Help me create this please.....

Ok so I am looking to create a tabletop canopy type centerpiece because today I decided on a family style reception dinner. Since this limites my centerpiece options I decided I wanted to create a centerpiece above the table. Ill try to add an inspiration pic. I am trying to find an inexpensive way to have two "poles" on a flat base so it will stand or something on each end of the table and then add heavy duty line from one side to the other. Think clothes line...but I have no clue what I can use as the poles. I plan to hang small clear votives, crystals and pearl strands from it. Also to wrap it in some sort of garland. HELP!!!
