I've been brainstorming centerpiece ideas and was just inspired when I walked into my living room a minute ago. I have a cobalt blue wine bottle saved from a medieval fair (YUM homemade root beer!) sitting on my mantel. Since I'm strongly considering blues and purples as my wedding colors, what do you guys think of the idea to get some cobalt glass bottles (kind of like the pic below - 375mL, half a normal wine bottle size and about $2/ea online) with just a few flowers in them? Not sure what I would put around the bases, maybe some loose flowers or just the favors, whatever those end up being. Ribbon could be tied around the bottle, or maybe print some custom wine labels? Definitely a work in progress, but I think it may be a good step towards an affordable centerpiece. I don't expect us to have a terribly large floral budget to be able to put big flower arrangements on every table, and I want alternatives to candles since so many venues don't allow them. Any thoughts or ideas?
