Manzanita tree centerpieces with hanging votives. I asked around for a price for the tree, votive holders, and candles, wanna guess how much one of these supposedly costs????? 300 bucks a piece! If I have 15 tables that is $4500 just for the centerpieces, sounds crazy to me.
SO I am going to make them on my own. I will take 2 manzanita branches 18-24" for each centerpiece. Approx $15 for 2 including shipping.
Then add about 10-15 hanging votive holders with the candles (so far the cheapest I found are $1.59 a piece, I will still keep an eye out). These will be tied with ribbon or wire to the branches. Then I will attach small orange flowers to the branches like below, except the flowers will be smaller.
Tada Centerpieces for under $40 bucks! So I will have 15 of these for less then the price it would normally be for 2. If anyone finds hanging votive candle holders for cheap, let me know please!
