    Hey ladies!

    I was reading this month's copy of "Brides" magazine and came across what I thought was a GREAT idea for an AHR...fillable tables! they are clear tables (not sure if they're glass, plastic or what) but the tabletop part is basically like a rectangular "box" and in the magazine, it was filled with flowers and petals. I thought this was a wonderful, unique idea (you could even put in some starfish,etc. to go with the destination wedding theme) but I can't find any information on fillable tables! In the magazine, the company who created the look was signatureeventrentals.com, but they don't list prices on their website and considering I'm in Illinois and they're in New York, I highly doubt that's doable. Anyone heard of anything like this?

      Wow...very cool idea. I've never heard/seen anything like that. Looks like they might be really expensive, though, huh?

          I'm a caterer and event planner. Those tables are incredibly expensive because they are usually custom made. The ones for rent are shipped in from a bigger city,so you have to pay fright on top of rental, at least in my experience.

          You can DIY them by covering your table with whatever kind of decoration, use plexiglass spacers to create height and then a sheet of plexiglass on top as a cover.

          If you really want to do this I would look at doing one or two key tables like the cake table or the bridal table.

              Very cool idea!! I can see how it would be expensive, but just find someone handy and I bet you can make your own for considerably cheaper.

                    Very cool idea and I like Erin's idea of doing your own and just do key tables. A cake would look awesome on a table like that.
