        You will have more luck with finding those colours when they bring in their spring stuff!

          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
