Water or no water for centerpieces?
Guys, I'm a purple and orange wedding this coming August. Smaller wedding, most of those people will end up taking photos during the cocktail hour while our ceremony room is flipped into a reception room. Therefore, I will have very few people available to set up reception decorations for me. I'm looking to come up with something lovely for each table (and other decorations). One thing I've thought of is glass cylinders or glass containers of any shape or size filled with either purple or orange colored water and with a big ol silk flower blossom floating on top. However, the water issue could be a challenge to do quickly, and neatly. Is there such a thing as glass containers with watertight lids? Then we can have everything ready in the venue's basement and all sealed up so that they can be moved upstairs quickly and no one has to worry about pouring water into containers.
Otherwise, what suggestions might you have for me?
