I was originally quoted $90 a table for centerpieces! These will cost me less that that for ALL the tables!!


Large Vase (10in) @ Wal-Mart for $2 each

Medium Vase (7in) @ Dollar Tree for $1 each

Orchid purchased from Michaels for $4 (on sale) has four orchids on each stem

Floating Candles purchased from Michaels for $1 each, you can look online for cheaper ones!


I will also be putting votive candles around these vases and some white seashells/starfish to make them beachy. I am putting one vase of each size on the tables surrounded by 5 or so votives. On the head table I will have 1 large vase and 2 small vases (head table made up of 3 long tables, a set of vases on each of the long tables) with votives surrounding them.


Cost = 7 large vase = $14

10 medium vase = $10

7-8 orchid stems = $32

17 floating candles = $17

36 votives (from Michaels) = $15

seashells = $5-10


GRAND TOTAL = $98 (high estimate)


That is less than $100 for 4 round tables and the head table!!!

Looks beautiful! Do you know how you plan to pack all the vases? Love the idea but not sure if I can make it down without breaking all the glassware :)

Those are gorgeous! I'm also really curious about how you're getting everything down there. This is exactly the look I want too, but I know I won't have the room, or weight available in my suitcases to take these. I also figured I'd spend just as much shipping them down.
