Hey guys i was putting together my centerpieces of floating candles with pearl vasefiller. I am not a huge fan, my fiance and future father in law suggested maybe adding a floating flower. Ive been trying to look things up but im not getting far. Do you guys know what type of faux flowers to get that float and are safe around the candles? Also i am trying to stay away from roses.. im posting what it looks like right now again i am not crazy about it...(also they dont have enough water in them in these pics)Floating candle centerpiece help! 1

    I think it's a good and pretty start Smiley smile it doesn't all have to be inside the bowl, though. Maybe, because the pearls really are pretty, you could put some flower heads outside the bowl? You could also color the water to match one of the wedding colors if you'd like. Not sure if any of these appeal to you...

    I understand no roses...I prefer lilies Smiley winking

    I think it’s pretty! You just need more water to give it more depth. Maybe white petals sprinkled around the outside on the table.

    I would be afraid of fake flowers catching fire. Maybe you can have the candles floating by themselves (with or without pearls) and fake flowers in glass cups outside the vase. If you're doing your own, check real flowers which are pretty cheap and ton of variety at fiftyflowers.com which might be an option.

    I agree with Leanne - more water would make it seem fuller and petals on the table would look very elegant!

    Leannes idea was great. I think outside the container would look beautiful.

    A pop of color somewhere( maybe color candles?) would help along with a deeper dish to separate the Pearl's and candles.

    What about adding colored water beads? Dollar tree has them already to go, or you can get them at Walmart and add them to water and they swell up. Will fill space and add color, water absorbs into the beads.

    I like the idea of having things on the table, too, but if you're going to put pearls on the table, they should be in a plate/dish so they don't roll away. Another way to extend the centerpieces onto the table would be to wrap the base of the bowl with greenery.


    For the flowers, are you 100% set on having them be fake? I've only ever seen fresh flowers used for this, and with fake flowers, even if they're not flammable, they'll probably smell really bad if they get too close to the flame.
    What kind of flowers are you using in other parts of your wedding? Any flower with tightly packed petals should work. A few options that immediately come to mind are ranunculus, peonies, or zombies.
