forgotten find!

i was looking through my pictures of previous jobs for a spec clarification and found this AWESOME idea! i had totally forgotten about this! for Erie Bank's open house at their downtown Erie branch early 2008, they had these super fun martini glasses filled with water, a floating candle and flower. i think they are adorable! now, someone is gonna need to hook me up with probably 90+ of these, and i'll have great centerpieces for the wedding.

also, i found these a few months ago when searching for some inexpensive candles & holders. i adore these giant martini glasses! they are pricey though.

i love the look of all these candles on the table! makes me want tons and tons of candles!! and rectangular tables...but i'm pretty much out of luck there...

I think Michaels sold those big martini glasses when I used to work there. I don't remember how much they cost but they have 40% off coupons in the paper almost every week. If you're patient or get some others to help you, you could gradually get a bunch pretty cheap! It would be nice to buy something you can use again. I think we ended up with 20 shallow glass bowls after our wedding that we ended up selling at a garage sale dirt cheap since we didn't know what to do with them.

i like the martini glasses but they seem too small for a reception hall to make a statement. i LOVE love that pic with the huge bowls and all teh candles. gorgeous, romantic, modern and just awesome!! go for that! :)
