  • Christmas tree shop for a bowl, and flower shaped candles to float in water. They don't even need to be lit (I know there might be rules about that) or even flower petals.

  • Floating candles in long plain crystal vases, or floating flowers in those vases, if the tables are long put more than one, different sizes , preferably three if they are small tables go for less.

  • Depends on where you live. If you are near the beach you could do something like this, it is simple and super easy and elegant...

    Or something like this... is she a spicy old gal?these would be pretty inexpensive, for tealight holders and peppers, or rose petals, or whatever her favorite flower is.

  • For my baby shower we did this ..

    You get inexpensive Glass bowls at walmart
    You can find them in the craft section.

    Then you buy lemons and oranges. Thinly slice the oranges and lemons and line them on the inside of the bowl. So that they're 'wallpapering' the inside of the bowl. Then fill with water. The fragrence will be nice for the guests and it really is beautiful. Now you can put a floating candle in the middle or you can do what we did and put a large Gerber daisy ontop. We used fake floweres, but you can use real if you wish. It really is a beautiful center piece.

    You can also do like the picture shows and do really small fruits. Just use things like lemons, limes, oranges, etc. Because the thick skin will keep them from going bad in the water during the party.
