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!!!

I love these! I am worried about taking them on the plane did you have any troubles? Can you take them as a carry on?

I love these! Does it matter what kind of flower you use? I've been ordering my flowers from afloral and I like what they have way better than michaels and hobby lobby but I don't know if the type of flower matters ... Silk, real touch, etc
