag...

                      Thanx a lot girls!!!!!! Toby I liked the idea of fabric and large candles.. the shower is at 5.. maybe I could change it to 6 to make it darker and more apropiate for candles 'cause the ceiling is glass and there's a lot of light comming in..

                      Glenda of course you have your sit!!! I would love to go to new york to deleiver the invitation!! I'll tell my FI and maybe we can fly next weekend hahahaha
