I am doing paper lanterns surrounded by shells, will look something like this

I did not want to bring anything glass so no worries about breakage and I did not want to rent centerpieces because I found them to be way overpriced.

        Our wedding had a Mexican theme, so we used coffee cans (easy to pack because we packed our OOT bag stuff inside of them) and then our WC took the flowers from our Huppah and put them into the cans to make the centerpieces for our reception.  The talavera tiles were coasters that we made as our wedding favors with our wedding date and names on the back (not as easy to pack because they are heavy):

            Thanks Ladies!!! I found the paper lanterns on wrapwithus.com they are currently on sale for $9.99, regularly $14.99, for the set of 3 lanterns. They come with a lightbulb also so no need to get votive LEDs. I bought 3 sets of the lanterns. I found pretty lafrge bags of shells at Christmas Tree Shoppe for i think $1, and i just need the charger plates which I saw at the lot less stores for $1 and table runners which I am looking for my color now, its guava, like a deeper coral color.

            We are doing manzanita tree branches with hanging crystals.  I am getting the branches at the resort, and I've collected/bought all my crystals here in various shapes in sizes. 

            My inspiration:

              My centrepiece will be blue floating orchids in cylindrical vases. I"m not sure how to attach pictures here. :S
