HELP-Colored Water Centerpieces?

Hey ladies!  I need your expertise.  I was on another site and found some pictures I fell in love with.  The centerpieces have colored water in the vases.  Do you all know if this is just food coloring?  And if so, will that dye the flowers?

I think if the flowers are white and they are in there for a while it will dye them...they did that as an example at VBS I worked at like 7 yrs ago!

YES!  You can use food coloring or SMUCKERS!!!  I LOVE this and totally support you haha I think its great!  Totally would have loved to do this, we used candelabras instead though...


My florist did a wedding recently with coloring- maybe ask around how they do it if you want something exactly as you have seen.  www.flowerallieweddings.com -check her blog it was a red and blue wedding!


You can also incorporate it with flowting candles etc too


- HMM :)

OMG..I love this!!  gives me an idea......


ANYWAY...I've seen this before, and it was done with food coloring, and not with white flowers.    BUT..i wouldn't use white flower like Mrs. cryflore said.  :D

When I was at Michaels this past weekend, in the bridal aisle they have these beads that you put in water and add food coloring to color the water.  These beads supposedly help the water not soak into the flowers.  ?  Don't know if they work though...

HMM--Smuckers??? Hmm, I'll have to check out your florist's blog. 


Seagirlrun--I'll have to check that out! Thanks for the info!

Dirty, I love the way it looks.  And you're right, it's downright cheap to do!  I have to figure out a way to get the perfect turquoise to go with our decor.  Why no colored water in SD?

Hey Dirty -


If you decide you want a DOC down in SC, let me know.  I have a friend just getting in the biz down there who would be a good rate.

I was going to photo 107063-1I was going to photo 107063-2 


I was going to do the candle in the water one, but then it would have been too expensive because of all the vases it would need for 20 tables.. but I love it.. and here's one with the a lit up base in colored water- it's hard to see with all the other uplighting in the roomI was going to photo 107063-3


But yea.. I think it is food coloring.. Good luck!

Ohh... I love this idea.  Adds a nice touch color!  I wish I saw this earlier... I would have done it for my wedding.
