did you use silk or real flowers?? I’m thinking about doing something like this, but i’m not sure about how expensive it could get using real orchids…suggestions are welcome!!

I bought 6 regular ol’ straight sided 24″ cylinder vases, six light green green orchid stems (30″) from Michael’s. The excess of the stem will obviously need to be trimmed off so it will fit in the vase. I then got 6 bags of brown and tan colored river rocks that I’m going to put in the bottom of each vase to hide the weight I am going to put on the bottom of each stem. Then fill with water, and put a floating candle on top =]

has anyone attempted to use colored preserved orchids in a submerged centerpiece? my wedding colors are turquoise and orange, and i would love to add some color to my centerpieces, but am afraid the dye will run…

Does anyone know how long the flowers last under water? If you use real flowers how early can these be put together?

thanks,
