  • Mine is £10 having a tall vases filled with foliage and sunflowers! Stood on a mirror plate with tea lights and a sprinkling of confetti!! lol.

  • ours are costing £25 for the flowers to go in them and then im buying the vases, approx £15 each, then im buying floralytes, table mirrors and diamond sprinkles to go on the mirrors.

    So approx £50 each, but with buying my own vases i can then give them out as gifts at the end of the night.

    I'm having two different designs:

    Large martini glasses with huge flower arrangement on top - £50 each (inc. hire of vase)

    Fish Bowls with flower arrangement on top - £25 each (inc. hire of vase)

    All the arrangements can be easily removed at the end of the evening so we are planning on giving them to family/friends.

    I'm not at the stage of needing to chose mine yet! But anyhow I've been looking around and this looks like a good shop

    Wonder if anyone on here has used them? They have a real good selection so think I'll be using them.

    Oh and I saw a really good idea at a restuarant I went to at the weekend, they had a small fishbowl shaped vase with scrunched up matalic wire (kindof like this with a Gerbera flower head floating on the top of the water. Both the flower and the wire were bright orange but you could use other colours. I took a picture so will post it if anyone's interested?
